The Advisory Board of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Human Rights Law is actively seeking book reviews for the forthcoming issue of the journal. The IJHRL is an annual, peer-reviewed scholarly journal published by the Council for American Students in International Negotiations. The journal invites quality submissions from scholars, jurists, and professionals in fields related to human rights. Occasionally, exceptional student work will be accepted. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, with preference given to those received before July 15, 2011 for the upcoming issue.
Book reviews may run from 1,000 to 2,500 words in length and should review books dealing with a topic relating to human rights that have been published in late 2010-2011. We also accept reviews of other forms of published media. All submissions must be computer generated in MS Word and submitted electronically in .doc format via e-mail, and should also contain a resume and appropriate contact information, as well as a cover letter to the editor assuring that the review has not been submitted or published elsewhere. Please cite sources in standard American legal format according to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation.
Submissions are subject to external, double-blind peer review. Additionally, authors are encouraged to seek comments on their manuscripts from colleagues within their discipline. Notification of acceptance, rejection or need for revision will be given within approximately 6-8 weeks of receipt of manuscript. Submissions and other editorial correspondence should be addressed to email@example.com. For more information, please visit our website at http://www.americanstudents.us/journals/ijhrl/
