Under the terms of Open Access license of the Moldovan Medical Journal, authors are entitle to deposit the final published version of the article in institutional and/or centrally organized repositories immediately upon publication, provided that the Moldovan Medical Journal is attributed as the original place of publication and that correct citation details are given. Authors are encouraged to deposit the URL of their published article in addition to the PDF version. Authors are also permitted and encouraged to post online a prepublication manuscript in institutional repositories or on their websites prior to and during the submission process, as it can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work. After a manuscript has been published in the Moldovan Medical Journal, we suggest to link to the final article version published in the Journal, using the assigned article DOI. Authors can archive pre-print (i. e. pre-refereeing), post-print (i. e. final draft post-refereeing) and publisher’s PDF version.
