NVS Open Access Policy

The priority of Neo-Victorian Studies (NVS) is to facilitate, disseminate, and promote scholarship on neo-Victorian literature, arts, and related cultural discourses to the widest possible global audience, so as to maximise impact. Hence we have opted for an open-access model of on-line publication, to pre-empt financial and institutional barriers to general access, as well as minimise the environmental impact associated with traditional paper-based publication.

Our open access policy is restricted to educational and non-commercial use in accordance with Creative Commons: Attribution Non-Commercial No Derivatives license. NVS website users are permitted to view/read, print, download, copy and distribute NVS articles, creative pieces, reviews, and announcements for personal and academic fair use (e.g. critical citation in scholarly articles, classroom reading and discussion, etc.), as long as they give proper credit to Neo-Victorian Studies and individual contributors (where applicable) as the original publishers/creators. However, any activity involving commercial use and profit (such as the subsequent sale of NVS material or its reproduction via subscription/fee charging websites and printed/on-line publications) is strictly prohibited without prior permission from the NVS editors.
