Open Access in Law – Structural Change to a Participatory quality-assured Publication Culture
Prof. Dr. Johanna Wolff, Freie Universität Berlin, Prof. Dr. Christoph Möllers, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Open access publications only play a subordinate role in law. However, they are already benefiting from a public discourse initiated in particular by legal science blogs. The research project takes a legal sociological approach and examines the existing attitudes and the cultural barriers for open and interdisciplinary law with regard to open access. Building on this, the aim is to develop intra- and interdisciplinary approaches such as guidelines and procedural rules as framework conditions for a participative, quality-assured publication culture.
