Asian Journal of Advances in Basic and Applied Science follows HYBRID OPEN ACCESS PUBLICATION MODEL.
In the hybrid open access publication model, authors of accepted articles are given with the choice for publication of their article- to pay a publication charge to make their article open access OR not to pay the publication charge but the publisher retains the right to imposes embargo period for making the article open access.
An embargo is a period during which the author may not make the final published version of their work public in any way, such as submitting it to an institutional or governmental repository or posting to a personal website. The Embargo period is calculated from the date the article has appeared on the journal website. However, posting of the author’s final version is not embargoed. Once the embargo period completes, the article will be made open access.

- After the embargo period, the authors can post their article on own website or institution’s author repository, as long as they don’t offer it for sale or commercial distribution. Such requests should be directed to the publisher.
The embargo period of Asian Journal of Advances in Basic and Applied Science is 12 months.
