Open Access Statement

The Journal of Literature and Science is committed to real and immediate open access for academic work. All of the JLS’s articles and reviews are free to access immediately from the date of publication. There are no author charges (commonly known as APCs) prior to publication, and no charge for any reader to download articles and reviews for their own scholarly use. The JLS does not, therefore, operate either a Gold or Green model of open access, but is free to all at any time and in perpetuity. To facilitate this the JLS depends upon the financial underwriting provided by the generosity of Cardiff University’s School of English, the goodwill of its editorial team and advisory board, and the continuing support of its network of peer reviewers.

Creative Commons Licence

The Journal of Literature and Science also operates under the Creative Commons Licence CC-BY-NC-ND. This allows for the reproduction of articles, free of charge, for non-commercial use only and with the appropriate citation information. All authors publishing with the JLS accept these as the terms of publication. Please note that copyright of the content of all articles and reviews remains with the designated author of the article or review. Copyright of the layout and design of JLS articles and reviews remains with the Journal of Literature of Science and cannot be used in other publications.

The JLS is a member of PILA (Publishers International Linking Association) and submits all articles and reviews, including all works that these cite, to CrossRef for cross-referral. To find JLS articles and reviews via their DOI numbers, use the URL[DOI number]
