License Terms

The Darpan International Research Analysis (DIRA) adheres to the principles of Open Access publishing and employs the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial (CC BY-NC) license for all its published works. This licensing choice reflects our commitment to promoting free and unrestricted access to scholarly research while respecting the rights of authors and creators.

  1. Attribution (BY) : Users must give appropriate credit to the original author(s) and the DIRA, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. The attribution should not in any way suggest that the authors or the DIRA endorse the user or their use of the work.
  2. Non-Commercial (NC) : The work may not be used for commercial purposes. This means that users cannot sell the work or use it for commercial gain. The intent is to ensure that the work remains freely available for educational, research, and other non-commercial uses.
  3. Copyright Holder : The copyright of articles published in the DIRA is retained by the journal. Authors grant the DIRA a royalty-free license to publish, distribute, and display the article, while maintaining their rights to be recognized as the author.
  4. Reuse and Distribution : Under the CC BY-NC license, users are free to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work, as well as make derivative works based on it, as long as they comply with the terms of attribution and non-commercial use.
  5. Authorship Integrity : Authors who publish with the DIRA agree to respect the integrity of the original work and provide proper attribution to prior works if used.
  6. No Additional Restrictions : Users may not apply legal terms or technological measures that legally restrict others from doing anything the license permits.
  7. Responsibility of Users : While the CC BY-NC license facilitates the use of published work, users are responsible for ensuring that any further use of the work is in compliance with the license terms and any applicable laws.

This licensing framework is designed to maximize the reach and impact of the work published in the DIRA, fostering a spirit of open collaboration and knowledge.
