Econstor provides permanent, safe and citable archiving for the publications of (mainly) German research institutions and individual researchers and making them available to the public. It also ensures optimal dissemination of the documents through various databases and portals such as RePEc, Economists Online, EconBiz and Google Scholar. Publishing as well as downloading documents on EconStor is free of charge. The ZBW acts as a national library for economics in Germany and thus guarantees long-term free availability and stable linking.
In the Econstor blog we are focussing not only on news about our publication server, but also on the topics Open Access and Scholarly Communication in Economics in general.
