The Gonzaga Journal of International Law is seeking and accepting article submissions.
The Gonzaga Journal of International Law seeks to publish original scholarship on international law, international human rights, and other foreign law issues. We welcome submissions from professors, practitioners, and distinguished students.
We accept submissions online through ExpressO and via our Managing Editor’s email at: MGraham@LawSchool.Gonzaga.edu
Submit via Regular Mail
If you are not able to submit electronically, we will accept submissions via regular mail. We strongly prefer that submissions by regular mail include an electronic copy on a CD or thumb drive.
Please send these submissions to:
Gonzaga Journal of International Law prefers articles of 35,000 words or less, including footnotes. Longer articles will still be considered and may be published upon GJIL Editor-In-Chief’s approval.
All articles must be submitted in English. The article’s text should be double-spaced, the footnotes may be single spaced, and the footnotes should conform with The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (19th ed.). Authors should be prepared to supply any cited sources upon request.
Articles submissions must include an appropriately formatted cover page and reasonably assembled table of contents. Articles lacking a cover page or table of contents will not be read and will not be submitted to the editorial board for approval. Article abstracts are not required but they are very strongly encouraged.
Submissions and offers of publication are reviewed on a rolling basis. Therefore, please submit your articles as soon as possible.
In certain limited cases, we can expedite a submitted article if the author is facing pending response deadlines from other publishers that have preliminarily accepted the article. To request an expedited review, please send an email directly to MGraham@LawSchool.Gonzaga.edu. (Please include “Request for Expedited Review” and the article’s title in the subject line.)
Please provide the following information in your correspondence:
- Author’s name and contact information (phone and email);
- Article title with a very short summary of article’s topic;
- Journals that have accepted the article with pending deadlines; and
- The latest possible date the author can be given a decision.
The GJIL Managing Editor and Articles Editors will carefully review your article once it is received. Upon recommendation of the Managing Editor, the GJIL Executive Board will meet and make a final decision regarding publication. Typically, Gonzaga Law School faculty advisors are consulted on the evaluation of articles but do not necessarily read them. Once an article has been selected, the Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor will contact the author with a contract and further information on the publication process.
We look forward to reviewing your submissions. Thank you.
