Article 11 of the Polish Act of 4 February 1994 on copyright and authors' related rights (i.e. JoL 2019, item 1231) grants the publisher copyright to the collective work (including periodical publication) and the creators - to components of independent meaning. Regardless of the fact that the content of collective collections usually includes many authors, the publisher is an initiator of their creation. Therefore, the Act granted the publisher copyright to the entirety of such work as such, i.e. the right to decide on the methods of exploitation and receive remuneration. The authors have the right to individual parts of a collective work, individual works, unless they transfered them to the publisher.
Individual articles with a set of metadata are made available on the platform only if the authors have agreed to use the work (scientific publication) in this field of exploitation. Recognizing the social benefits of open, free access to legal publications, the Institute of Law Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences, as the publisher of the "Archives of Criminology" ("Archiwum Kryminologii"), realising its statutory rights, was decided to publish the entire volumes of the journal.
Authors of articles published in the older issues of "Archives of Criminology", which was interested in providing access to publications in an open manner, are asked to contact the Publisher regarding the conclusion of the license agreement.
