Re-publication vs. Mirroring

Being freely accessible on the Internet does not imply an automatic right to re-publish/re-package TMRF publications (or parts of them) without authorization. Normally, only the authorized person has the right to re-publish their regular issues/special issues/chapters/e-Book elsewhere, e.g. with a publisher or via a Web site. When authorized person decides to re-publish their TMRF publication (or part of it) elsewhere, he/she should make sure that the re-published version is clearly distinguishable from the TMRF version. In particular, it may not use the following attributes characteristic to tmrfindia.org:

the TMRF volume numbering
the label TMRF as part of the URL to the online location of the publication
the ISSN number of the publication
the TMRF logo
the standard phrase for the copyright indication
the TMRF publication style

Sometimes special issue editors of our journals distribute printed versions of their proceedings volumes in parallel to the online version at tmrfindia.org. This is fine with us as long as you (the proceedings guest editors) clearly distinguish it from the online version like indicated above for the case of re-publications.

You must include a phrase like
"First appeared online with TMRF ( “Publication Name” , ISSN)" on one of the introductory pages of your printed proceedings volume.
Commercial and non-commercial publishers interested in re-publishing complete proceedings volumes, e-books or individual chapters/papers are advised to negotiate terms with the authorized person of the respective TMRF publication.
We forbid mirroring of the tmrfindia.org web site or its parts. Mirroring is different from re-publication since it publishes a one-to-one copy via another Web site. A mirror would negatively affect the authenticity of tmrfindia.org. Finally, why would someone want to have a mirror of something that is freely accessible anyway?
