Once new knowledge is identified or discovered, it is pertinent that such knowledge is shared and made available in a way that it benefits the general public.

Consequently, the WAJP practices a publishing policy based on unrestricted access to information as defined in the 2003 Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities.

All research works published in the WAJP are fully open access. The published articles are immediately freely available after publication. Being fully open access, the author(s) and copyright holder(s) (where applicable) grant to all users a free irrevocable right of access to, and a license to copy, use, and distribute the work publicly.
