Open Access Policy
The Moldovan Medical Journal supports the Open Access policy. There are no fees to access the published articles. The MMJ provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. In the Republic of Moldova, the State policy in the field of sciences is based on the Code on Science and Innovation, adopted in July 15, 2004 (Law No 259-XV), which provides the guaranteed access to scientific information (usch.md/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Codul-ştiinţei-şi-inovării.pdf). The Moldovan Medical Journal releases its articles under the terms of Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY-SA 4.0) that permits use, distribution, reproduction and adaptations in any medium as long as others share alike and the original work is properly cited. Authors are 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 MMJ we suggest to link to the final article version published in the Journal, using the assigned article DOI (Digital Object Identifier). Authors can archive pre-print (i.e. pre-refereeing), post-print (i.e. final draft post-refereeing) and publisher’s PDF version.
