Data sharing and availability

By publishing in this journal, authors consent to the following conditions:

Authors keep the copyright and give the journal the right of first publication, which lets other people share the work as long as they give credit to the authors and say that it was first published in this journal.

Individual authors can make separate, extra contracts that allow the published form of their work to be shared with others (for example, by putting it in an institutional repository or writing a book), as long as they give credit to the journal that first published it.

Authors are allowed and encouraged to publish their work on the internet, such as in institutional repositories or on their own websites, before and throughout the submission process. This can result in beneficial discussions, as well as more and earlier citations of the published work (see to The Effect of Open Access).
