The European Competition Law Review welcomes all contributions on current and topical issues of competition law which may take the form of:
- a short 1,500-3,000 word case comment/opinion

- a longer 5,000 plus article providing an in-depth analysis of a topic of competition law, case law or regulatory change
We would be delighted to hear about your ideas for publication.
For those who may not have published before, our editorial team is on hand to answer your questions, and we stand ready to discuss contributors’ ideas for articles at an early stage. If you are a student wishing to submit, we will consider submissions from those doing their Masters, if recommended, and will continue to consider submissions from PhD students. Please contact Commissioning Editor Jen Martyres firstname.lastname@example.org
, or Publisher Lucy Gardner email@example.com
with your ideas and questions.
Journal submission & acceptance
The time from initial article submission to final publication can be split into 2 stages: the decision process and the editorial process.
This is a guideline and is for information only.
Stage 1: The decision process
- Article submitted - acknowledgement email sent and the article is sent to the Editor for consideration (up to one week)
- Editorial consideration of journal (1-3 weeks)
- Contributor is informed of the outcome of their submission
- Article is sent to editorial and is allocated to a particular issue. In some circumstances, this could be the current issue in production but generally, it’s 2-3 months in advance.
- Once a schedule is confirmed, the contributor is informed.
Stage 2: The editorial process
- The article is sent to the copy-editor (1 week)
- Articles are keyed in to our content management system (2 weeks)
- Proofs sent out to authors for checking (1 week)
- Final checks, cover preparation, clear to press (1 week)
Currently the end-to-end process from submission to publication averages at six months.
