Global Perspectives on Legal History now available through OAPEN and DOAB
Our Open Access publications series Global Perspectives on Legal History can now be accessed via the OAPEN Library and DOAB.
The OAPEN (Open Access Publishing in European Networks) Library is an online repository and publishing platform for books in the humanities and social sciences. Every year, around one million items are downloaded by users in ca. 200 countries. The OAPEN Library includes only peer-reviewed items offered open access by publishers. Users can either view the full text online or download it in PDF format.
The Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) includes open access academic titles from all disciplines that are available either for download directly through the DOAB or on the publishers’ websites. The DOAB currently lists 600 items on law and 2000 items on history. As with the OAPEN library, all the items available through DOAB have undergone peer review.
Both platforms aim to increase the visibility and discoverability of high-quality open access publications in order to increase the significance of open access publications in the international publishing landscape. Both websites are available to individual users in full and without prior registration. The metadata on each item in the DOAB can also be downloaded by libraries for inclusion in their own catalogues and are accessible via search engines.
