Author Self-Archiving

In Journal of Medical Science (JMS), authors keep the copyright of their material and are allowed to self-archive their work as HTML or Word file in institutional repositories and on the web, or to republish it for example as a book chapter (note that publication in another scholarly journal - while possible from a copyright point of view - is generally considered duplicate publication and scientific misconduct).

In all cases of republication or self-archiving, the original source (citation) should be provided, including the link to the original JMS article on, and a note should be included that the work is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution License CC-BY 4.0.
