Advice to Law Journals, Part 14
14 allow authors to submit pieces in any way they’d like; don’t limit to expresso or snail mail or email.
Law journals need to get good pieces into their offices in whatever way possible. It is self-defeating to be limiting the routes they might arrive. Articles editors--and the deans who provide the financial support for their pieces--ought to accept submissions any way possible, from courier to overnight mail, snail mail, email, and in any format--wordperfect, pdf, word, whatever. I'm astonished that reviews won't accept submissions via wordperfect through bepress.
Endnote: The Theodore Horydczak image of a row of mailboxes is from our friends at the Library of Congress.
