OJCAS is now included in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

This journal is 100% open access, which means that all content is freely available without charge to users or their institutions. All articles are published under a CC-BY 4.0 license, and the author retains copyright.

Open access is provided through the payment of an article-processing charge (APC) paid after acceptance. APCs are often financed by an author's institution or the funder supporting their research. Corresponding authors from low-income countries are eligible for waived or reduced APCs.
