Q: How do I clear manuscripts that I don’t want to publish out of my Scholastica queue?We (and the authors who are submitting to you) strongly recommend that you make decisions on every submission your receive. Not only does making decisions on papers as you go make it easier to tell what articles still need your attention, it also helps authors plan their submissions better which in turn, makes you a favorite among law authors.
Q: How do I get submissions on Scholastica?Authors choose the specific law reviews that they would like to consider their paper. So if an article shows up in your manuscript table, that’s because the author submitted it to you and would like you to consider publishing it!
Q: How do I alert authors that we’re looking for submissions, or looking for papers on a particular topic?There are two ways your law review can notify authors via Scholastica:
- Posting in The Conversation on Scholastica
- Tweeting using the #LRSubmissions hashtag
Tweet your call for submissions @scholasticahq using the #LRSubmissions hashtag and we’ll retweet it!
