This policy sets out how the Regional Studies Journal (RSJ) authors can archive copies of their work on their web pages, corporate web pages, and various other subject repositories. RSJ is an open-access license; articles can be made available immediately according to their specific Creative Common terms license. Suppose an author has published an article under an Open Access license. In that case. In that case, RSJ will encourage the author to share the Version of the Record on publication instead of the Accepted Manuscript. Authors may also reuse the Abstract and Citation information (e.g., Title, Author name, Publication dates) of their article anywhere, including social all media such as LinkedIn, Facebook, blogs, and Twitter, providing that, where possible, a link is included back to the article on the RSJ site. Preferably the link should be, or form, the Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which can be found in the Citation information about the article online. The author may place the accepted version on the author''s website, company/institutional repository, or archive. Self-archiving of the submitted version is not subject to an embargo period. RSJ is now formally archived in the Iraqi Academic Scientific Journal (IASJ)
