Submission Guidelines


The International Company and Commercial Law Review (ICCLR) was established over 30 years ago with a view to supporting and publishing works of the highest scholarship from across the world. It is peer reviewed and supported by a specialist team of editors and advisors, from academia and the professions.

The journal is a monthly journal devoted to the field of corporate and commercial law and believes that the development of law and legal practice benefit from an internationalist understanding of company and commercial law. The journal thus invites works of quality touching on national, international and regional perspectives on the subject. Works from diverse perspectives and approaches are welcome but all contributions should be properly supported by a robust research methodological framework. Since its inception many of the most distinguished scholars and practitioners in company and commercial law globally have had their works published in the ICCLR.

Submissions are invited for three sections of the journal:

Articles should be an in-depth analysis of an important theme or subject matter in the field of company and commercial law of between 5,000 to 7,000 words (inclusive of footnotes), though shorter or longer contributions may be considered. Article should describe the research problem and questions clearly. Purely descriptive works would not be considered.

Analysis or Opinion
An Analysis or Opinion piece takes the form of a short briefing providing an update on the law, commenting on a particular legal development or offering an opinion on a legal issue. Notes with relevance for professional practice are also invited. An Analysis or Opinion piece should not exceed 3,000 words.

Book Reviews
Book reviews should offer a short summary of a recent book (published in the last two years) in the field along with critical analysis and insight. Book reviews are normally between 800 and 1,500 words in length. Please contact lucy.gardner@thomsonreuters.com to discuss a book review or to obtain a review copy.


Footnotes should be numbered consecutively (from 1 onwards). Cases and statutes, etc., should be cited accurately and in the correct format, preferably in the footnotes.

In preparing typescripts, authors should conform to the journal's House Style. Please follow the format used in a recent issue of ICCLR; a style guide is available here.

Articles should be accompanied by an abstract of up to 50 words. This abstract will appear on the contents page of the ICCLR.


Authors should provide their biographical information in the form in which they wish it to appear in the ICCLR. Submission of Articles or other contributions will be held to imply that they contain original, unpublished work and are not being submitted for publication elsewhere. No liability is accepted for loss or damage to material submitted. Please note that it is the responsibility of the author(s) of each paper to collect any permissions and acknowledgements necessary for the paper to be published prior to submission.

The contribution should be sent as an email attachment in Word format, together with the contributor's full mailing address.

Footnotes should be numbered consecutively from 1 onwards. Cases and statutes, etc., should be cited accurately and in the correct format, preferably in the footnotes.

Review process:

An initial assessment is carried out by the General Editor, usually within three weeks of receipt of a submission. At this stage some submissions are rejected because of overlap with other submissions under consideration, or because the subject matter falls outside the scope of the journal, or the submission clearly falls below the quality threshold for publication.

Potentially publishable submissions are subject to anonymous review by experts in the field. The review process is designed to be a positive experience for authors. Whether or not a submission is accepted for publication, it is the aim of the reviewers to give helpful guidance on how the presentation or content of a submission could be developed. The reviewers do their best to reach a conclusion within six weeks of submissions although, in some cases, the process may take longer.

All articles will be reviewed according to the following criteria (in no particular order):

  • Depth of analysis
  • Originality
  • Methodology
  • Evaluation
  • Relevance
  • Accuracy

Contributions will be accepted entirely at the discretion of the Editorial Board. Submission to the journal implies that the contributor agrees to having their works checked for plagiarism. Breach of academic integrity standards will result in the article rejected and appropriate measures taken to safeguard the integrity and reputation of the journal.

Proofs will be sent to authors as a PDF file by email and corrections must be returned without delay.

Copyright in contributions is vested jointly with the authors and the publishers.

Contributions to be considered for publication should be sent to the Publisher: katy.sadat@thomsonreuters.com.

Complimentary copies and offprints:

Complimentary copies: Two complimentary copies of the issue in which their article appears will be provided to each contributor.

Offprints: Information on offprints will be made available to authors on acceptance of their contributions.
