 Open Access Policy

The journal “Studia z Polityki Publicznej/Public Policy Studies” provides access to the content of articles in the Open Access mode on the basis of the Creative Commons license Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0). Authors retain the copyright and publishing rights without restrictions.


Author Self-Archiving Policy:

This journal permits and encourages authors to post items submitted to the journal on personal websites or institutional repositories both prior to and after publication. In the case of sharing articles in versions before publication (e.g., typescript, a version without formatting employed by the editors, without editorial corrections, before reviews), it should be clearly indicated in the content of the shared article that this is a version before publication. While sharing their articles, authors are required to provide detailed bibliographic information, in particular (if possible), to credit the title of this journal.

We advise using any of the following academic social networks: ResearchGate,, and SSRN. We also advise using the institutional repositories such as Cyber Open Repository of the Warsaw School of Economics, Repository of Centre for Open Science, Social Science Open Access Repository, EconStor, and Munich Personal RePEc Archive.


Research Data Rules:

Manuscript authors are required to provide Research Data Availability Statements as long as the articles are based on studies involving datasets (see: the template for the article). The journal requires authors to provide information about readers’ access to the research data used. For example, the authors should inform about the availability of datasets in a public repository, using of existing publicly accessible datasets, restricted access to the datasets, data obtained from a third party, or availability of datasets on request.


Supplementary Materials P​olicy:

The journal recommends authors to self-share research data related to articles published in the journal with taking into account the requirements of other entities, including scientific publishers, grant agreements, employers, and codes of ethics related to scientific activity.

If needed, Supplementary Material should be uploaded online separately before the submission of the article manuscript to the journal. Authors can also deposit any additional data and/or graphic representations (e.g., figures and/or tables) as additional files in open repositories, such as Zenodo, FigShare, RepOD, or Polish Social Data Archive. This way, they can receive permanent data storage and DOI or another identifier for deposited data.

A list of data repositories is available in the Open Access Directory.

Please include adequate information about the stored Supplementary Material in the manuscript. For example:

“The supplementary data [generated/analyzed] for this [article/paper/study] can be found in the [name of repository]: [link]. [DOI or another identifier].”

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID):

What is ORCID?
ORCID is an independent non-profit organization that provides a persistent identifier – an ORCID ID – that distinguishes you from other researchers and a mechanism for linking your research outputs and activities to your ID. ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services. Learn more at​.

How and why we collect ORCID IDs?
This journal is collecting your ORCID ID so we can identify your publications in this journal and add them to your publications listed in the ORCID ID by Member API and Public API. When you click the “Authorize” button in the ORCID pop-up window, we will ask you to share your ID using an authenticated process: either by registering for an ORCID ID or, if you already have one, to sign into your ORCID account, then granting us permission to get your ORCID ID. We do this to ensure that you are correctly identified and securely connecting your ORCID ID.

Where are ORCID IDs displayed?
To acknowledge that you have used your ID and that it has been authenticated, we display the ORCID ID icon   alongside your name on the article page of your submission and on your public user profile.
