The "Refrigeration engineering and technology" (RET), the non-profit journal of the science family of ONAFT journals, recognizes the importance of openness in research as well as the increasingly global nature of the scientific enterprise. The broad public communication of peer-reviewed research, and information-sharing within the scientific community, are essential to advancing science in the service of society. This is why RET makes all of its peer-reviewed research content freely. As part of our mission, RET seeks to enhance communication among scientists, engineers, and the public, worldwide. Toward that end, RET does not require a copyright transfer from authors. Instead, authors are asked to grant RET an exclusive license agreement to publish their work.
Also RET journal Philosophy is based on Singapore Statement on Research Integrity and CSE’s White Paper on Promoting Integrity in Scientific Journal Publications.
