ICS Publications


The ICS provides unrestricted open access to the scientific research content of the publications for which it is responsible as an institution: the Institute’s journal, Análise Social, freely accessible since 2008, Policy briefs, ICS Working Papers, and ICS Studies and Reports. The Social Sciences Press (Imprensa de Ciências Sociais) has provided open access to its publications since May 2014 through the ULisboa Repository, once the initial 16-month post-publication embargo period has ended. Open access to the books in the Observatories collection in the ULisboa Repository is provided 6 months after publication, given their significant public policy orientation.
ICS researchers also have editorial roles in various open access journals.

 

Análise Social
