Worldwide Waste is published on a Subscribe to Open basis.
- In any year where the journal is published open access, contributors will retain copyright in their work and will allow it to be published by White Horse Press under a CC BY 4.0 license. In any future year where the journal is published not on an open access basis, contributors will be expected to assign copyright to Worldwide Waste; though they remain free to use material in subsequent publications written or edited by themselves, provided Worldwide Waste is acknowledged as the original place of publication.
- All articles published in the journal made immediately available worldwide on this site. For open access articles, there is no restriction on who may access or share the articles. Other articles remain gated.
Publishing new articles in Worldwide Waste via the Subscribe to Open model means:
- All articles published in any given year will be libre open access if and only if the journal meets its subscription revenue threshold for that year. If the journal fails to meet uits revenue threshold, content for that year will remain paywalled.
- free and unlimited access to the full-text of all articles published in S2O open access volumes of Worldwide Waste is available to anyone.
- provided proper accreditation/citation, everyone is free to re-use published material that is marked Open Access.
- peer-reviewed literature is freely available without charge or subscription.
- literature is immediately available in open access format (without any embargo period).
- provided a full and correct citation to the original publication is given, works published on an open access basis can be re-used without obtaining permission.
- Full unrestricted copyright is held by the author(s) for new works published open access.
- Authors retain full unrestricted publication rights for new works published open access.
- There are no submission or article processing fees.

In any future year where the journal is published not on an open access basis, articles may not be reproduced, whether in part or in full, without a written authorisation from the publishers. See the White Horse Press website for further information: https://www.whpress.co.uk/publications/permissions-and-copyright/
- On publication, contributors will be sent a pdf file of their article, from which they are free to print as many further copies as they require for personal use. If published Open Access, but not otherwise, they may post the version of record online.
Prior Publication and Third Party Material
- Articles must be original and must not have been published elsewhere, in part or in full.
- Authors, when quoting from someone else's work or when considering reproducing an illustration or table from a book or journal article, should make sure that they are not infringing a copyright. More details.
- Although in general authors may quote from other published works, they should obtain permission from the holder of the copyright if they wish to quote substantial extracts or reproduce tables, plates or other illustrations. If the copyright-holder is not the author of the quoted or reproduced material, it is recommended that thepermission of the author also be sought.
- Since Worldwide Waste is a Subscribe to Open publication with the goal of publishing all new content on a libre open access basis, all copyright clearances and other permission requests should clearly specify that the work will be re-printed on an Open Access basis under CC BY 4.0. If the person or company whose material you wish to reproduce cannot or will not authorise this type of usage, then you may need to select some other material to support your article, instead.
- Material in unpublished letters and manuscripts is also protected and must not be published unless permission has been obtained.
- A suitable acknowledgment of any borrowed material must always be made.
- The team at The White Horse Press can advise about copyright clearance and permission issues, but it is generally the author's responsibility to seek and secure appropriate permissions, and any costs for copyright clearance generally fall to the author.
