The Perth ILJ provides immediate open access to its content and abides by the Budapest Open Access Initiative definition of Open Access:
‘By “open access” to [peer-reviewed research literature], we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users 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 research published in the journal is also open to the public and reusable under the terms of the Creative Commons CC-BY license.
The Perth ILJ also encourages authors to post pre-publication manuscripts in their institutional repositories and on their websites prior to and during the submission process and to freely post the final PDF version to institutional and subject repositories after publication.
