Budapest Open Access Initiative
Living Reviews in Relativity supports the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI), which is a statement of principles and strategies dedicated to the removal of barriers to the access of scientific literature. The BOAI regards the journal as an example of the "new generation of open-accessed journals" whose foundation the initiative aims to foster.
European Mathematical Information Service (EMIS)
For fast access from abroad, the journal is offered on 29 mirror sites worldwide, courtesy of the European Mathematical Society's European Mathematical Information Service.
European Physical Society
In October 2002, the European Physical Society, granted the "recognised journal status" to Living Reviews in Relativity, acknowledging its "scientific excellence and accordance to international standards".
Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL)
Living Reviews in Relativity is part of a cooperation between the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics and the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL), also called the Living Reviews BackOffice. This project has been granted generous financial support by the Heinz Nixdorf Foundation. Please find more information about this cooperation here.
In 2001, Living Reviews in Relativity joined an international consortium of research teams in the European IST project, named MoWGLI (Mathematics on the Web: Get it by Logic and Interface). Please find more information about this project and the Hermes tool here.
Indexes & Abstracting Services
OAI Protocol for Metadata Harvesting:
Living Reviews in Relativity provides article metadata through its OAI-PMH server to Open Archives harvesters such as OAIster or Scientific Commons.
We also provide article level metadata to Lund University's Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). Thus, we participate in the effort to provide users with search functionalities and easy access to freely available scientific articles on the web.
The NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) includes entries of all Living Reviews articles.
ZentralBlatt MATH:
The ZentralBlatt MATH database stores abstracts of all our articles as well.
