Our commitment to open access is driven by a conviction that it is crucial for the progression of science and knowledge. We aim to facilitate the widespread dissemination and availability of research published in our journal. Open access also serves to benefit authors by amplifying the visibility, impact, and reach of their work.

By choosing to publish with Heca Journal of Applied Sciences, authors agree to the following terms under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial (CC BY-NC) license:

  1. Authors retain copyright and grant the journal the right of first publication with the work, allowing others to share the work non-commercially, provided they acknowledge the authorship and the work's initial publication in Heca Journal of Applied Sciences.

  2. Authors are allowed to engage in separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., posting it to an institutional repository or publishing it in a book), as long as the distribution is non-commercial and the initial publication in Heca Journal of Applied Sciences is acknowledged.

  3. Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their personal website) before and during the submission process, as this can lead to fruitful exchanges and potentially earlier and increased citations of the published work.

We are committed to upholding high standards of peer review, editorial quality, and ethical publishing practices. Our open access policy is not influenced by any financial considerations or conflicts of interest, and we will always strive to provide a fair and unbiased publishing platform for all researchers.
