Open access and copyright policy
Tabriz University of Medical Sciences provides immediate open access to the content published in the journals on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. To this end, authors are required to grant the journal an exclusive license for open access publication of their article with a Creative Commons attribution license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0), which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. The authors of the articles retain the copyright to their work.
At the moment, the authors are not required to pay a submission fee or article processing/publication charge for open access publication of their work, as these charges are currently covered by funds available to Tabriz University of Medical Sciences Department of Vice-Chancellor for Research.
