Open Access Statement
Turkish Medical Student Journal is a fully open access journal that provides free and unrestricted online availability to its content immediately upon publication without delay. This means;
- all content is freely and limitlessly available without charge to the user or her/his institution;
- everyone has free and unlimited access to the full-text of all articles without subscription;
- all articles are released immediately in open access format (no embargo period);
- everyone is allowed 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, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited. The copyright holder of a scholarly work grants usage rights to others using an open license. Turkish Medical Student Journal applies the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) license to its published articles. Authors that submit their papers for publication thereby agree to have the CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license applied to their works.
This is in accordance with the Budapest Open Access Initiative which can be assessed at the URL http://www.budapestopenaccessinitiative.org/.
