Archiving Policy

AL-ABṢĀR allows self-archiving of accepted and published papers through open access policy before and after the publication of a paper. Authors retain the copyright of their scholarly work and can archive pre-print and post-print or publisher’s version/PDF to personal or institutional repositories or libraries anytime without requiring permission from the journal or publisher.
Authors of published articles in AL-ABĀR are entitled to deposit their published papers in institutional and/or centrally organized repositories and can make this publicly available immediately upon acceptance and publication, provided that AL-ABṢĀR attributes as the original place of publication and that correct citation details are given.
Authors can also make their published article publicly available immediately after publication without requiring any permission from different repositories, libraries, or personal websites if they also deposit the URL of their published article, in addition to the PDF version by correctly citing the journal name with other citation details.

Digital Archiving and Preservation

This journal utilizes the PKP PN, LOCKSS, and CLOCKS systems to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.
