Focus and Scope

The journal Frontiers of Legal Research publishes articles on any topic of legal scholarship relating to international, comparative law, and legal theory. The FLR aims at becoming a platform for showing developments of law in Canadian, European and international jurisprudence and creates possibilities for communications from different legal systems. A strict and rigorous anonymous peer-review procedure ensures the quality and equal standing of articles submitted by professors, practitioners or students, and a distinctive linguistic policy and expertise gives authors the opportunity to publish their papers in English.

Journal Editors

We ask editors to make every reasonable effort to ensure the following criteria are taken into account for those submitted manuscripts they deem worthy of consideration by peer review.

A Journal Editor should give unbiased consideration to each manuscript submitted for consideration for publication, and should judge each on its merits, without regard to race, religion, nationality, sex, seniority, or institutional affiliation of the author(s).

A Journal Editor has sole responsibility for the acceptance or the rejection of a submitted manuscript.

A Journal Editor may reject a submitted manuscript without resort to formal peer review if she or he considers the manuscript to be inappropriate for the Journal and outside its scope.

A Journal Editor should make all reasonable effort to process submitted manuscripts in an efficient and timely manner.

The Journal Editor, Associate Editors, and members of the Editorial Board should treat the peer review process as entirely confidential, and neither the submitted manuscript, nor information about the submitted manuscript, nor correspondence related to their peer review should be shared or circulated to any person not engaged in the peer review process.

The Journal Editor should arrange for responsibility for the peer review of any manuscript authored by her- or himself to be delegated to an Associate Editor. Any data or analysis presented in a submitted manuscript should not be used in a Journal Editor's own research except with the consent of the author.

If a Journal Editor is presented with convincing evidence that a submitted article is under consideration elsewhere, or has already been published, then the Journal Editor may reject the article forthwith, and, in consultation with CSCanada, reserve the right to impose sanctions on the submitting author.

If a Journal Editor is presented with convincing evidence that the main substance or conclusions of an article published in the Journal are erroneous, then, in consultation with CSCanada, the Journal Editor should facilitate publication of an appropriate Corrigendum or Erratum.

A Journal Editor who is in receipt of a Letter which offers evidence that the substance of, or sections within, a published article, are erroneous, may consider publication of the Letter as a Comment, to which the author may offer a Response, and the Commentator a Rejoinder. The Journal Editor should subject all Comments, Responses, and rejoinders to peer review.

If a Journal Editor is presented with convincing evidence that an article is under consideration by another Journal, or has been previously published, then the Journal Editor may reject the article forthwith, and, in consultation with CSCanada, reserve the right to impose sanctions on the submitting author.

If a Journal Editor is presented with convincing evidence that an article or parts of an article reproduce text, tables, or figures which are copyrighted to a third party, but which have not been quoted, cited, or acknowledged in the article, then, in consultation with CSCanada, the Journal Editor should facilitate a Retraction of the article, and, in consultation with CSCanada, reserve the right to impose sanctions on the author.
