Peeters Publishers (Leuven, Belgium) supports open access initiatives and offers a variety of OA models. All articles published in OA are peer-reviewed.
To protect the authors’ work and allow free distribution of their work, Peeters offers to use a creative commons license (public copyright license); the open license Peeters uses is the CC-BY-NC-ND (Creative commons attributions Non-commercial no Derivatives license version 2.0). This license allows users to download and share the OA article for non-commercial purposes, as long as the article is reproduced as a whole, without any changes, and the original authorship is acknowledged.
High-quality OA publishing requires either funding (via APC, funding, institutional subsidies, etc.) or substantial embargo periods. Peeters offers 4 different open access models:
GOLD OPEN ACCESS
The fully open access journal is immediately after publication freely and permanently available online. All the articles (version of record: the final published version) are published on our open journals platform and can be shared directly by the author on multiple platforms and repositories.
- Africana Linguistica
- Journal of the European Society of Women in Theological Research
- Journal of the International Association of Buddhist Studies
GREEN OPEN ACCESS
Also referred to as self-archiving; the green open access allows authors to share the version of record (final published version) of their article on their institution or funder's repository. Green OA can be allowed immediately after publication or after a substantial embargo period, depending on the journal.
DELAYED OPEN ACCESS (MOVING WALL)
Some journals make their articles available after a substantial embargo period. The embargo period varies between various journals. After the embargo period, the version of record of all articles is made freely and permanently available online.
- Bibliotheca Orientalis
- Bulletin of the American Society of Papyrologists
- Études Phénoménologiques
- Journal of Septuagint and Cognate Studies
- Les Études Classiques
- Logique et Analyse
OPTIONAL OPEN ACCESS
Authors of accepted articles can opt to pay an article-processing charge (APC) to make their final published version freely and permanently available online immediately after publication. This gives the author the possibility to publish open access in a non-open access journal. If in a subscription journal the author does not choose to pay the APC, his article will be published in the normal manner, and will not be made freely available online.
