Short Reports & Summaries, Forum (Comments)

The International Journal of Law, Language & Discourse accepts Short Reports and Summaries, as well as Comments (in a Forum).

These sections attract two categories of written work:

  • Reports on recent developments in society and the academia, such as conferences and other events. Reports should cover all the highlights and the key topics that were addressed at a conference or an event. Note that scholarly references are not necessary for conference reports. Summaries, such as preliminary versions of papers (e.g., providing the results of a pilot study) are also acceptable. The latter should include scholarly references. There is no word minimum or maximum, typically reports and summaries run from 1,200 to 3,000 words.
  • Comments (Forum – responses to previous IJLLD papers or a forum topic paper) offering different perspectives on the same topic (collegial discussions of forum participants). Comments should include some scholarly citations and references. There is no word minimum or maximum, typically comments run from 2,500 to 3,000 words.

Please communicate with the Section Editor prior to submission. reports@ijlld.com

Also note that IJLLD does not use footnotes and discourages endnotes in favor of the APA-style in-text citation (with a list of References).
