IMIENS is an Open Access Journal which presents its content freely for online researches with the aim of contributing to the global exchange of knowledge. IMIENS believes that providing free online access ensures a wider spectrum of research base and reading rate to develop the related literature.
Open Access (OA) provides unlimited access and reuse opportunities which make research publications freely available online. The open access therefore creates the network for reaching the widest possible audience, sharing the entire works and building upon them. The main goal of IMIENS is to contribute the culture of scientific publications in the fields of Intelligent Methods.
Besides regarding that our publisher group IMIENS is included in BOAI (Budapest Open Access Initiative), IMIENS also supports the definition of ''Open Access'' according to BOAI which is:
Its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these 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. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.
