Open Access Policy

Sophia Journal is a fully open access journal, allowing for immediate and free access to its content.

We share the beliefs expressed in the Declaration of the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI) that by removing access barriers to academic journals such as Sophia will accelerate research, enrich education, share the learning of the rich with the poor and the poor with the rich, make this literature as useful as it can be, and lay the foundation for uniting humanity in a common intellectual conversation and quest for knowledge.
