ANEE is committed to open access publishing and hence draws up regular reports on its progress in order to improve open access publishing. The reports evaluate the Open Access (OA) publications by the Centre of Excellence in Ancient Near Eastern Empires for each year and provide recommendations to ensure progress in the upcoming years. Both the University of Helsinki and the Academy of Finland require all scholarly publications, with the execption of monographs, to be OA available.
