About the Journal

The Nordic Journal on Law and Society (NJOLAS) is a peer-reviewed open access journal that publishes critical and interdisciplinary socio-legal scholarship of particular relevance for the Nordic region (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and political and geographic entities including the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Sápmi and Åland).

Its aim is to provide an intellectual space and meeting-place for critical and socio-legal scholars and to develop critical approaches to law and society in its broadest sense, for example from feminist, intersectional, post-colonial, critical race, historical, socio-economic and everyday life perspectives. The journal welcomes a variety of approaches and scholarship such as theoretical papers, results of empirical studies, methodological work, reviews and work dedicated to didactics in legal education.

The publishing language is English.

The journal applies a double-blind peer review procedure and is committed to making scholarly work on Law and Society in the Nordic countries widely available through open access publishing. No fees are charged for publication or subscription.

NJOLAS plans to publish two issues per year, late spring and late autumn. Within each time-period (January-May and August-December) content will be added as soon as it is ready for publication, without waiting for the next issue or available issue.
