PoliciesThe Boston College Law Review (firstname.lastname@example.org) publishes 5 issues annually. It is the oldest scholarly publication at Boston College Law School. The Review publishes a wide range of articles concerning diverse legal issues of national interest.
The Boston College Law Review accepts submissions year-round. We are currently accepting submissions for our September 2013 and November 2013 issues. BCLR accepts both electronic and hard copy submissions. We strongly prefer to receive submissions via our online submission system. We now accept submissions via Scholastica and no longer accept submissions via ExpressO. More information about our Scholastica transition is available here. Even if you choose to submit an article in hard copy, we encourage you to send a supplementary electronic copy via our online submission service (Scholastica) or e-mail (email@example.com), as this will help us review your article more quickly. If you submit the same article both electronically and in hard copy, please indicate this in your cover letter and your e-mail. Hard copies and other non-electronic correspondence should be addressed to: Boston College Law School Attn: Boston College Law Review 885 Centre Street Newton, MA 02459-1163
Further GuidelinesPlease submit the following items along with your article:
- Cover letter that references the article’s title, briefly describes the article, and contains the author’s name, affiliation, and full contact information (including phone number and e-mail address); and
- Resume, bio, or brief curriculum vitae.
Expedited ReviewIf your article has received a formal offer of publication from another journal, we will make every effort to comply with a request for expedited review. Again, we prefer that you use Scholastica's expedited review function for such requests. You may, however, request expedited review by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the phrase “expedited review” in the subject line. Regardless of the method you use to request expedited review, we require all of the following information:
- Your name and contact information;
- The title of your article;
- The source of the competing offer(s); and
- Your deadline.
