Cambridge University Press has announced a new environmental law journal: Transnational Environmental Law.
The journal will begin publication in Spring 2012. The journal will be peer-reviewed and "strive to develop a new generation of environmental scholarship which bridges geographical, generational, disciplinary and academic-practitioner divides," according to an announcement.
Its editorial team includes:
- Thijs Etty, VU University Amsterdam (editor-in-chief)
- Veerle Heyvaert, London School of Economics (editor-in-chief)
- Cinnamon Carlarne, University of South Carolina
- Daniel Farber, UC Berkeley, Boalt Hall Law School
- Jolene Lin, Hong Kong University
- Joanne Scott, University College London
The journal's website is http://journals.cambridge.org/TEL.
And here is a bit on their submissions and publication policies:
The Editors of TEL warmly invite the submission of manuscripts from scholars, lawyers and professionals active in fields related to environmental law and governance. Prospective authors may also contact the Editors with proposals for planned submissions. The Editors will also consider revised versions of previously released working papers, provided that such publication is clearly acknowledged upon submission of the paper for consideration to TEL.
All contributions in the journal are peer-reviewed (double-blind), and will be evaluated on their:
• Analytical thoroughness
• Affinity with the mission and scope of the journal
• Conformity with the highest standard of scholarly presentation
TEL will strive to respect a turn-around time of under 6 weeks between receipt of the manuscript and notification of acceptance, rejection or need for revision. All accepted work will be scheduled for publication in print and online. To reduce time between acceptance and publication articles will appear online as FirstView publications in advance of their scheduled publication in print.
