The Peter McMullin Centre on Statelessness at Melbourne Law School and the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion (ISI) are pleased to announce the establishment of a new online journal: The Statelessness and Citizenship Review. This is the first journal to be entirely dedicated to advancing the understanding of statelessness and related citizenship phenomena and challenges, helping to meet the growing demand for the exchange of ideas and knowledge among scholars in the blossoming field of statelessness studies. The Editors-in-Chief are Prof. Michelle Foster (Peter McMullin Centre) and Dr. Laura van Waas (ISI).
The Statelessness and Citizenship Review is a peer-reviewed, open-access and interdisciplinary journal. Papers submitted to the journal will undergo independent and anonymous peer review, with an Editorial Board composed of renowned international scholars (see below). There are no fees for authors or readers, Creative Commons Attribution and authors retain Copyright of published articles. The journal will be published on a bi-annual basis. The submission deadline for the inaugural issue is 1 October 2018. Articles should be 8,000 -10,000 words in length (incl. footnotes), though longer pieces of up to 12,000 words can also be accommodated. Articles should follow the OSCOLA citation system.
In addition to original, scholarly articles that have passed successfully through the peer review process, each issue of the Review will also contain a section of “Case Notes” that offers summaries and comment on significant jurisprudence from around the globe (edited by Dr. Katia Bianchini) and a section entitled “Critique & Comment” that will feature reflections by scholars or practitioners on emerging research, policy trends or other new developments (edited by Dr. Kristy Belton).Please note that the main difference between a case note, a comment, and an article is the breadth of the subject matter covered. Please see submission guidelines for more information.
