  • Manuscripts in the form of articles, notes, case discussions, book reviews and letters of a legal nature are welcomed by the editorial board.
  • The submission of a manuscript for publication implies that it’s the result of original research by the author and that copyright vests in him or her.  The editorial board has to be timely notified if the author wishes to submit a manuscript partially or in its entirety to another publication or if it has been published previously.
  • Authors are responsible for the linguistic, content and technical editing of their submissions.  The editorial board upholds the right to improve and edit submissions on stylistic and presentational grounds.
  • Submissions are reviewed by members of the editorial board, the editorial advisory committee and knowledgeable arbiters.  If a manuscript does not comply with standards set by the editorial board and advisory committee with regard to linguistic, content-based or technical standards, it is sent back to authors for reworking, if possible.
