Open Access Policy

Research Journal of Pharmacognosy (RJP) is published by the Iranian Society of Pharmacognosy and the Traditional Medicine and Materia Medica Research Center (TMRC), Shahid behheshti University of Medical Sciences. We believe that all research is for the benefit of humankind; research is the product of an investment by society, and therefore its fruits should be returned to all people without borders or discrimination, serving society universally and in a transparent fashion. That is why RJP provides online free and open access to all of its research publications.



Under Bethesda Statement on Open Access Publishing (June 20, 2003), RJP is fully compliant with open access mandates, by publishing its articles under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial licence (CC-BY-NC). Authors retain copyright of their work and can deposit their publication in any repository. This means that articles can be freely redistributed and reused by the author and others as long as the article is properly cited. Published articles in RJPcan be deposited immediately into an online repository or social network without any cost. RJP articles can be emailed to colleagues, printed, archived in a collection, included in course-packs, and distributed without restrictions.
