ELSSS, the ELectronic Society for Social Scientists is a new, non-profit-making society, whose mission is to improve scientific communication in the social sciences, especially by the provision of electronic publications of high quality, wide diffusion and low cost for the direct benefit of the academic community (and indirectly for the taxpayer and the general public).
ELSSS is an initiative aimed at:
1. Increasing competition in the academic journal publishing marketplace;
2.Introducing a fairer and more efficient way of producing, distributing, and consuming academic journals
whereby the large surpluses currently being earned by some commercial publishers are redistributed to the individuals who make journals, namely, authors, referees, and editors - with substantial savings for libraries and the academic and student community.
