Online Express

Our publisher offers an Open Express feature: it is possible to publish contributions as Open Access papers simultaneously to the print and online versions and provide them to the readers online free of charge. For this service, the publisher charges the authors, who wish to make use of this option, a non-recurring fee of 199 Euro (VAT included) for each paper.


The  Journal’s full texts are being conveyed to the Social Science Open Access Repository (SSOAR) by the publisher, allowing for full-text search and downloading, once the moving wall is adjusted 24 months after initial publication. This full-text server is maintained by GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences.
