Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in Microsoft Word file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
Articles should generally be between 6,000-10,000 words (including footnotes and spaces). The publishing language is English.
Submitted articles are first reviewed by the editors to ensure that they fit within the scope of the journal. If so, they will be sent out for double blind peer review. Articles are typically sent to two reviewers. Reviewers are asked to comment on the suitability of the article for publication in the journal, and to recommend whether the article should be accepted in its current form, accepted subject to specified revisions, substantially revised and resubmitted, or rejected. The review process can be expected to take 8-12 weeks. Reviewers are selected based on their expertise in the relevant area and availability.
NJOLAS invites book reviews relating to law and society (broadly conceived). If you have a book for review or wish to write for the review section, please contact the editor.
Reviews of monographs should not exceed 800 words and reviews of edited volumes should not exceed 1,000 words. Reviews of dissertations should not exceed 3,000 words. The review section is non-peer reviewed, but submissions will be subject to editorial review.
Please insert a header at the top of the review following this model:
