Author Guidelines

  1. Submissions should be accompanied by an assurance that the article has not been published, submitted, or accepted elsewhere.
  2. Articles and studies should include a 200-word (maximum) abstract, a short note about the author and his/her e-mail address. If possible, manuscripts should be internally structured in three parts (minimum): therein "Introduction" and "Conclusion".
  3. Authors are strictly requested to consult and follow the rules of the Oxford Standard for the Citation of Legal Authorities (http://www.law.ox.ac.uk/published/OSCOLA_4th_edn.pdf,
    http://www.law.ox.ac.uk/published/OSCOLA_2006_citing_international_law.pdf).
  4. Submitted texts should follow British English standards. Writers can in this regard turn to "The Oxford Manual of Style" as a fairly exhaustive guide.
  5. Submitted texts should not in principle exceed the volume of 1.5 publisher’s sheets (60,000 typographical units) including footnotes. It is allowed exceptionally to submit papers in the larger form of scientific essays (studies). However, they should not be larger than 2 publisher’s sheets (80,000 typographical units). Their publishing is possible subject to the prior acceptance of the Editor-in-Chief. Texts to be published in the WRLAE as articles should count no less than 20,000 typographical units (0.5 publisher’s sheet). Authors are also encouraged to submit contributions to the WRLAE in the form of comments, briefer notices, glosses on judicial decisions, polemics, review essays or book reviews.
  6. The WRLAE is a peer-reviewed journal. Manuscripts received are evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief or one other member of the Board of Editors and by two anonymous external referees.
  7. The final decisions on acceptance, rejection or need for revision will be taken by the Board of Editors on the basis of opinions submitted in a peer review process and formal answers thereto given by authors. That means that the decisive condition for publication in the WRLAE is excellence with regard to the manuscript’s scientific value and accuracy of research.
  8. The "ghostwriting" and "guest authorship" practices are considered as a sign of very serious misconduct.
