Hevsel Times
Hevsel Times is a collaborative movement fueled by science that was born from socioeconomic and historical patterns.

Copyright Policy

       For Hevsel Times to publish and disseminate articles, we need certain publishing rights from authors, which are determined by a publishing agreement between the author and Hevsel Times. Our copyright policy is adapted directly from Elsevier’s copyright agreement and the University of Michigan’s sample author-keeps-copyright license. The parties, for valuable consideration, agree as follows.


       Permission to make digital or hard copies of part or all of Hevsel Times publications for personal or classroom use is granted without fee provided that copies are not distributed for profit or direct commercial advantage and that copies show this notice on the first page or initial screen of a display along with the full citation, including the name of the author. Copyrights for components of this work owned by others than Hevsel Times must be honored. Abstracting with credit is permitted.


       The author has the right to republish, post on servers, redistribute to lists, and use any component of this work in other works. For others to do so requires prior specific permission and/or a fee. Permissions may be requested from the Hevsel Times Office.


       To publish, distribute, and promote articles, authors agree to grant and warranty some rights enlisted in our author-retained copyright agreement. As articles are published open access, authors license exclusive rights in their article to Hevsel Times. Our copyright agreement policy shows the parties' entire understanding, so it may be amended only in writing by an addendum signed by the parties. Hevsel Times is committed to protecting and defending authors’ works and their reputations. We take allegations of infringement, plagiarism, ethical disputes, and fraud very seriously.
