Under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License (CC BY 4.0), all papers published by Pivot journals are made freely available online and can be easily accessed by readers without any financial or copyright barriers. Authors and audiences can distribute the papers via their social channels without any constraints as long as the original work is appropriately credited. Editors will also promote the papers via multiple media, and most importantly, archive the papers in indexing databases.
We adopt single-blind peer review. Manuscripts are reviewed thoroughly, and independently, by at least two reviewers from the same research field as the author. The publisher encourages the reviewers to make constructive comments and criticisms which will be useful not only for the purpose of the author's revision of the manuscript, but also for their future research.
All articles published by the journals in this platform will be archived in CLOCKSS so as to provide permanent digital preservation and open access. CLOCKSS secures the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly content in its original format without the risk of loss or destruction due to technological, economic, environmental or political reasons.
In 2021-2022, papers accepted for publication in Pivot journals will be published without Article Processing Charges (APCs). For more information, please refer to Fees.
