Open Access Policy

 JRE is a Platinum Open Access journal, which means JRE does not charge either the readers or the authors. This ensures all accepted articles will be immediately and permanently available to readers free of charge.

Publication infrastructure and maintenance of JRE is fully supported by James Cook University Open Journal Systems (OJS), driven by the belief that knowledge has the power to change lives, and that research outputs should be freely accessible online, without barriers. James Cook University is one of the world's leading institutions focusing on the tropics, located in tropical North Queensland, Australia.

JRE aims to make the academic research available:

  • online
  • immediately
  • without charge
  • free from most copyright or licensing restrictions
