International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy

This week (October 24-30) is International Open Access Week #OpenForClimateJustice

So what is open access?

Open access (OA) is a set of principles and a range of practices through which research outputs are distributed online, free of cost or other access barriers.  Through licensing via an open license (usually a Creative Commons License), freely available outputs can also be legally shared and reused. Hence, open access is more than just free access.

QUT supports the publication of five open access journals including the International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy, in the School of Justice.  Content is published under a Creative Commons Attribution Licence and there are no article processing charges (APCs) to be paid by authors. These journals are published with the support of QUT Library using the Open Journals System (OJS) software.

This year the theme of Open Access Week is Open for Climate Justice which seeks to encourage connection and collaboration among the climate movement and the international open community.
