Dear BLPB Readers:
"The American Business Law Journal (ABLJ) is currently accepting submissions for Volume 61 (2024).
The ABLJ is a faculty-edited, triple blind, peer-reviewed journal, continuously published since 1963. The journal is ranked #4 in the 2022 Washington & Lee Law Journal Rankings for journals in Business, Corporations and Securities Law, and #2 among all refereed journals. It is ranked as an “A” journal by the Australian Business Deans Council.Our mission is to publish only top quality law review articles that make a scholarly contribution to all areas of law that impact business theory and practice, either U.S. or comparative in scope. We search for those articles that articulate a novel research question and make a meaningful contribution directly relevant to scholars and practitioners of business law. The blind peer-review process means legal scholars well-versed in the relevant specialty area have determined selected articles are original, thorough, important, and timely, and peer editors provide expert feedback and support throughout the editorial process. In particular, our editors are looking for articles that explore contemporary legal topics with direct impact on business and commerce, including: --equality and discrimination in the workplace of the future --speech in the workplace --the future of the administrative state --technology and privacy --healthcare of the future and bioethics --the Metaverse --insolvency and SMEs --alternative currencies --the impact of AI on work and healthcare
The ABLJ is published quarterly. Articles should be between 16,000 and 20,000 words (inclusive of footnotes). We do not accept notes (student articles), book reviews, or essays.
Authors may submit their manuscripts and CVs/resumes through Scholastica or directly via email to Robert Landry, Managing Editor at [email protected]. We strongly encourage ALSB members to submit their articles outside of the normal law review submission time periods to allow more time for our review to take place and to receive feedback from peer editors. That is, we encourage you to submit from October through January, and April through July.
For more information on submissions, please review Author Guidelines information on the ABLJ Wiley website."
