The Oñati Socio-Legal Series [+] is a peer-reviewed, international online publication, with articles covering any aspects of socio-legal studies and sociology of law. It is available on the IISL website, and distributed through the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) [+] and indexed in Dialnet [+] and Directory of Open Access Journals [+], which ensures wide dissemination. A collection of papers from a workshop, if approved for publication in the OSLS, is presented as a separate issue of the Series, with its own title. The editor(s) of each collection of workshop papers will be the issue editor(s). Papers are peer-reviewed by two referees: one nominated by the Issue Editor; and the other by the Scientific Director. Papers may be in any language, usually English or Spanish, and would usually be up to 15,000 words in length.

We do not accept papers that have been previously published, or have been simultaneously submitted to another publisher. However, authors are free to republish the work or revised versions. Authors retain copyright, and the IISL only retains a non-exclusive right to communicate the paper to the public, normally on the terms of a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial No-Derivatives licence. For further details see http://creativecommons.org/about/licenses/. Many journals now permit prior publication of a pre-print; individual publisher and journal policies can be checked on the following website http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/. The IISL also asks that any later publication should include the normal acknowledgement that the paper was given at an Oñati Workshop, with a link to the Oñati Socio-Legal Series.
A paper cannot be both published online and included in a book proposal. However, it is possible for some papers to be included in a book proposal with others from the same workshop submitted to the Oñati Socio-Legal Series [+] provided they are of publishable quality. Single papers can also be submitted for publication in the Series.
