Archiving Policy


We, being the green publisher, follow a paperless environment, therefore, allow self-archiving of accepted and published papers through an open access policy. Authors retain the copyright of their scholarly 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. We shall use the services of LOCKSS & CLOCKSS. We allow archiving and storing of the published papers by individuals, organizations, institutions and others.

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