New in 2022!
European Law Open (ELO) delivers a dynamic, critical and contextual approach to European law in an Open Access format. The journal is open to different voices, different concerns, and different methodologies, offering a platform for rigorous analysis of both EU law itself and wider European law and governance in their political, cultural, social and economic contexts. Intellectually ambitious 'Core analysis' research papers will be published alongside shorter ‘Dialogue and debate’ pieces as well as reflections on books and classic articles. European Law Open is the bold new platform for the diverse voices of the EU law community.
As a barrier-free Gold Open Access journal, a fee waiver system is in place for unfunded authors.
Celebrating over 20 years of Open Access publishing
The German Law Journal is a pioneering open-access forum for the publication of scholarship and commentary on comparative, European, and international law. It has been online and freely-available since 1999. Founded as a transatlantic newsletter on developments in German law, the Journal has secured a place among the world's leading law reviews disseminating scholarship across borders. The Journal combines high-quality theoretical research with reports on current developments and thematic special issues. Pursuing this agenda, the Journal has gained a reputation for innovative publishing - linking cutting-edge, border-crossing scholarship with open access and speed to publication.
