Copyright and License Policy

Lex Humana adopts a Creative Commons license (CC BY-NC-ND). CC BY-NC-ND is a Creative Commons license that stands for "Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives," meaning that the work can be freely shared and used as long as proper attribution is given to the original author, it is not used for commercial purposes, and no changes are made to the original work. By publishing under a Creative Commons license, authors are able to make their work freely available to a wider audience while still retaining control over how it is used. Lex Humana thus adheres to the definition of Open Access proposed by DOAJ and Bethesda Declaration on Open Access Publishing.
