Open Access Policy

JOHA is a peer-reviewed open-access journal, conforming fully to The Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI)  and DOAJ Open Access Definition. "By 'open access' to this literature, we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, is to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited".

Author(s) retain unrestricted copyrights and publishing rights of their work. In addition, the author(s) also give JOHA/Belitung Raya Foundation the right as a publisher, the right to the first publication of all published material.

Permission to reuse content from the journal is not necessary, as the authors hold the copyright to their articles.

This license permits others to remix, adapt, and expand upon the authors' work in a non-commercial manner. While proper acknowledgment of the authors and their original work is required for any derivative works, there is no obligation for these derivative works to be licensed under the same terms.

  • Copying or downloading of articles or linking to such articles for further redistribution, sale, or licensing;
  • Copying, downloading, or posting by a site or service that incorporates advertising with such content;
  • The inclusion or incorporation of article content in other works or services (other than normal quotations with an appropriate citation) that is then available for sale or licensing for a fee (for example, a compilation produced for marketing purposes, inclusion in a sales pack);

  • Linking to article content in e-mail messages redistributed for promotional, marketing, or educational purposes;

Teaching institutions are permitted to produce multiple copies, free of charge, for the purpose of teaching, as long as those copies are not resold or reproduced.
