You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers.
Am I eligible to write an article for this law review?
We welcome everyone to submit their manuscript, but articles that are published will be chosen based on the overall quality determined by internal and external reviewers.
Am I allowed to write on any topic I like?
Since CRELDA focuses on the development of law in Asia, the topics that you are required to write about must be in relation to any Asian legal jurisdiction.
However, you are allowed to make a comparative analysis between jurisdictions outside of Asia.
Can I just resubmit an assignment for this?
You can repurpose an assignment, as long as it is well researched and not plagiarized.
However, take into account the requirements expected of you: a longer word count and certain extra sections (abstract, keywords, research methodology). Details on these can be found within the guidelines.
What if I get rejected? Does that mean that I'm a bad author?
No, rejection probably means you have yet to hone the necessary skills needed to prepare manuscripts for journals.
You can improve by attempting to go through all comments of reviewers and make the necessary changes.
You can then update the article and either re-submit in the next call for papers or submit at another student journal.
Participating in conferences will also help you improve your manuscript.
