Mediova Publishing is a ‘green’ publisher, as we allow self-archiving of accepted and published papers through an open access policy. Authors retain the copyright of their work and can archive pre-print and post-print or publisher’s version/PDF to personal or institutional repositories or libraries without requiring permission from the journal or publisher.

Authors of published articles in READS are entitled to deposit their accepted manuscript or the version of record (published papers) in institutional and/or centrally organized repositories and can make this publicly available immediately upon acceptance and publication, provided that the journal name and Mediova Publishing are attributed as the original place of publication and that correct citation details are given.

Upon acceptance of the paper by the journal, the authors acknowledge while making their article publicly available that the article has been accepted for publication as follows:

This article has been accepted for publication in [Journal Title] Published by Mediova Publishing.

Authors can also make their published article publicly available immediately after publication without requiring any permission to different repositories, libraries, or personal websites provided that they also deposit the URL of their published article, in addition to the PDF version by correctly citing the journal and Mediova Publishing as publisher along with other citation details.



In order to digitally preserve all published scholarly content, Mediova Publishing commits to submit the metadata of all its journals to LOCKS and other repositories such as RePEc. This is to make sure that the published scholarly content by Mediova Publishing remains available to the community despite any accidental loss of data in its personal archival records. Mediova Publishing has further made sure that the metadata of all of its open access journals is compliant to well-known repository services and their digital crawlers may regularly collect it for record and preservation.
