Center for Open Science Releases Another Branded Preprint Service With LawArXiv

“The Center for Open Science (COS) is pleased to announce that it has added another branded service to its open source preprints service, OSF Preprints. The new service, called LawArXiv,  provides free, open access, open source archives for legal research. LawArXiv is an open access legal repository supported and maintained by members of the scholarly legal community. The repository was developed by three non-profit membership organizations and an academic lead institution:

“LIPA, MALLCO, and NELLCO are excited to be collaborators on the LawArXiv project. Unfettered access to scholarship contributes to the greater pool of knowledge and promotes access to justice.” Margaret Maes, LIPA Executive Director. “Our partnership in the LawArxiv project is a reflection of Cornell Law School’s deep and enduring commitment to open access principles, and the availability of legal information to all.” Femi Cadmus, Edward Cornell Law Librarian. The Center for Open Science serves as the technology partner and hosts LawArXiv through the Open Science Framework. Administrative and leadership support is provided in partnership with the Cornell Law Library. LawArXiv is built on COS’s flagship platform, the Open Science Framework, which helps researchers design and manage their project workflow, data storage, DOIs, and collaboration. COS has leveraged that platform to help those researchers discover new research as it happens and to receive quick feedback on their own research prior to publication.”
