  Add to Calendar 2020-10-20 11:00 2020-10-20 13:00 Europe/Paris Editing a Law Journal Seminar

Understanding the art of editing can be very helpful for strengthening one’s own writing. This seminar takes researchers through the entire editorial process of a law journal. What makes for an interesting article? What are the different characteristics of leading journals across the world? What works and what does not work for communicating an idea? Who gets cited, and who does not, and why? How can one write a constructive peer review report? How does one respond to a critical peer reviewer? What material is for an article, what for a blog and what for a tweet? Thanks to close collaboration with the European Journal of International Law (EJIL) researchers will be able to address these questions by gaining hands-on experience in a leading law journal, meanwhile shaping the production of international legal knowledge. Researchers will also be formally recognized by EJIL for their contributions to the editorial process.

The seminar is open to all researchers interested in public international law and allied fields of enquiry.
