Copyright Policy

Reformed Center for Religion (RCRS) Copyright Ownership is the formal policy of RCRS to own the copyrights to all copyrightable material in its technical publications and to the individual contributions contained therein, in order to protect the interests of the RCRS, its authors, and, at the same time, to facilitate the appropriate re-use of this material by others. RCRS distributes its technical publications throughout the world and does so by various means such as hard copy and electronic media. It also abstracts and may translate its publications, and articles contained therein, for inclusion in various compendiums, collective works, databases and similar publications.

Authors are permitted to re-use all or portions of the article in other works, but this does not include granting third-party requests for reprinting, republishing, or other types of re-use. Requests for all uses not included above, including the authorization of third parties to reproduce or otherwise use all or part of the article (including figures and tables), should be referred to RCRS.

Every accepted manuscript should be accompanied by "Copyright Transfer Agreement" prior to the article publication. Authors will be asked to transfer copyright of the article to the RCRS (or grant the RCRS exclusive publication and dissemination rights). This will ensure the widest possible protection and dissemination of information under  Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License CC BY-NC 4.0.
