The Institute provides an important site for publication of innovative law and society research. Our workshops offer a very good basis for developing high quality publications, which we are happy to support.
On the one hand, we publish two double-blind peer-reviewed online journals: Oñati Socio-legal Series (included in the Web of Science ESCI and Elsevier Scopus indices), which includes individual submissions, as well as articles resulting from our workshop programme, and Sortuz: Oñati Journal of Emergent Socio-Legal Studies, devoted to strengthening the emerging community around the relations between law and society through the publication of quality research.
A distinctive sign of Oñati Socio-Legal Series is that it lies on a universal principle of Full APC (Article Publication Charges) Waiver. This is a consequence of its belonging to the Oñati IISL, a non-profit Foundation. Application of this fee waiver shall be understood as an in-kind contribution to global socio-legal scholarship, and a real commitment to open access to knowledge. The APC Waiver means that the IISL's regular annual budget and staff provides the same world-quality services that other Gold Open Access journal, of equivalent quality and global outreach, indexed in Web of Science, charged with an APC of an average amount which exceeds 2500 US$ per article (2020 data).

OSLS welcomes proposals for special issues all year long. For the guidelines on how to submit such a proposal, please click here.
For its part, Sortuz seeks to create a virtual, but real space, that strengthens the emerging community around the relations between law and society through the publication of quality research. Indeed, the community of emergent scholars that year by year meet, discuss and grow in IISL facilities and in its virtual spaces, especially on the IISL's International Master's Programme, may find in this journal an additional chance to publish their first research articles.

On the other hand, we publish two book series: one in English, Oñati International Series in Law and Society, which is published by Bloomsbury-Hart, and the other in Spanish, Colección Oñati: Derecho y Sociedad, published by Dykinson.
