Policy, submission requirements and style guide
The Griffith Law Review: Law Theory Society welcomes contributions of interdisciplinary, socio-legal, critical and theoretical legal research. All submissions will be subjected to a peer review process before publication. The Editors request that authors give the Griffith Law Review: Law Theory Society an exclusive option to publish their contribution for one month from the date it is received: the Editors will use their best endeavours to advise authors within that period whether the piece will be considered for publication or not. All submissions must be original in content, previously unpublished and not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
We are a peer-reviewed journal. All published research articles will have been subject to review by at least two anonymous, suitably qualified referees.
All submissions of original research manuscripts, contributions to Open Space or book reviews should be made online at the Griffith Law Review Editorial Manager website: http://www.edmgr.com/rlaw/. New users should first create an account. Once logged on to the site, submissions should be made via the Author Centre. Online user guides and access to a helpdesk are available on this website.
The Editors ask that all submissions conform to the GLR Style and Referencing guide (see below). Manuscripts that do not conform to the referencing requirements will not be considered.
Proposals for themed special or symposium issues can be sent to the Editors: firstname.lastname@example.org in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) format.
Research manuscripts should not exceed 10,000 words in length excluding abstract, citations and reference list. Book reviews should not exceed 1500 words.
The style guide was revised in July 2001 and all submitted articles must conform to the current style guide.
All submissions must be in English using the Australian Oxford English Dictionary spelling throughout, except where quotations demand otherwise. It is the policy of the Griffith Law Review that non-sexist language be used in all articles it publishes.
