RIGHTS AND COPYRIGHTS

Assign copyright, or license publication right

We prefer authors to assign copyright to Rhema Consulting Group LLC, New York, the journal proprietor & IABCTF an International Faculty Network on whose behalf we publish, but accept that authors may prefer to give Rhema Consulting Group LLC an exclusive license to publish. Copyright assignment has the advantage of elimination of ambiguity, for example in negotiating subsidiary licenses (for instance with database aggregators) or in dealing on an Author's behalf with plagiarism, abuse of moral rights, protecting intellectual property or copyright infringement.

It is important however that we are at least granted exclusive rights because of the needs of the scholarly community for certainty in the scientific record. There is a requirement for a clear and unambiguous record of the scholarly or scientific process, with validated authentication of the final version of an article which has been edited, peer-reviewed and accepted in a journal which confers a recognized, legitimate status on an article. For these reasons we need these rights to assure the scholarly community that they are reading the genuine, final version.
