From Copyright Experiences
The Journal of Academic Legal Studies: JOALS
The Journal of Academic Legal Studies (JOALS) is a new, free access online journal initiated by the Centre for Applied Linguistics of the University of Hannover. All content is published under a creative commons license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/de/).
It aims to provide young legal scholars with an entry point into the world of academic publishing, applying a rigid peer-review system whilst acknowledging that high quality academic work can be produced by undergraduates, postgraduates and postdoctoral scholars alike.
For each issue of the journal – at least twice per year (February and August), with the possibility of special issues on particularly interesting points of law – it is intended to achieve a combination of articles from established scholars and young academics as well as professionals and young lawyers.
Contributions are currently solicited, ranging from full articles to book reviews of interesting works of legal literature. Although an international focus in encouraged, it is not a requirement for consideration.
Current academic advisory board:
Professor Roger Brownsword (King's College London)
Professor Nikolaus Forgó (University of Hannover)
Professor Lawrence Lessig (Stanford Law School)
Professor Dietmar von der Pfordten (University of Goettingen)
