A concept of open access

Starting with 2017 the journal became an open access with two options of publication: gold (immediate) or delayed (one year embargo period) open access. In this way we address respect to our network and provide an opportunity to our authors to publish their papers in OA.

Delayed open access is a temporary measure to be available in 2017 in order to prepare our network of authors and subscribers for the complete move towards open access by 2019.
