The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors’ control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited. However, the print version may need payment as dictated by the publisher.

Archiving and repository policy: All papers published in the journal are maintained and permanently accessible. A complete archival copy of each article is stored in electronic format in PKP Preservation Network (PKP PN). It is done in an automated process in every time when a new article has been published.
Authors are permitted to self-archive their articles on their personal website and/or in their funder's or institutional or in other open access repositories after the article has been published or the submitted article into this journal after, or even before, it has been accepted for publication without embargo. These practices benefit authors with productive exchanges as well as earlier and greater citation of published work. Authors should cite the publication reference and DOI number on the first page of any deposited version and provide a link from it to the URL of the published article on the journal's website.
Revenue policy: The journal is fully financed by the publisher i.e., Haematology Society of Bangladesh. The publisher may decide for advertisement in the journal, both in the print and online version, and can set a price for the printed version only, as a part of the recovery of the publishing and maintenance cost. A single page advertisement can be published in the inner back page of the print version according to the BMDC guideline, and the advertisement can be displayed in the home page of the online version. The advertisers are the manufacturers and suppliers of drugs and equipment related to haematology service and the contents of the adverts are chosen by them. However, as the publisher’s body is separate from the editorial team, the revenue policy doesn’t affect the editorial decision making.
