Faculty Scholarship

The purpose of this guide is to assist Law School faculty in the production of their scholarship. The guide discusses topic selection, the submission process, the dissemination of scholarship, and copyright.

Introduction

Although there is no one source that can answer all the questions that arise in this decision making process, the following provide an excellent overview of the law journal article submission process.

  •  Allen K. Rostron & Nancy Levit, Information for Submitting Articles to Law Reviews & Journals (SSRN - updated regularly).
  •  Allen K. Rostron & Nancy Levit, Scholarship Advice for New Law Professors in the Electronic Age (SSRN - 2006).
  •  Allen K. Rostron et al., Submission of Law Student Articles for Publication (SSRN - updated regularly).

Submission Services

ExpressO

This electronic document delivery service developed by Berkely Electronic Press provides submission of articles to multiple journals and law reviews.  Even journals that do not currently receive electronic submission may be contacted through this service (for an additional fee).  Please note that The Catholic University currently maintains an institutional subscription to ExpressO, thereby allowing all faculty members to submit their articles using this service. 

Scholastica

Scholastica offers a submission service to a number of law journals and non-law journals. Please note that The Catholic University currently maintains an institutional subscription to Scholastica, thereby allowing all faculty members to submit their articles using this service.  Faculty may request an email invite to Scholastica by contacting Mary Strouse.

 Please contact Beth Edinger if you have questions about either of these services.
