Fall 2013 Law Review Article Submission Guide

Nancy Levit (UMKC) & Allen Rostron (UMKC) have updated their incredibly useful document, which contains two charts for the Fall 2013 submission season covering 203 law reviews.

The first chart (pp. 1-54) contains information gathered from the journals’ websites on:

  • Methods for submitting an article (such as by e-mail, ExpressO, regular mail, Scholastica, or Twitter)
  • Any special formatting requirements
  • How to request an expedited review
  • How to withdraw an article after it has been accepted for publication elsewhere

The second chart (pp. 55-61) contains the ranking of the law reviews and their schools under six measures:

  • U.S. News: Overall Rank
  • U.S. News: Peer Reputation Rating
  • U.S. News: Judge/Lawyer Reputation Rating
  • Washington & Lee Citation Ranking
  • Washington & Lee Impact Factor
  • Washington & Lee Combined Rating

They also have posted a list of links to the submissions information on each law journal’s website. Nancy also notes:

The highlights from this round of revisions include the following: First, the list of law reviews is now up from 202 to 203 with the addition of a brand new law review, and for the first time it includes a law review that accepts submissions by Twitter. (The new law review is Belmont. The Twitter-friendly law review is Case Western Reserve.) Second, the chart now includes as much information as possible about what law reviews are not accepting submissions right now, what dates they say they'll resume accepting submissions, etc.
