Authors and editors can also submit papers to EconStor free of charge.

EconStor is among the largest repositories in its discipline with more than 100,000 full-texts, and it regularly reaches top positions in international rankings. More than 400 institutions use it for the digital dissemination of their publications in Open Access. EconStor is also an important input service for RePEc, where it is one of the most highly frequented archives.
