Open Access Statement
The NZMSJ is committed to increasing the reach and use of the articles we publish. Therefore, the NZMSJ is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or institution. The NZMSJ publishes under the Creative Commons Licence BY 4.0. This allows users to immediately read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose as long the original author as long as appropriate credit is given as stated in the CC-BY 4.0 licence from Creative Commons.
The NZMSJ does not consider articles which are simultaneously in submission with other journals, or have been published in full elsewhere. The journal will consider manuscripts which have been rejected by other journals, or have previously been published as provisional abstracts. Please note that publication of an article in the NZMSJ will likely preclude the work from also be published in other peer-reviewed journals.
