We seek to publish articles making a significant and original contribution to the fields of international and comparative law. Articles on particularly timely issues are viewed especially favorably. Essays and book reviews are also accepted.
Print and CJIL Online submissions are considered on a rolling basis. For our print edition, submissions should be between 15,000 and 22,000 words, excluding footnotes. For our online edition, submissions should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words, excluding footnotes. All manuscripts must be thoroughly footnoted, with all references cited in Bluebook format. Limited resources prevent us from accepting drafts that require substantial stylistic or substantive changes.
CJIL accepts electronic submissions through Scholastica at https://scholasticahq.com. Please include a résumé or curriculum vitae with your manuscript. There is no need to submit a cover letter. CJIL also considers submissions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org; however, submissions via Scholastica are strongly preferred. We review submissions as soon as possible. We will contact the author immediately upon acceptance.
