Authors' Rights

TechMind Research Society allows the authors to retain the copyright of their articles under Creative Commons License. It permits authors to distribute, remix, adapt, build upon this work non-commercially, and license their derivative works on different terms, provided the original work is properly cited and the use is non-commercial. The author only grants to the Publisher exclusive first publication rights in the Work, and further grants a non-exclusive license for other uses of the Work for the duration of its copyright in all languages, throughout the world, in all media.

The author retains the following rights:
  • Posting the article on their own personal or institutional website for non-commercial purpose.

  • Making a reasonable number of copies for personal or professional use. This includes the contributor’s own teaching purposes.

  • Republishing part or the entire article in a book or other publication edited by the author (with due acknowledgement to the first publication).

Know your rights as authors in Open access Journals:
  • The author is the copyright holder. As the author of a work you are the copyright holder unless and until you transfer the copyright to someone else in a signed agreement.

  • The copyright holder possesses the exclusive rights of reproduction, distribution, public performance, public display, and modification of the original work. An author who has transferred copyright without retaining these rights must ask permission unless the use is one of the statutory exemptions in copyright law.

  • The copyright holder controls the work. Decisions concerning use of the work, such as distribution, access, pricing, updates, and any use restrictions belong to the copyright holder. Authors who have transferred their copyright without retaining any rights may not be able to place the work on course Web sites, copy it for students or colleagues, deposit the work in a public online archive, or reuse portions in a subsequent work. That’s why it is important to retain the rights you need.

  • The Copyright law allows you to transfer copyright while holding back rights for yourself and others.
