SSOAR collects electronic full texts from the domain of the Social Sciences and makes these texts available according to the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Scientific Knowledge.

To offer a broad scope of relevant literature SSOAR has adopted different strategies of acquisition. Besides scientists who self-archive their full texts SSOAR wins large quantities of content through co-operation with institutes, scientific associations, publishers and editors.  

SSOAR mainly pursues the Green Way of Open Access and understands itself as secondary publisher of reviewed literature.

The repository has been certified by DINI, the German Initiative for Networked Information (DINI certificate 2007). The DINI certificate confirms our compliance with formal and technical standards and quality criteria for open-access repositories.
