Preservation Policy 

RITHA Publishing through its Online RITHA Library services commits to preserving the intellectual content of editorial projects (Journals, Books, Books Series) in perpetuity, according to current digital preservation best practices. 

Digital preservation has been most successful for content delivered in different widely-used formats. We have every reason to believe this will continue to be true into the future. 

RITHA Publishing House commits to preserving through Online RITHA Library services a usable version of all editorial projects. For projects with highly customised interactive presentations, the preservation strategy may include a combination of approaches, including the preservation of a simplified version of the publication alongside the underlying, raw machine - readable code for the complete project. This ensures that future users, in a different computing environment, will still have the necessary source material to recreate the full interactive expression of the content through software emulation, and future tools that operate in similar capacities. 

Open Access Policy 

RITHA Publishing House publishes open access content, and hybrid open access. 

Our books and monographs are typically published under policies of hybrid open access, situation in which subscription fee for individuals is affordable and for institutional subscription should be negotiate. Sometimes, in some required situations a Creative Commons (CC) license chosen by the author(s) or editor(s) of the given work as founding body requirements, could be applied. 

Our Journals are open access which means that users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access, which is fully compatible with many funder mandates and allows the official published version of the article, to be archived and distributed with no embargo, under a Creative Commons licence.
