NFRAL Forum for Writing and Research in Arbitration: Call for Papers
NFRAL - an exclusively online forum for writing and research in arbitration run by a body of students, legal professionals and academicians is now live at www.nfral.in.
NFRAL has been conceptualized to:
- Create a forum for publishing cutting-edge writing on arbitration on an ongoing basis.
- Develop a community of researchers and Authors to create an open access comprehensive online commentary on Indian arbitration.
NFRAL is now accepting submissions - 'articles' and 'blog posts' on a rolling basis. Original contributions analysing an issue relevant to understanding or development of arbitration law are welcome. While there is no preset limitation on the length of an article, short pieces enhance the quality of legal scholarship. Blog pieces should typically be within 1200 - 1500 words.
All 'articles' should be submitted with an abstract of 100 - 150 words in length.
Must be word-processed with font Times New Roman only; Line spacing 1.5 one line gap between all paragraphs and headings. One-inch indent at beginning of all paragraphs.
We encourage exclusive submissions. If your piece is under consideration for publication anywhere else or by another journal, please indicate so in the submission form provided on the site. Anonymization: The name of the Author or institutional affiliation must not be mentioned anywhere in the submission, but in the fields stipulated in the submission form.
If there are co-authors, please provide the details in the submission form.
If you are a first-time user, you will be required to register by clicking on "sign up". Send your contribution by using the "Submit Now" feature under "Submissions" tab in Microsoft Word format. You can also write your piece and submit it using the in-built text editor. Your name, biographical information, and acknowledgments should be provided in a separate page.
Our editorial process is fully blinded and a combination of technical review by student-editors and a substantive review by the experts and peers. Contributions which are not regarded as meeting the expected quality are rejected. As a matter of policy, we do not provide information on rejection of any submission.
