The Interdisciplinary Journal of Human Rights Law (IJHRL) is an annual, peer-reviewed scholarly journal published by the Council for American Students in International Negotiations. The journal invites quality submissions from scholars, jurists, and professionals in fields related to human rights. Occasionally, exceptional student work will be accepted. IJHRL also welcomes review essays, book reviews, and comments/notes from the field. Manuscripts are accepted on a rolling basis, with preference given to submissions received before July 1, 2010 for the upcoming issue.
Manuscripts must be computer generated in MS Word and submitted electronically in .doc format via e-mail or Berkeley Electronic Press’s ExpressO submission service. Each submission should contain an abstract of no more than 150 words, a CV, appropriate contact information and a cover letter to the editor assuring that the manuscript has not been submitted or published elsewhere. Manuscripts should range from 3,000 to 10,000 words (approximately 15-25 pages) and be typed, double-spaced. Manuscripts exceeding the maximum length may not be considered. Book reviews may run from 1,000 to 2,500 words. Papers should adhere to The Chicago Manual of Style and cite sources in standard American legal format according to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation.
Submissions are subject to external, double-blind peer review. Additionally, authors are encouraged to seek comments on their manuscripts from colleagues within their discipline. Notification of acceptance, rejection or need for revision will be given within approximately 6-8 weeks of receipt of manuscript.
Submissions and other editorial correspondence should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
