LawArXiv One Year Anniversary Report

It hardly seems like it's been over a year since we posted about the launch of LawArXiv. LawArXiv now houses nearly 700 open access legal articles. The organization has published a One Year Anniversary Report.

Some of the highlights from the report:

  • 89% of the submissions to the repository are from Cornell, one of the developers of the platform
  • The majority of the submissions deal with intellectual property law
  • A process for batch uploading of articles was developed in April 2018

Goals for the coming year included:

  • Adding the ability for institutions to use their branding on their submissions
  • Setting up subject-based email alerts
  • Adding a data field for the institution of the article author
