The German Law Journal has a proud and successful tradition of publishing timely and innovative special issues. Some of these have become standard works in their respective areas of research. The Journal’s board often develops these. But each year the Journal also publishes one or two special issues that have been curated by external, guest editors. Many of these are publications following a conference and are much more widely read than edited collections by publishers. We particularly encourage the submission of special issue proposals which engage with cutting edge research within the ambit of German, European, Comparative, and International law and advance the dynamic, and increasingly meaningful, fields of transnational legal scholarship.
While we have always found the collaboration with guest editors to be invigorating and mutually beneficial, we now we receive many more special issue proposals than we are able to publish. So that our selection and development of the special issues we publish has the greatest possible integrity—ensuring both the highest quality for our readers and the best possible experience for our guest editors—we have coordinated our review of proposals into a single process to be completed well ahead of the year in which the selected projects will publish. This gives us the time we need to carefully consider the proposals. It also allows us to work closely with the guest editors to ensure that the content of these special issues meets the Journal’s high standard for quality.
The next deadline for submission of special issue proposals is:
