Open Access

CCR is an Open Access, online only journal, funded primarily through sponsorships and donations. CCR does not charge a subscription fee and does not currently charge a mandatory article processing fee. Articles are published under the terms of the CC-BY 4.0 license

The journal is indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals.


CCR publishes articles only after a rigorous peer-review process. CCR strives towards quick publication, as the speed of computational developments quickly outpaces current publication cycles. Besides encouraging quick reviews and taking quick decisions, this will be facilitated by a two-phase review process.

In phase one, a traditional double blind ‘adversarial’ review takes place, where the central task for the reviewer and editors is to judge whether a manuscript is (potentially) publishable. The outcome of phase one, which can hopefully be done in a single review round, is a conditional decision (intent) to publish. 

After the conditional decision to publish, the author is encouraged to publish the manuscript on a preprint archive like SSRN or SocArXiv. The journal website will link to this manuscript as a ‘working paper’. Any revisions in this phase are not required to be blinded. The reviewers get the option to be publicly identified on the article if published.
