Copyright and Publishing Rights

The copyright and publishing rights for the Indus Journal of Medical and Health Sciences (IJMH) are held by the Indus Journals, a division of Indus Health Network (INH). The IJMH is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles, reviews, case reports, and other scholarly works in the field of medical and health sciences.

The copyright transfer agreement that authors sign when submitting their manuscripts to the IJMH states that the authors grant the IJMH the exclusive right to publish, distribute, and reproduce their work in all forms and media. The authors also grant the IJMH the right to make their work available online and to archive it in databases.

In exchange for these rights, the IJMH provides the authors with the following benefits:

  • The IJMH will publish the authors' work in a high-quality, peer-reviewed journal.
  • The IJMH will distribute the authors' work to a global audience.
  • The IJMH will make the authors' work available online for free.
  • The IJMH will help the authors to promote their work.

The IJMH also allows authors to retain certain rights to their work, such as the right to use their work for educational or research purposes. However, the IJMH must be acknowledged as the original publisher of the work.

If you are interested in publishing your work in the IJMH, please visit the journal's website for more information.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about copyright and publishing rights for journal articles:

  • In some cases, authors may be able to negotiate with the journal to retain some copyright ownership.
  • The copyright transfer agreement may also specify the terms of reuse of the work, such as whether it can be used for commercial purposes.
  • It is important to read the copyright transfer agreement carefully before signing it.

If you have any questions about copyright and publishing rights, you should consult with an intellectual property lawyer.
