Copyright aims to protect the specific way the article has been written to describe a scientific research in detail. It is claimed that this is necessary in order to protect author’s rights, and to regulate permissions for reprints or other use of the published research. EJEAS have a copyright form which is required authors to sign over all of the rights when their article is ready for publication. All site content, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Common Attribution License. (CC-BY-NC 4.0)
