        You can act under the following terms:
– you must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made.  You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or our use.
– if you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.

3.  The licensor cannot revoke these freedoms as long as you follow the license terms.

With such terms, the authors retain the ownership of copyright on the published material and the public is allowed to reuse the content of the article without asking permission from the authors or publisher, as long as the original work is properly cited – the name of the author (co-authors) and the title of the MMJ, volume, number, year and pages are mentioned.
