Open Access Statement

Journal of Applied Science, Engineering, Technology, and Education (ASCI) is committed to the principles of open access, aiming to promote the widest possible dissemination of scholarly knowledge. This policy outlines ASCI's approach to open access publishing and its commitment to providing free and unrestricted access to its published articles.

Open Access Model

ASCI follows the gold open access model, where all articles published in the journal are freely accessible to readers without any subscription or payment barriers. Authors retain copyright of their articles, and ASCI applies the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike (CC-BY-NC-SA) license to ensure authors' rights and enable non-commercial sharing and adaptation of the content.

Author Responsibilities

Authors submitting manuscripts to ASCI agree to publish their work under the CC-BY-NC-SA license. This license grants readers the right to use, share, and adapt the articles for non-commercial purposes, provided proper attribution is given and any resulting derivative works are distributed under the same license.

Article Processing Charges (APCs)

ASCI is committed to keeping open access publishing affordable and sustainable. ASCI does not charge authors for submitting their manuscripts nor publication of the articles. ASCI provides with technical and financial support. Based on that, ASCI is dedicated to providing free services for authors from low-income countries or those facing financial constraints, ensuring inclusivity and equitable access to open knowledge.

Archiving and Indexing

All articles published in ASCI are preserved in reputable archiving services, such as the Garba Rujukan Digital (GARUDA) Ministry of Education and Culture Republic of Indonesia, to ensure long-term accessibility and sustainability. Additionally, ASCI takes proactive measures to ensure its content is widely indexed by major databases, repositories, and search engines, increasing its discoverability and impact. Please read our Archiving Policy.

Compliance and Review

ASCI regularly reviews and updates its open access policy to align with evolving best practices and global initiatives. The journal is committed to supporting the open access movement and promoting the free exchange of knowledge, fostering global collaboration, and advancing scientific progress.
