Publication Policies

Business Model

We follow the Gold Open Access way in journal publishing. Our revenue is mainly from the author fees.

Copyright Policy

Copyrights of all articles published in Redfame journals are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work.

All articles are published under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license.

Authors have the rights to reuse, republish, archive, and distribute their own articles after publication, and undertake to permit others to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon this work non-commercially provided the original work is properly cited. The full guidance that applies to the CC-BY license can be found at

Deposit Policy / Archiving Policy

We follow Sherpa/Romeo‘s green archiving policy. Both pre-print and post-print or publisher’s version/PDF can be archived, without restrictions.

Advertising Policy

We do not publish any commercial advertisements for revenue. However, we may publish the valuable academic information free of charge.

Marketing Policy

Any direct marketing activities, including solicitation of manuscripts that are conducted on behalf of the publisher and journal, shall be appropriate, well targeted, and unobtrusive. Information provided about the publisher or journal is expected to be truthful and not misleading for readers or authors.

Open Access Policy

We follow the Gold Open Access way in journal publishing: Authors publish in Redfame journals that provide immediate open access to all of their articles on the publisher’s website.

The Open Access Publishing refers to the free availability of peer-reviewed papers on the worldwide internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full manuscripts. However, you must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license (Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License.), and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.

The Open Access Policy grants Redfame Publishing the right to license articles for free use. Alternatively, the authors (or their institution or funding agency) pay an article processing charge to finance the operation of the journals.

Submission Policy

All manuscripts should be written in English and prepared according to the Author Guide.

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the authorities responsible where the work was carried out. However, we accept submissions that have previously appeared on preprint servers (for example: arXiv, bioRxiv, Nature Precedings, Philica, Social Science Research Network, and Vixra); have previously been presented at conferences; or have previously appeared in other “non-journal” venues (for example: blogs or posters). Authors are responsible for updating the archived preprint with the journal reference (including DOI) and a link to the published articles on the appropriate journal website upon publication.

Any manuscripts out of the journal’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, are rejected. All submissions will be checked by iThenticate before being sent to reviewers.

Waiver Policy

As an Open Access publisher, Redfame Publishing charges an article processing charge to cover the publication costs. Please find the details HERE.

The waiver policy is only available to the journal reviewers and editorial board members, so long as they performed the assigned review task punctually and seriously. We do not waive or reduce APCs in any other cases.

Refund Policy

We implement a reasonable refund policy based on the publishing status.
– Fully refund: online version is unpublished
– Half refund: online version is published and print version is unpublished
– No refund: both the online and print version are published

AI Usage Policy

Content Review & Editing: All content generated with AI tools must undergo thorough author review and editing to ensure quality, accuracy.

AI Role Specification: Authors should clearly specify the tasks performed by AI tools and their impact on the research and writing process. This includes detailing where and how AI was utilized in the creation of the manuscript.

Authorship Integrity: Authors are responsible for all content, including AI-generated sections, and should not attribute authorship to AI tools. AI tools should not be listed as co-authors or contributors.

Data Analysis Transparency: If AI is used for data analysis or chart generation, authors must declare its usage and explain the methodology employed.
