While HeinOnline users are familiar with browsing a collection by title, author, date, or subject, unique to the Open Society Justice Initiative collection is the ability to browse titles by Publication Type. The Justice Initiative assigns a publication type to each work it publishes, and those assignments have been preserved here in HeinOnline. Looking for one of the Justice Initiative's briefing papers, providing summaries of matters before various courts?
