4. Information for Submitting Articles to Law Reviews & Journals
by Allen Rostron (University of Missouri at Kansas City – School of Law) and Nancy Levit (University of Missouri at Kansas City – School of Law)

Allen Rostron
Compared to most other academic fields, law has an enormous number of scholarly journals. And in contrast to many of other fields, doing simultaneous submissions to multiple law journals is the standard practice. As a result, submitting articles to law reviews can be a perplexing endeavor for those who are new to it. Even for those who are veterans of the process, it can be quite time consuming to gather information about the submission requirements and preferences of a large number of journals. And so, for the past several years, my colleague Nancy Levit and I have gathered information from law journals’ websites and assembled it into a chart to assist those submitting law review articles. We update the chart twice a year, just before the peak submission periods begin (in the early Spring and late Summer). Our hope is that sharing this information through SSRN makes life a little easier for law professors and others who write articles for law reviews, and we’re pleased to know that it’s become widely used.
