All of the journals published by Avestia are based on the Open Access (OA) model. Unlike traditional publishing, this model allows unrestricted and free access to the full content of the published articles, while publication costs are covered by the authors (or their respective institutes). Furthermore, permission is granted to the audience to distribute, copy, and use the material, given proper citations and referencing, while the copyright is retained by the authors.
In the OA model, every article is subject to peer-review by several experts in the field, and the overall publication process does not change with respect to traditional publishing methods.
At Avestia, we take matters that relate to ethics in publishing very seriously. We believe that the peer-review publication process is a vital building block of academia, and its integrity must be maintained at all costs.
All submitted manuscript will be peer-reviewed by several experts in the field. Upon acceptance, articles will be published in the latest open volume. One continuous volume per year is published.
The Avestia Manuscript Submission System (AMSS) is now live. Please note that this is a beta version of the submission system. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any problems with the system.
