So what is open access?
Open access (OA) is a set of principles and a range of practices through which research outputs are distributed online, free of cost or other access barriers. Through licensing via an open license (usually a Creative Commons License), freely available outputs can also be legally shared and reused. Hence, open access is more than just free access.

Queensland University of Technology (QUT) supports the publication of five open access journals - including Law, Technology and Humans. Content is published under a Creative Commons Attribution Licence and there are no article processing charges (APCs) to be paid by authors. These journals are published with the support of QUT Library using the Open Journals System (OJS) software.
The Law, Technology and Humans journal (supported by the School of Law) this year attained the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) Seal. The DOAJ Seal is a mark of certification for open access journals, awarded by DOAJ to journals that achieve a high level of openness and adhere to Best Practice and high publishing standards.
Only 9% of journals indexed by DOAJ have been awarded the Seal, and of these only 11 journals from Australia have the seal – three of these are QUT journals (International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy; Law, Technology and Humans, and; Student Success).
Law, Technology and Humans commenced publishing in 2019 and publishes original, innovative research concerned with the human and humanity of law and technology.
