Copyright

The authors of Science INSIGHTS® have two choices for the copyright of their published paper. The first is they can transfer the copyright to Science INSIGHTS®, so the Permission from the Journal is needed if the paper or some parts of the paper is needed to be spread, advertized, propagated, republished, reprinted, or changed. The illegal or business use of the paper will sue claims. Once transferred, the paper will be marked with “PC” or haven't any marks there, i.e. publisher copyright. The second choice for the authors is that they can keep the copyright of the paper, but under this situation, they need pay $2,000 (USD) for the copyright keeping, and once kept, all rights will belong to the authors, and then NO permission from the Journal is needed. Once kept, the paper will be marked with “AC”, i.e. author copyright. No matter which choice the authors finally decided, the Copyright Transfer or Keeping Agreement should be signed before publication. Once the transfer agreement is signed, the authors need pay $3,000 (USD) if they want to redeem the copyright. If the Journal did not get the signed copyright form before the assigned publication date, the Journal will keep all rights and the authors cannot redeem the copyright any more.
