The Law Brigade (Book) Publishers is a book publishing division of The Law Brigade Group. The Books division was started on January 2022 and has been operational since then. We have started with publishing a conference proceeding for Sharda University and an Edited Book by Central University of Himachal Pradesh, Dharamshala. Since then, we have been publishing edited books of academic importance.
All our books are Open Access Books and we do not sell any book. Instead, we publish and distribute the book for free. In turn, we charge the author of the Open Access Books with a publication fee which covers our publishing expenses.

Publication's Objective & Scope
Open Access (OA) refers to the practice of making research publications openly accessible so that everyone can read and utilise research.
More than just making research accessible for reading, open access also includes allowing others to reuse that study. For instance, allowing text mining, analysis or reusing the content for profit. Additionally, more and more publications and research data are being made freely available.
Open access is a component of a larger “open” movement that promotes the unrestricted sharing of information and resources to increase access and foster creativity.
Research is only accessible to those who can afford it when it is kept behind a publisher’s paywall. Anyone, from small firms to schools, can gain from more widespread access to research.
Gold open access
Gold open access means immediate access to an article in an online journal. Some journals contain only open access articles whereas others, known as hybrid journals, may offer a mix of open and subscription content. In both cases, there are costs associated with publishing which need to be met.
These costs, usually paid to the publisher through article processing charges (APCs), may be paid by authors or subsidised by a third party such as a funding council. Some journals don’t charge authors to publish and the costs are subsidised by a third party, such as a learned society. This is sometimes referred to as ‘diamond’ or ‘platinum’ OA.
Green open access
Green open access involves publishing in a traditional subscription journal as usual, but articles are also ‘self-archived’ in a repository (institutional or external subject-based repository) and usually made available after an embargo period set by the publisher. No charges are paid.
Researchers and research institutions
Set against a background of rising journal costs and constrained library budgets, the benefits of open access to researchers and research institutions include:
- Improving reach of research
- Helping to provide evidence for impact
- Improved reputation for researchers and their host institution through increased citations.
- Improved quality of research through open, transparent and reproducible research practices
