Open Access Publishing

Students and early career researchers might struggle to find suitable publication channels for their work, where they can reach a large audience. Same could be said for researchers more generally. As there is a strong movement for open access publishing and open science, the following two limited and surely non-exhaustive lists include several relevant journals in the field of human rights and international law. If you have suggestions about journals that should be added to these lists, please contact us.

Student-Led Open Access Law Journals

Student-run law journals offer students and scholars the opportunity to publish their legal research and scholarship at any phase of their academic career, as first-time or experienced authors. Each journal is managed by students at an esteemed university and publishes the legal scholarship of undergraduate and postgraduate students. The journals are open access, peer reviewed, and have no article processing charges (APC).

This list comprises a selection of high-quality open access journals in the field of human rights and international and European law. Each journal is affiliated with or published by a university and follows a rigorous peer review process.
