Copyright Terms

As a concept, 'open access' refers to being able to access information freely (without restrictions). However, some mainstream for-profit publishers use academic knowledge monetarily, the exact opposite of 'open access'. We intend to encourage and enable open access on our platform in order to promote 'sharing knowledge' as one of the main aims of the network and journal. All copyrights and publishing rights remain with individual and joint authors.


If a piece of work is deemed to be a  joint authorship because it involves collaboration. Each author owns the copyright to the contributions made.


The author(s) of an article retains all rights to its use, it is highly recommended that they properly cite and reference the article acknowledging JFCIA as the original place of publication.

A copy of the author's article can be deposited in an institutional repository of their choice without embargo.
