About the Journal

Archives is an open access, collaborative data-sharing journal, meaning that authors will receive maximum exposure for their published work.

Authors of accepted manuscripts are required to submit their dataset before publication — the datasets are securely stored at the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), the world's largest social science data archive.

Datasets are also assigned their own DOIs, meaning that authors have the opportunity to make their data citable by publishing in Archives.

Alternative accessible data-storage facilities are acceptable as well.

Please review the full journal policy on data-sharing, found in the Manuscript Submission area on the journal's homepage.
