Journal author rights
In order for IJFA to publish and disseminate research articles, we need publishing rights. This is determined by a publishing agreement between the author and IJFA . This agreement deals with the transfer or license of the copyright to IJFA and authors retain significant rights to use and share their own published articles
THE JOURNAL PUBLISHING AGREEMENT
Assignment of copyright
I hereby assign to the Copyright Owner the copyright in the manuscript identified above (where Crown Copyright is asserted, authors agree to grant an exclusive publishing and distribution license) and any tables, illustrations or other material submitted for publication as part of the manuscript (the “Article”). This assignment of rights means that I have granted to the Copyright Owner the exclusive right to publish and reproduce the Article, or any part of the Article, in print, electronic and all other media (whether now known or later developed), in any form, in all languages, throughout the world, for the full term of copyright, and the right to license others to do the same, effective when the Article is accepted for publication. This includes the right to enforce the rights granted hereunder against third parties.
With respect to Supplemental Materials that I wish to make accessible either through a link in the Article or on a site or through a service of the Copyright Owner, the Copyright Owner shall be entitled to publish, post, reformat, index, archive, make available and link to such Supplemental Materials on a non-exclusive basis in all forms and media (whether now known or later developed), and to permit others to do so. “Supplemental Materials” shall mean additional materials that are not an intrinsic part of the Article, including but not limited to experimental data, e-components, encodings and software, and enhanced graphical, illustrative, video and audio material.
Reversion of rights
Articles may sometimes be accepted for publication but later rejected in the publication process, even in some cases after public posting in “Articles in Press” form, in which case all rights will revert to the author Revisions and addenda
I understand that no revisions, additional terms or addenda to this Journal Publishing Agreement can be accepted without the Copyright Owner’s express written consent. I understand that this Journal Publishing Agreement supersedes any previous agreements I have entered into with the Copyright Owner in relation to the Article from the date hereof.
(Author Rights for Scholarly Purposes (see ‘Definitions’ clause below

The Author Rights include the right to use the Preprint, Accepted Manuscript and the Published Journal Article for Personal Use, Internal Institutional Use and for Scholarly Sharing.
In the case of the Accepted Manuscript and the Published Journal Article the Author Rights exclude Commercial Use (unless expressly agreed in writing by the Copyright Owner), other than use by the author in a subsequent compilation of the author’s works or to extend the Article to book length form or re-use by the author of portions or excerpts in other works (with full acknowledgment of the original publication of the Article
