Copyright Policies

Intellectual property, in particular copyright (rights in editorial content), trademarks (rights in brands for services or journals), and database rights (rights in compilations of information), form the journal’s publishing services and communications businesses. We in Jökull embrace the opportunities the digital environment offers for communication and access, while at the same time we recognize the new risks that this environment poses, that being the ease with which unauthorized copies can be made and distributed worldwide. However, submission of an article to Jökull implies that the work has not been published previously (except as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere and its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in any language, without the written consent of the Publisher. Herein, authors are required to obtain written copyright permission from the journal to include their paper elsewhere.
