Via Feminist Law Professors Blog, by Bridget Crawford, Pace Environmental Law Review announced it will shift to peer review.
As of August 1, 2009, Pace Environmental Law Review (PELR) will use a new Peer Review process to select articles for publication. Submissions will be reviewed internally and then forwarded to a select group of Peer Reviewers – academics, practitioners, and experts in the field, including members of Pace Law School’s world-renowned environmental law faculty. The Peer Review process will offer new and distinctive opportunities to foster continued debate and reflection upon some of the most pressing topics within the field of environmental law. Articles selected for publication will benefit from:
- Expedited editorial processing of 8 to 10 weeks from acceptance
- Single-article hard copy publication
- Inclusion in a bound volume distributed to PELR’s wide-ranging list of subscribers
- All articles submitted to PELR must be original scholarship and not previously published.Established in 1982, PELR was one of the first scholarly environmental law journals. We invite authors to submit articles either via ExpressO or directly in either MSWord or PDF format to the PELR Development & Acquisitions Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
