This journal contributes to scientific research by adopting the principle of free sharing with the public and by providing open access to content that supports global information sharing. The Open Access Policy (BOAI) is based on the Budapest Open Access Initiative guidelines http://www.budapestopenaccessinitiative.org/. In accordance with the definition of BOAI, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author, users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software or use them for any other lawful purpose without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself.
