The SCRIPTed management team are pleased to announce that we have introduced a blog section to our website, to allow for legal researchers at any stage in their career to share their ideas on recent developments in their field. We welcome submissions in a variety of formats, including, but not limited to: analysis of recent developments in law, technology and society; case comments; book reviews; and conference reports. Any blog submissions or queries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guidelines for Submission
We have very few criteria for blog submission, so that we may enable the free-flow and communication of authors’ ideas. We do, however, ask that your submission be:
- Between 500 and 1000 words long (including references);
- Fully referenced, and follow our footnote guidelines;
- Not published elsewhere, or in consideration for publication elsewhere;
- Written in English;
- Topical (i.e. concerning recent developments in your chosen topic); and
- Within the ambit of SCRIPTed (law, technology and society).
Submissions that do not follow these guidelines shall not be considered for publication.
We have no formatting guidelines for blog submissions, but please note by submitting a blog to SCRIPTed the article might be formatted by our Technical Editor in order to conform with other texts on our website.
Review and Publication
Blog submissions shall be reviewed by one of our Editorial Board. We anticipate that the review process will take 2-4 weeks. Blog submissions shall be simply ‘accepted’ or ‘rejected’, if any major modifications are deemed necessary it shall not be accepted for publication in the first instance.
If accepted, the submission will be sent back to the author for approval of any spelling or grammatical changes made before publishing it on the SCRIPTed website. Formal feedback shall not be provided for any blog submissions.
SCRIPTed are happy to include links to academic profiles, academic works, and social media pages, where appropriate, at the request of the author.
