Call for papers: BRICS Law Journal
The BRICS Law Journal, launched in 2014, is an open access, internationally refereed journal intended to create and sustain an open forum for legal scholars and practitioners interested in legal issues pertaining to the BRICS group. The Journal serves as a valuable tool in the determination of trends, state practice and policies in the development of domestic and international law in BRICS countries. In this regard the BRICS Law Journal serves as a useful platform for the BRICS group in two ways: (1) to seek convergence among its members (given their different priorities and approaches); (2) to prepare and present a common position, which would carry the weight of the entire group in the global arena.
The Chief Editor of the Journal is Dr Dmitry Maleshin (Moscow State Lomonosov University, Russia) and the Associate Editor is Elena Gladun(Tyumen State University, Russia). The Editorial Council is a group of prominent academics and practitioners from BRICS countries within different fields of law.
The Journal calls for articles, commentaries and book review notes for publication in the 2017 editions (Volume 4, No 3 and No 4 which will be issued in September and December, respectively). Notes and commentaries should be from 3,000 to 10,000 words (including footnotes). Articles may be from 10,000 to 30,000 words (including footnotes).
The Editors seek contributions to develop specific elements of the Journal’s research agenda:
“First, in view of the goal of our Journal, the law of integration of the BRICS countries is our priority. We want to improve the research of BRICS legal regulation. Second, due to the origin of our Journal, the law of BRICS countries is important to the Journal. We want BRICS countries’ legal theories, practice and legislative innovations to be widely known in the international academic environment. Third, we welcome articles on comparative law from other countries. We want to make our Journal a platform for international comparative discussion on different legal subjects, regardless of nationality.”
