Creative Commons is a set of exclusive rights for the publishers or creators of genuine and unique works that includes such rights as publishing, reproducing, and modeling of the work.
Copyright holders have the right to follow up the duplication and exploitation of their works for a certain time; in this regard, after the expiration of the specified period, their works fall into the public domain. Any use or exploitation of these works is restricted to obtaining the permission of the given publisher or author.
Most of our journals in Iran follow Open Access policies. These policies have their own advantages and disadvantages. One of the principles of Open Access is the use of a publication license called “Creative Commons License”. This license should be inserted at the bottom of the first page of the articles. This license is targeted toward the enhancement of access to new works for collaborative and constructive purposes.
This license was released by a U.S. non-profit organization, working under the same name, in December 2002, and is used mostly for articles and text documents.
