These are the categories of publisher that are relevant to 'Acta Mathematicae Applicatae Sinica'.
In general, the lowest category in the list below takes priority regarding copyright and policies. This is not clear and certain, however, for 'Client organisations' and 'Associate organisations'.
|Definition:||Society or organisation that assists a publishing house with editing and peer review, but which may not have copyright|
|Case/E.g.:||Publishing house declarations: 'Published in association with...', 'Edited by...'|
|Guidance:||Ownership of copyright by the associate organisation is possible, but less likely than for a client organisation.|
|Definition:||One of two or more publishers of any type who jointly publish a given journal.|
|Case/E.g.:||Evidence-Based Mental Health is copublished by the BMJ Publishing Group, the British Psychological Society, and the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
Publishing house declarations: 'Co-published by...', 'Published jointly by...', 'Copyright x and y'
|Guidance:||Often, the journal uses the policies of only one of the copublishers (see 'Primary Copublisher'). Where the situation is unclear, we try to display the more liberal policy. Firstly we select by RoMEO colour in the order Green, Blue, Yellow, and White. If necessary, we then use a weighted algorithm that tries to identify the policy that permits archiving of the most recent version of an article.|
