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.
