Scientific discourse and authors rights
S2n Papers follow the policy of sharing the idea for free and prizing the possession.
This is a consequence of accepting the the author(s) rights and a scientific discourse!
To achieve this on S2n all papers are readable with the free version of CopySafePDF Reader. Other readers have problems with their security functions. This software can be downloaded and used for free here: CopySafePDF – Reader. Read further information to CopySafePDF here. (note: as long as CopySafePDF is opened your clipboard is disabled).
Publications can also be downloaded at CopySave eBook Store (Category ‘Science’).
You can order a hardcopy of the publication (including shipping costs).
S2n Papers are hosted readable for everybody. Printing is not possible – so everybody who wants to possess the idea has to pay for the hardcopy.
