Author Guidelines

The Sorbonne Student Law Review - Revue juridique des étudiants de la Sorbonne develops a bilingual editorial line in French and in English highlighting the work of researchers, whether experienced or not, and guest professors of the Sorbonne Law School as well as those of researchers not affiliated with the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.

The review promotes all legal contributions, regardless of the specific fields in which they are made, and particularly encourages studies relating to French law written in English as well as "transdisciplinary" studies, such as Law & Economics, Law & Literature, anthropology of law, etc..  

The review defends the highest academic standards and does not participate to the political debate, although it ensures respect of the humanist values that one can reasonably be expected from any academic work. The review shall also not publish contributions that are not in good standing in English or French.

Manuscripts must meet the following requirements:The Editorial Committee controls the entire submission process. It may request the author, after consulting the Reading Committee, to make changes to the content and form of the manuscript. If it considers it necessary, or at the request of the Reading Committee, the Editorial Committee may request the Scientific Committee of the review for advice. The Scientific Committee may also be requested to provide peer review if the author's status or the particularity of their article so requires.

The Editorial Committee remains sovereign in the administration of the manuscripts. These are guaranteed to be published only after formal authorization by the Editorial Committee notified to the author.

The author may, before the notification of publication, request the withdrawal of their manuscript, without having to justify the reason. The author may also challenge comments made by the Reading Committee regarding possible substantive or formal changes. This challenge must be justified and cannot be directed against a decision of the Editorial Committee. Refusal to comply with a decision of the Editorial Committee results in the immediate and final withdrawal of the manuscript from the reading and publication process. 

Manuscripts are peer-reviewed following the double-blind method. Authors are asked not to try to obtain the identity or contact the member of th Reading Committee in charge of the evaluation. Any such attempt will lead to the rejection of the submission.
