Post-Acceptance Rights


For articles published in Journal of Business, Economics and Management Research, the journal uses an exclusive license agreement to define the post-acceptance rights. Under this license, Authors grant the following rights to the journal owner:


  • The exclusive right to publish and distribute the article, and to grant this right to others, including for commercial purposes.

  • The right to publish and circulate the article as open access under CC BY 4.0 license.

  • The right to provide the article in all forms and media so that the article can be used on the latest technology even after publication.

  • The authority to enforce the rights in the article, on behalf of the Authors, against third parties, for example, in the case of plagiarism or copyright infringement.


As an Author, you (or your employer or institution) also retain certain rights:


  • The right to reuse the article in the same ways as is permitted to third parties under the relevant user license, so long as it contains the end user license and a DOI link to the version of record on the platform.

  • The right to retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data).

  • The right to proper attribution and credit for the published work.

  • The right to personal use of the article, either in full or in part, such as: (i) use in classroom teaching – including distribution of paper or electronic copies; (ii) distribution of copies to research colleagues for their own personal non-commercial use; (iii) inclusion in a thesis or dissertation – provided this is not to be published commercially; (iv) use in a subsequent compilation of the Author’s works; (v) expanding the article to book-length form; and (vi) otherwise using or re-using portions or excerpts in other works.


Upon acceptance of an article, Authors will be asked to complete a Journal Publishing Agreement. The Corresponding Author will receive an email acknowledging acceptance of the manuscript together with a Journal Publishing Agreement form or a link to the online version of this form. Note that production for an accepted article will be kept on hold until the signed agreement has been returned.
