However, through Green OA, IGI Global supports a Fair Use Policy, enabling authors to Post the final typeset PDF (which includes the title page, table of contents and other front materials, and the copyright statement) of their chapter or article (NOT THE ENTIRE BOOK OR JOURNAL ISSUE), on the author or editor's secure personal website and/or their university repository site. See the Fair Use Policy for sharing allowances conducive to Green Open Access.
  • Open Access Publishing: If the author choses to publish under OA, the authors receive the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) licensing arrangement. The copyright for the work remains solely with the author(s) of the article.
