Pace Environmental Law Review Announces Goes to Peer-Review

I just got this announcement, which will be of interest to readers who publish in topics related to environmental law:

Established in 1982, PELR was one of the first scholarly environmental law
journals.  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.  Exclusive submission not required. 

We invite authors to submit articles either via ExpressO or directly in either
MSWord or PDF format to the PELR Development & Acquisitions Editor at
pelracq@law.pace.edu.

For more information, please visit the website at http://www.law.pace.edu/pelr

I'm a fan of peer review, and I hope this experiment works well.  I'm a little surprised that they are not requiring exclusive submission, and will be interested to see how this works for them.
