The Open Access Policy allows authors to make their writings openly accessible. The immediate online dissemination of scholary research results in growth of new knowledge and increased impact of research as articles available online are more often cited. For this reason, authors of scholary articles accepted for publication in the periodical “Rocznik Integracji Europejskiej” grant the publisher (Faculty of Political Science and Journalism, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań) an exclusive right to publish their articles in traditional printed form and in electronic form (via the Internet site of the journal; AMUR–Adam Mickiewicz University’s open access repository; Pressto open-access platform; and CEEOL database).

In case of co-authored articles, each joint author grants the publisher an exclusive right mentioned above.Consequently, articles provided to the “Rocznik Integracji Europejskiej” publisher will be stored, preserved, and made accessible in digital form.
Granting an exclusive right to publish articles in traditional printed form and in electronic form, guarantees that any restriction on dissemination are lifted and authors get recognition they deserve, as deposits are made as early as possible, no later than the date of formal publication.
