The policy of licensing publications is aimed at providing the widest possible access to the works presented in the journal to all interested persons, as well as the fullest possible involvement of the results presented in the journal in research activities. The achievement of the set objectives shall be best achieved with the use of the open access mode to the Journal and to the articles presented in it.
At present, various modes of open access to materials have been distributed and codified. The Geocontext almanac uses the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International license (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0). Use of this license guarantees open distribution and copying of materials and at the same time excludes their use for commercial purposes. The copyright is kept by the journal.

The licensing mode may be modified by the Geocontext almanac in the future according to the wishes of authors and readers. However, the Editorial Board assumes strict observance of the principle of open access to the materials of the GeoContext almanac in the future.
