Open Access Policy

Open access (Open Access) to scientific information is important to the Hugo Grotius gGmbH - non-profit society for the advancement of legal sciences. The open and immediate exchange of research results is the foundation of innovations. Hence, the Hugo Grotius Society provides open access to its publications according to the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities


To provide not only open access to scientific information, the Hugo Grotius Society decided in 2015 to publish all its publications under the Creative Commons license CC BY-SA 3.0 DE (Open Content).

This does go along with common standards and scientific quality as well as the Rules of Good Scientific Practice by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
