Call for Papers: Queensland University of Technology Law Review: Submit by July 31





Queensland University of Technology Law Review invites articles for its forthcoming Special Edition, highlighting a broad range of emerging issues and research currently in progress in law and socio-legal disciplines.


  1. students undertaking higher degrees by research, and
  2. early career researchers.

This Special Edition is designed to provide an introduction to academic publishing for higher degree by research students. Articles will be subject to rigorous blind peer review, but we encourage submissions that present projects still in progress and do not yet have firm conclusions or results. Peer reviewers will focus on the ability of the article to present a novel methodological or conceptual approach to an existing problem or to identify a new socio-legal issue that has not been extensively studied. Submitted manuscripts will also be evaluated for technical competency and standard English expression. The word limit for this Special Edition is 4,000–5,000 words (excluding footnotes).

Submissions are due by 31 July 2014, and the Special Edition will be published in late 2014.

Articles submitted may include (but are not limited to):
• Scoping articles that set out the justification for a new theoretical or methodological approach to a significant problem.
• Critical reviews of the literature that identify a conceptual gap surrounding existing ways of thinking about an issue.
• Early-stage research or pilot projects that highlight an emerging socio-legal issue not well understood in the literature.
