Archiving and repository policy

Archiving policy

Advances in Education Sciences (AESJ) uses as long-term preservation service, where each journal is currently archived - Open Journal Systems.        

Open Journal Systems (OJS) is an open-source software application for managing and publishing scholarly journals. Originally developed and released by PKP in 2001 to improve access to research, it is the most widely used open-source journal publishing platform in existence, with over 30,000 journals using it worldwide (    

Repository policy

AESJ policy for repository of the authors’ work of their own choice. AESJ  allows authors to deposit versions of their work in an institutional or other repository of their choice. All the papers published in AESJ are indexed in Zenodo open repository. Zenodo is a general-purpose open repository developed under the European OpenAIRE program and operated by CERN. It allows researchers to deposit research papers, data sets, research software, reports, and any other research related digital artefacts. The papers can be accessed using this link.

AESJ  allows authors to deposit Published version (Version of Record) of their paper in an institutional or other repository of their choice (e.g., Google Scholar,, ResearchGate). The author is allowed to use and reposit its own published work, by downloading it from the journal website; no modifications such as article’s reformatting or repaginating are allowed. 

 In addition, AESJ  provides repository within the Open Journal Systems (OJS) open-source software application of the AESJ  journals, for the following versions:

  • Submitted version – reposited in OJS, but not publicly available
  • Accepted version (Author Accepted Manuscript) – reposited in OJS, but not publicly available
  • Published version (Version of Record) – reposited in OJS, and publicly available – open access

Persistent identifiers policy

AESJ  uses persistent article identifiers for its journals. A persistent article identifier (PID) is used to find the article no matter where it is located. The most common type of PID is the digital object identifier (DOI).

AESJ uses DOIs for all its open access materials.

Furthermore, AESJ  allows for ORCID IDs to be present in article metadata, each author being able to introduce his/her own ORCID ID starting with the manuscript submission using the Open Journal System.
