Nancy Levit and Alan Rostron at UMKC report that they have just updated their charts about law journal submissions, expedites, and rankings from different sources for the fall 2013 submission season covering the 203 main journals of each law school.
The highlights from this round of revisions include:
1) The list of law reviews is now up from 202 to 203 with the addition of a brand new law review, and for the first time it includes a law review that accepts submissions by Twitter. (The new law review is Belmont. The Twitter-friendly law review is Case Western Reserve.)
2) The chart now includes as much information as possible about what law reviews are not accepting submissions right now, what dates they say they'll resume accepting submissions, etc.
The first chart contains information about each journal’s preferences about methods for submitting articles (e.g., e-mail, ExpressO, Scholastica, or regular mail), as well as special formatting requirements and how to request an expedited review. The second chart contains rankings information from U.S. News and World Report, as well as data from Washington & Lee’s law review website.
