QUT Law Review (Queensland University of Technology) invites articles for its forthcoming Special Edition, highlighting emerging issues in law and socio-legal disciplines.
For this special issue, we are seeking submissions from students undertaking higher degrees by research and from other early career researchers. We aim to highlight a broad range of emerging issues and provide an overview of research currently in progress.
This Special Edition is designed to provide an introduction to academic publishing for higher degree by research students. Articles will be subject to rigorous blind peer review, but we encourage submissions that present projects still in progress and do not yet have firm conclusions or results. Peer reviewers will focus on the ability of the article to present a novel methodological or conceptual approach to an existing problem or to identify a new socio-legal issue that has not been extensively studied. Submitted manuscripts will also be evaluated for technical competency and standard English expression.
The word limit for this Special Edition is 4,0005,000 words (excluding footnotes). Submissions are due by 31 July 2014, and the Special Edition will be published in late 2014.
The full call for papers is here.
