The Editorial Board is excited to announce that NYU’s Journal of International Law and Politics (JILP) will release its inaugural peer review issue in which all leading articles will be selected with the assistance of leading academics in the field. Given NYU’s acknowledged leadership position in all aspects of international law, we believe that this is a natural development. This collaboration allows the JILP to draw on both the energy of student editors and the experience of leading scholars in the field. Authors publishing in the new JILP issue will benefit from additional editorial input and our readers can expect high-quality scholarship in all areas of international law and politics.
This initiative was student-initiated. The JILP will continue to involve students in all respects but will involve legal scholars who are affiliated with NYU (either as members of the permanent faculty or in other capacities) in the selection and substantive editing of articles in their area of expertise. The Journal will continue to publish student notes and book annotations. It will maintain its broad focus on all aspects of international law and seek the finest scholarship from both established authors as well as younger scholars.
The inaugural issue will have as its managing editor José E. Alvarez, the Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law, and will draw from the following scholars to serve on its panel of reviewers, several of whom have served as editors of renowned peer reviewed journals:
We are very grateful for the support of all these outstanding scholars and practitioners whose expertise spans a wide variety of disciplines within international law and look forward to working with them in the years to come.
The inaugural peer review issue will be 45:4, the summer issue to be released in 2013. We are currently accepting submissions of articles for publication under this exciting new model. For details about deadlines and submission procedures, please see Submissions.
