The GIGA Journal Family is a publishing initiative of the Hamburg University Press and the GIGA. Excellent contributions by researchers from all over the world are featured in its four journals. To ensure the journals' quality, all essays are evaluated in a double-blind peer-review process.
The GIGA Journal Family is funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) as a pilot project in open-access publishing. Since the beginning of 2009 all socio-scientific journals of the GIGA have been transformed into open-access journals. Their content is accessible free of charge on the web, they can be ordered as a newsletter, and they remain available in traditional printed format.
