The Arbitration Workshop – Call for Blogs – Rolling Submissions

 

 

The Board of Editors at the Arbitration Workshop are pleased to announce the call for submissions for the Arbitration Workshop Blog. The Blog invites all kinds of unpublished and original submissions, intending to provide in-depth investigations of the most important current issues in international arbitration.

 

We are also delighted to share that the Arbitration Workshop Blog has been recognised and ranked amongst the top 25 Arbitration Law Blogs by Feedspot. By the latest ranking 2022, we have been ranked 7th out of the top 25 arbitration blogs.

 

If you wish to submit your post at the Arbitration Workshop, please send them to thearbitrationworkshop@gmail.com.

 

Submission Guidelines

Authorship

Co-authorship of up to two authors is allowed. Exceptions, however, can be made in certain cases up to a maximum of 3 authors.

Please provide a brief biographical note, including both the current affiliation as well as the email address of the author(s) in the first footnote of the manuscript itself.

 

Length

The word limit for the manuscript should be between 1000 to 5000 words. We believe in giving the contributors a broad spectrum to showcase their work. Some people express their thoughts in a few words, while others like detailed and extensive research. Hence, the Blog is flexible with the word limit.

 

Originality

All works must be original and unpublished. Any form of plagiarism will lead to disqualification for publication on the Blog.


Headings

Authors are encouraged to use headings to break up long posts. Headings should not be of more than one level and should be in bold.

 

Font and spacing

The title of the post should be formatted to Garamond font size 14 and in bold. The main body of the text should be formatted to Garamond font size 12 with 1.5 line spacing.

 

Referencing

All references must be in the form of hyperlinks in the body of the submission. Hyperlinks should be provided to all supporting materials and legal texts for the benefit of the readers. In case no hyperlink is available for any reference, the use of endnotes is recommended. Speaking endnotes or footnotes must be avoided. The cases mentioned in the footnote have to also be written in full in the main body of the manuscript.

 

Submissions

Submissions must be in a Word format (‘.doc’ or ‘.docx’). Ensure that the title of the document has been renamed to the title of the post. All submissions shall be made through email at thearbitrationworkshop@gmail.com.

 

Review Process and Editorial Policy

  1. All the manuscripts will go through a double-blind review.

  2. The review process of each manuscript may take up to 10 days, though the Board of Editors shall endeavour to respond to the author(s) within a week.

  3. Please note that the Board will directly provide the decision to accept or reject the manuscript. The amendments and suggestions, if any, shall be communicated to the authors at the earliest.

  4. The Blog at its discretion may also add a footnote at the end of the manuscript that “the views expressed by the author are not endorsed by the Blog”.

 

Copyright

The contributors shall submit original unpublished articles for consideration for the Blog. In case they want the blog to consider articles already published before, it will be their responsibility to take adequate permissions once the blog is desirous of republishing the article. Final approval of the authors will be taken before we publish the articles. Once the authors agree it would tacitly warrant “Consent to Publish and Grant of Exclusive License” and represent that their contribution does not contain infringing, libellous, obscene or other unlawful matter. Authors are allowed to post their articles on public websites such as SSRN subject to explicit written permission from the Editors.
