As publisher, The Grassroots Institute always seeks membership of various libraries in the world so that our publications including journals are accessed by the libraries. Time to time, we approach the libraries and catalogue services and register our journals. The libraries can also approach us as publisher or individual journals.

Our journals are Open Access journals and all published articles are distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License (or the Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial License CC BY-NC), which allows users to (noncommercially) copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship.


The electronic PDF version of the current and past issues of all the journals published The Grassroots Institute are open access and free of charge for the readers. Hence, we do not operate any subscription for any of the journals.


The published articles in each of our journals can be freely downloaded from the respective webpages of individual journals. Besides, we upload metadata on certain indexing portals.

Indexing & Metadata Format

Our journals collaborate with a number of indexing and abstracting services. There are several ways to automatically access and index content from respective webpages of individual journals. We also have several feeds in place to deliver content and metadata directly to indexing partners.

  1. Through Crossref using DOI numbers. Our journals are members of Crossref and we register a DOI number and deposit the metadata for all articles. Note that articles published the same day are delivered to Crossref overnight and might therefore be available only the next day. There are several ways to request metadata from Crossref, for example one easy method is using CURL (available for Linux and Windows).
  2. Through manual download. You can download any or all articles from the webpages of the individual journals. To ease the process, first set the “Articles per Page” to the maximum number of 100.
