The European Centre of Tort and Insurance Law (
ECTIL) and the Institute for European Tort Law (ETL) of the Austrian Academyof Sciences are pleased to announce the launch of their new official journal, the Journal of European Tort Law (JETL), which will be published by the distinguished house of de Gruyter ( ). The JETL is the first law review to be dedicated to this important and dynamic area of European private law. It aims to contribute to the analysis and development of tort law in Berlin Europeby the publication of scholarly articles, comments and reviews. Its focus is primarily comparative, but it will also publish analyses of the tort law of single legal systems where the subject matter is of sufficient interest to the Journal’s general readership. Comparative analyses of non-European systems from the perspective of European tort law will also appear from time to time. The Journal embraces all scholarly perspectives, including economic analysis of law and socio-legal studies. Its subject matter is both substantive tort law, including its place in the general law of obligations, and the wider tort system, including its practical operation and its relationship with such institutions as private and social insurance.
The Journal will be published three times a year. Issue 1 will be published in March 2010. The General Editor is Professor Ken Oliphant, Director of ETL. Professor Helmut Koziol, Director of ECTIL, will act as Honorary Editor in Chief. Further information is available here.
Blog readers with relevant research interests are encouraged to consider publishing in the Journal.
