    Guide for Contributors to the European Law Review:

    1. Please follow these guidelines when submitting material to the journal. It will avoid delays in acceptance of your material.
    2. All contributions must be in English. Copyright in all contributions remains with the contributors; the publishers acquire the right to publish accepted contributions both in hard-copy and in electronic form.
    3. No liability is accepted for loss of or damage to material submitted to the journal. Unless otherwise agreed with one of the Editors, submission of a contribution will be held to imply that it contains original work and has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere, whether in print or electronic form.
    4. All contributions are peer-reviewed prior to publication by qualified experts who are independent of the author(s). The Editors aim to notify authors of the outcome of the review within four to six weeks. Once material has been accepted for publication in the journal, it should not be submitted for publication elsewhere, either in print or electronic form, without the consent of one of the Editors. In cases of doubt, contributors are encouraged to contact one of the Editors for clarification.
    5. The preferred extent of articles is between 8,000 and 12,000 words including footnotes. The preferred extent of contributions to Analysis and Reflections is between 4,000 and 8,000 words including footnotes. Contributors must specify the number of words including footnotes in their contributions. A summary of around 150 words must be submitted with the manuscript.
    6. Manuscripts should be word-processed and presented double-spaced throughout (text and footnotes) with generous margins. The text must be submitted in Word via email.
    7. Manuscripts should include the author’s affiliation as well as biographical information in an asterisked footnote attached to the name of each author. An address for delivery of proofs must be supplied. Where a contribution advances an argument which might be perceived as serving the interests of someone for whom the author acts in a professional capacity, or with whom the author has a commercial connection, an appropriate declaration should be added to the biographical information supplied.
    8. Footnotes should be brief and informative, kept to a minimum and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. Footnotes must not be attached to the title of the article, summary or any headings.
    9. Cross-references should be to the text accompanying a particular footnote and not to a page number.
    10. Proofs will be sent to contributors who undertake to check and return them promptly. Excessive changes cannot be accommodated. Contributors to the Articles/Analysis and Reflections sections of the journal will be supplied with a free pdf offprint of their contribution together with two free copies of the issue in which their contribution is published.
    11. A more detailed guide to writing for the journal, including advice on levels of heading, is available here.
