  3. Accessibility: IJOHMN promotes open access to scholarly research, enabling readers and users to access, download, and share articles freely. This accessibility facilitates the dissemination of knowledge and supports academic and non-academic communities.
  4. Proper Attribution: Users are required to provide proper attribution when using IJOHMN content, including author names, article titles, journal name (International Journal Online of Humanities), volume/issue numbers (if applicable), year of publication, and DOI.
  5. No Additional Restrictions: Users may not impose any additional legal or technological restrictions on IJOHMN content beyond those specified by the CC-BY 4.0 license.
  6. Non-Endorsement: The use of content from IJOHMN does not imply endorsement by the journal or its editorial team of the user's specific application or use of the material.
  7. Archiving and Preservation: IJOHMN supports the digital archiving and preservation of its content. We encourage repositories and libraries to preserve and disseminate articles in their collections, contributing to the long-term availability of research.


IJOHMN is preserving published manuscripts with PKP PN ensuring that the content will be secure and available into the future. PKP has developed the PKP Preservation Network (PKP PN) to digitally preserve OJS journals.


  1. Copyright Holder Information: Starting from January 2023, the copyright holder's name is included in both the PDF and HTML versions of the article to ensure copyright information is readily accessible in all formats for the convenience of readers and users. Previously, the copyright holder's name was mentioned in HTML only.

Authors, readers, and users of IJOHMN content are expected to respect the CC-BY license, provide proper attribution, and adhere to ethical guidelines for academic and research integrity. Our commitment to these principles underscores our dedication to advancing open access principles.
