International Review of Law (IRL): Call for Papers
The International Review of Law is a refreshing new journal that articulates contemporary legal discourse. From its base in the Middle East, the journal aims to bring perspectives from around the world to developments in the law.
The journal publishes different types of articles:
- Research articles should describe a piece of original research, with results (positive or negative) which advance the scientific field or add evidence to a proposed theory. All research articles are expected to be appropriately referenced, citing all prior research pertinent to the work being presented.
- Review articles are typically commissioned by the Editor-in-Chief. If you have an idea for a review article, please contact the Editor-in-Chief in the first instance.
- Legal updates (professional eg. from law firms on a matter relevant to the legal profession, sometimes referred to as recent developments)
- Case notes
- Book reviews
- Other sections. The Journal may include other informational sections as suggested by the Executive Editorial Board or the Editorial Committee. If you have an idea for another type of article, please contact the Editor-in-Chief.
- Language: The journal accepts articles in Arabic or English. You may use American or British spellings throughout, but not a mixture. We have translation services, since the abstract of every article is published in both languages and specially selected articles are translated in full. On acceptance, the committee will also provide a translation of your abstract in Arabic.
All articles that require it will be copyedited prior to acceptance. Some will be copyedited prior to review. Authors will be able to review the edits before final acceptance.
- Typography: For ease of reviewing, we kindly ask that submitted manuscripts be double line spaced.
- Text should be left-justified, with no hyphenation at line breaks.
- Titles, headings and subheadings should have only the first word and proper nouns capitalized. Again, to make reviewers lives simpler, we ask that you number all pages. All special characters used should be embedded in the text; otherwise they will be lost during conversion to PDF.
- Title Page: This page is a useful tool for reviewers of your manuscript and should include the following information:
- Full title of the manuscript
- All authors' names
- All authors' affiliations
- Corresponding author's email address and telephone number
- Keywords for the article
Abstract & keywords (mandatory): The abstract should be between 200-300 words with a maximum of 500 words. Please do not cite references in the abstract and limit the use of acronyms and abbreviations. After the abstract, include a line of keywords (3-6) of your choosing.
