CFP: Quality of Legal Research, Rethinking Legal Scholarship

Tilburg University

Tilburg Law Review invites article submissions for its Spring 2018 special issue entitled “A Call for Quality.” Abstracts are due by June 15, 2017.

This issue marks the start of our life as ‘Open Access’ journal, meaning that as of then, all published articles will be freely accessible online. Celebrating this transition, we want to take the opportunity to reflect upon the question what defines quality of (emerging) legal research, and what methods can be used to make quality assessments.

Possible topics include:

Assessing the quality of legal research
Methods of quality assessment
Law journal rankings, bibliometrics and peer review
Comparing assessment mechanisms
Issues surrounding (new) methods and fields of legal research
Rethinking legal scholarship
Editorial process developments and open access platforms
Future course(s) of legal research

Tilburg Law Review, Journal of International and European Law (TiLR), is a peer-reviewed, student-run academic publication that was founded in 1991. It serves as a forum for leading scholarship debating on issues of international and European law.
