IJCLP is a journal of user, reader and contributor interaction,
not of record (official policy and legislative statements are
in any case hyperlinked). It does not seek to supplant paper dissemination
IJCLP is a journal of inclusive discourse: copyright constraints
are limited to the good academic practice of non-plagiarism and
accreditation. Articles appearing in IJCLP can be anticipated
to later appear in paper format, where copyright will rest. In
IJCLP, copyright rests with the author.
IJCLP encourages innovatory writing, rather than standardised
strictures. It is however rigorous in its application of reviewing:
recycled and 'reheated' conceptualising will not be published.
It is intended to create an environment of concentrated innovation
which time constraints render impossible in the paper environment.
will not permit non-referenced contributions, or tacitly condone non-attribution.
The editors expressly encourage hyperlinking to current policy sources.
Citations in law pieces should conform to the latest edition of 'The
Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. For non-legal pieces, the
IJCLP will adhere to the APA style.
The editors will endeavour to deliver a manuscript via review,
editing and copyediting in 4-6 weeks. This presumes that the article
is delivered initially in publishable form. All exchange in the
publishing cycle will be undertaken by e-mail to expedite delivery.
Deadlines are therefore one month following the current issue,
for the following issue.
