Article Sharing

Athena International Publishing believes that scholarly research is by its nature collaborative and that sharing of information is a crucial factor for advancing human knowledge and understanding. The ways by which scholarly information is delivered and consumed is rapidly evolving. As the use of sharing networks grows, the ambiguity over how to access, share and use articles on platforms and tools like scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs) has become apparent. The STM Association has established a core set of principles that clarify how, where and what content should be shared using SCNs and websites, and to improve this experience for all. These Voluntary Principles for Article Sharing on Scholarly Collaboration Networks aim to allow publishers and scholarly collaboration networks to work together to facilitate sharing, which benefits researchers, institutions, and society as a whole. Athena International Publishing endorses these principles which form the basis of the article sharing policy below.
