Peer Review & Publication Policies
1. Open Access Policy
In order to ensure maximum reach of contents published by Eduzone, we have adopted the open access policy, meaning that;
- All the articles published by Eduzone are made freely accessible online immediately after publication in an easily readable format, without any subscription or registration
- All the published articles are licensed under a Creative Commons license. Articles can be shared and adapted, provided the attribution for the work is given

- Associate editor and review editors provide the administrative support to maintain the integrity of peer review
- In case, authors challenge editor's negative decision with suitable arguments, the manuscript can be sent to one more reviewer and the final decision will be made based upon his recommendations.
3. Licensing Policy
To fully realize the potential of open access to research literature, barriers to reuse need to be removed. The Creative Commons (CC) licenses have emerged as an effective legal instrument to achieve this.
Instead of transferring rights exclusively to publishers (the approach usually followed in subscription publishing), authors grant a non-exclusive license to the publisher to distribute the work, and all users and readers are granted rights to reuse the work. CC-BY allows for unrestricted reuse of content, subject only to the requirement that the source work is appropriately attributed. The CC-BY license thereby requires that authors are given appropriate credit for their work, as explained in a recent post from Creative Commons.
4. Archiving Policy
This journal published by Eduzone utilizes the AWS system to create permanent archives of the journal contents for purposes of preservation and restoration.
