International Environmental Law-making and Diplomacy
Editorial process and peer-review
All papers published in the Review undergo a rigorous editorial process (which process includes careful scrutiny and research by the editors, numerous rewrites, and approval for publication only after consideration by the Board). Each paper is read several times by each of the editors, and returned several times to the authors for rewriting and the addressing of queries. By the time a paper is published in the Review the editors and the editorial board are satisfied that it meets all that could be expected of it in terms of formal presentation and high academic standards, and that it makes a genuine contribution both to the special theme and to knowledge generally.
While convinced of the quality of all of the papers in the Review, the editors introduced for the 2012 volume an anonymous peer-review process where authors requested this.
The articles on the Reviews are based on lectures given during the Courses. On each Course, the lectures were delivered by experienced hands-on diplomats, government officials and members of academia.
