THE REVIEWING PROCESS
“Law Review” stands open to studies, articles, comments, analyses and thorough researches established for private law institutions, but also for public law institutions.
A special place in the editorial policy is hold by studies, comments and articles on new regulations, as well as by those referring to comparative law and to the European Union Law.
Also, the review publishes summaries of legal practice, as well as the Romanian and European jurisprudence accompanied by comments drafted in the form of favorable or critical notes substantiated theoretically and practically.
Similarly, attention is directed to articles and studies developed by foreign authors, personalities of law recognized internationally, in order to inform the Romanian reader of the valuable contributions brought by the aforementioned to the enrichment of law doctrine.
Studies and comments promoting the law doctrine must be based on a solid bibliography which should not be deficient in fundamental works published in the country and, insomuch as these are relevant to those writings, those works published abroad. By relevant writings we mean also articles published in ISI Thompson Database indexed journals.
In connection with the reviewing process, it should be pointed out that, with no exception, all works submitted for publication in the review undergo in the first phase analysis and approval undertaken by the editors, the draft summary being laid down by the editor in chief. Works and draft summaries are submitted in time for consideration to two reviewers - members of the editorial board and highly rated academics. During the meeting of the editorial board, the reviewers put forward the content of reports they have been drawing up and together with the review’s editors decide upon the table of contents and papers selected for publication. The basic criteria in the editorial process are the scientific value of materials, the scientific prestige of authors, as well as the review’s readers’ interest, which, for the most part, are its loyal subscribers (legal advisers, judges, lawyers etc.).
The evaluation criteria considered by reviewers in preparing reports can be observed in the review form link.
In compliance with Law no. 8/1996 on Copyright and Related Rights, as subsequently amended and supplemented, the acceptance by the editorial board of materials submitted for publication stands for the valid conclusion of the publishing agreement; according to this agreement, the author assigns the exclusive right of reproduction and dissemination of his work. The publishing agreement is terminated by right if, until the final correction date of the review’s issue, major legislative changes have occurred influencing the content of the issues treated.
The decision on the publication or non-publication will be notified to the author within 45 days of receipt of the article.
Materials submitted to the editorial staff for publication may not be tender to other publications unless their publishing is declined.
Contributors are asked to observe copyright laws completely keeping away of any form of plagiarism and to complete the license to publish the form.
