  • Understand what each user license permits and the rights it grants to readers to use your article.
  • Check if your funding body or institution requires the use of a specific license in their policy.
  • Read your journal's Guide for Authors to ensure they offer the license you want to use.
  • Visit Creativecommons.org to read what to consider before agreeing to theJournal of Media & Communication (JMC)’ user license. It is important to note that your license selection is non-revocable. We provide Open Access publishing through a CC-BY NC SA license. The Journal provides authors the option to distribute their work, while still employing a commonly used OA licensing mechanism. The CC-BY NC SA license breaks down into the following:

  • Budapest Definition


    Journal of Media & Communication (JMC) follows definition of "open access" from the Budapest Open Access Initiative BOAI. By open access to this 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.
