Copyright in a work isn’t meant for a lifetime. Its duration depends on the nature of the work and varies from country to country. However, for an academic article, the duration is usually 70 years past the life of the author.
Copyright at ARCC
Upon submission, the author(s) give a license to publish, including to display, store, copy, and reuse the manuscript's content. The ARCC needs the publishing right to publish an article and make it available. We ask the authors to sign a contract giving us important publishing rights. This process will be after the manuscript has gone through peer review, been accepted, and moved into final production.
ARCC journals discourage and object to the practice of duplication of text/figures in any form and keep it in check before the submission of research papers.
The authors are responsible for this information before the submission of manuscripts with proper documents. The Editor-in-Chief has the right to approve or reject the manuscripts.
We believe that protecting the intellectual property rights of authors is crucial in maintaining the integrity of our publications and ensuring that authors receive appropriate credit and recognition for their work. To that end, we have established the following policies regarding copyright:
Original Work: All submissions must be original work and must not infringe upon the copyright of any other individual or entity. Authors are responsible for obtaining any necessary permissions or licenses for any material used in their submissions.
Plagiarism: Plagiarism is strictly prohibited in all of our publications. All submissions are checked for plagiarism using advanced software, and any instances of plagiarism will result in the rejection or retraction of the publication.
Fair Use: We recognize the importance of fair use and encourage authors to cite and reference the work of others appropriately. However, authors must ensure that their use of copyrighted material falls within the bounds of fair use.
We will do everything in our power to ensure that the intellectual property rights of authors are protected. If copyright infringement is identified, we will take immediate action to address the issue and maintain the integrity of our publications.
