Launched in 1986 and established as the leading specialist international banking law journal, the Journal of International Banking Law has been expanded to include coverage of regulatory issues - and has been relaunched as the Journal of International Banking Law and Regulation. The increased scope of the Journal reflects the ongoing changes in the international banking, securities and regulatory arena. It provides detailed, practical analysis of international legal and regulatory issues from around the world.

Each month our international correspondents give their views on topical issues and future trends in a comprehensive news section. Articles and analytical pieces combine practical information with academic opinion, identifying current issues and offering guidance and advice; expert reviews of the latest publications ensure that you stay ahead of the competition.

General points about submitting articles
  • Submissions are to be submitted typed, using A4 double-spacing (this also applies for material supplied in electronic form). Details of where to send your submission are supplied below.
  • Full references and footnotes should be provided as necessary. Please provide a 60-word abstract of your submission. This abstract will appear on the contents page of the issue containing your submission.
  • Note that subscribers come from a wide variety of jurisdictions so please provide explanations of terms where necessary. Plain English should be used where appropriate.
  • Please provide the name of the author/s as you wish it to appear in the journal
  • Please remember to supply your email, as a proof of your article will be sent to you by email before publication.
Style Guidelines
Please submit material under one of the following headings. All material must discuss subjects of international interest.

In the style of an editorial, these are topical, opinionated pieces that often express a fairly radical or controversial view. They are shorter in length that articles or analyses, and are more “punchy” in style.
Word length: approximately 1,500

Articles should focus on a major, current theme of interest to the banking and financial community. They should explain a current situation or issue in a fairly practical way and provide thoughtful analysis, comment, evaluation and criticism as appropriate. Comparisons with other jurisdictions should be added where appropriate.
Word length: approximately 4,500-5,500

Legal Analysis
A very specific, significant topic (such as an individual case, Bill, Act or section of an Act) should be discussed. An analysis should explain why it is of relevance to a particular jurisdiction, and internationally. It will be more factual than an article, but still provide a degree of analysis and evaluation. Analysis pieces can often be converted from a significant news item.
Word length: approximately 2,500

Review Process
Please note that all contributions undergo a review process (i.e. manuscripts are submitted to external referees) prior to publication and some amendment may be required to ensure the piece is entirely suitable for publication. It is always preferable to check that your chosen topic has not already been commissioned before you start writing.
