In response to the evolving nature of scholarly exchange and communications, the NEKTON: Jurnal Perikanan dan Ilmu Kelautan has established the following policy regarding authors’ deposit of their NEKTON journal contributions (including articles, reviews, notes, etc.) in their chosen/preferred repositories.


[These definitions are based on the SHERPA/RoMEO website].

This policy applies to pre-prints, post-prints, and the publisher’s version of the articles. A pre-print is a work-in-process: a contribution not yet accepted, or perhaps even submitted, to the journal, that prospective authors make available for comments and criticism from others. A post-print is the version of the author's contribution after peer review and acceptance for publication, with revisions made. The publisher’s version is the PDF file of the authors' contribution as it appears in the journal.


NEKTON: Jurnal Perikanan dan Ilmu Kelautan encourages authors to post preprints and post-prints of their contributions in temporary locations, such as personal websites, or other public repository servers until the publisher’s version is available. Authors may post publisher’s versions of their contributions to the repository of their home institution or other preferred repositories as soon as those versions are available. When posting a publisher’s version, authors must include the following notation: They were published as [provide the complete bibliographic citation as it appears in the print version of the NEKTON: Jurnal Perikanan dan Ilmu Kelautan] with the link to the article's URLs or DOI.
