Call for Articles: Chinese Law & Policy Review
Bilingual online journal seeks articles in Chinese and in English
We would like to introduce the Chinese Law & Policy Review (CLPR), formerly the Chinese Law Review, a bilingual online journal run by students of the University of Pennsylvania Law School. We are proud to announce that we are accepting submissions for our issue scheduled for publication in 2007.
The mission of the Chinese Law & Policy Review is to provide a bilingual forum for the study of the law of greater China, including the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. Through our bilingual nature, we hope to form a bridge between English and Chinese-language scholarship and scholars.
Submissions should be related to the law of greater China. They may be from anyone with an interest in the law of greater China, including legal academics, legal professionals, students, and others. They may be in Chinese or English. Articles will be translated into the other language so that both versions will appear side by side. There are no length requirements and submissions may be of any type, including articles, essays, regulations reviews, and book reviews. Submissions must be properly cited. CLPR will select the highest quality manuscripts for publication. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2006-2007, CLPR is accepting submissions for an issue that feature an exciting collaboration with Peking University Law Journal (PULJ), a leading independent legal journal in China. This collaboration not only gives CLPR access to high quality works submitted to PULJ, but also allows CLPR to provide PULJ with articles for review and publication. The collaboration gives our authors a unique opportunity to have their works reach a much broader Chinese readership as their article may be published in both CLPR and PULJ. Ultimately, the editorial board of PULJ makes final decisions on whether articles submitted to CLPR will be published in their journal. Nonetheless, articles accepted for publication in CLPR will be featured along side those works by the top legal scholars and practitioners of China. The issue is a special issue entitled "Rethinking the Chinese Criminal Procedure Law" and will publish articles focused on this theme. The deadline for submissions for is February 1, 2007.
Once CLPR and the author has have agreed to publish a piece, our editors will check it for accuracy and proper citation format to conform to the 18th edition of the Bluebook for English pieces and proper Chinese legal citation format for Chinese pieces. The finished edit will then be published and be given to our translators. We are currently in talks to have CLPR articles submitted to Lexis, Westlaw, and ChinaLawInfo and will take all steps to offer the broadest possible dissemination of your work.
We are currently in the process of seeking official recognition from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. However, please kindly note that this Review is currently not an official journal at the Law School. While we have reasonable hopes that it will become official, we cannot guarantee that this will ultimately happen. In the interim, CLPR will be functioning independently of the Law School, even while its editors are and will be selected from the Law School's J.D., LL.M., and S.J.D. candidates and Professor Jacques deLisle of the Law School is serving as advisor.
