The copyright of all published articles is retained by the author. The journal retains a “fair use” agreement to edit and format to the journal specifications, and reproduce the author’s work in any media that the journal may publish in the future. The author is also free to republish the original manuscript in other journals once the work is published.

The NOUN Scholar supports and encourages Open Access and fee-free publication models, and provides access to a wide range of free resources to assist African researchers, authors and editors. The journal licenses the non-exclusive right to publish the article, which means that the author can re-authorize its publication in other formats (such as in edited monographs). In this scenario, the author will often license the right of first publication to the journal/publisher.
