AnaPub Publications follow two primary models journals should consider with regards to copyright:
Typically open access journals will choose one of several Creative Commons' licenses for their journals' content.
Authors also grant any third party the right to use the article freely as long as its integrity is maintained and its original authors, citation details and publisher are identified.
The Creative Commons Attribution License 4.0 formalizes these and other terms and conditions of publishing articles.
Open access journals permit authors to retain their copyright. The author has full control over the work (e.g. retains the right to reuse, distribute, republish etc.). In this scenario, the author will often license the right of first publication to the journal.
This model is more common with traditional, subscription-based journals. It is less commons for open access journals.
In this model, the author transfers the copyright and the associated rights along with it to the journal. This means the journal is now responsible for the article. The journal can elect to license back certain rights to the author.
AnaPub Publications some journals also follow Open Data policy and the Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Public Domain Dedication waiver applies to all published data in these journals.
Creative Commons licenses dictate to readers what they may do with the journal's content. There are several licenses to choose from and ultimately depend on what the journal thinks is best for its authors and its readership.
