Publication Copyright and License

We believe that research results have to be openly available to the community so that they can be submitted to the test and scrutiny of other researchers.

This is why we share the same principles of the Plan S regarding Open Access, copyright, and license: Authors or their institutions retain copyright to their publications. All publications must be published under an open license, preferably the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC BY), in order to fulfil the requirements defined by the Berlin Declaration.

Orvium supports several Creative Commons copyright licenses for your work fully compatible with the Plan S strategy. In this guide you can a read a brief summary about the supported licenses in the platform. To know more about Creative Commons please check the official Creative Commons website.


This license lets others copy, modify, distribute and perform your work, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission.


This license lets others distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. This is the most accommodating of licenses offered. Recommended for maximum dissemination and use of licensed materials.


This license lets others reuse the work for any purpose, including commercially; however, it cannot be shared with others in adapted form, and credit must be provided to you.
