Call for papers for Volume 9 of the Czech Yearbook of Public & Private International Law (published by the Czech Society of International Law):100 Years since the End of the WWI and the Creation of Czechoslovakia
The Czech Yearbook of Public & Private International Law invites contributions to its Special Issue reflecting upon the 100th anniversary of the end of the WWI and the creation of Czechoslovakia in 1918.
2018 is the year of several important anniversaries. We have selected the centennial, because the year 1918 brought about not only the creation of Czechoslovakia but also many changes in international law.
It is even sometimes claimed that this year marked the birth of modern international law. The Special Issue intends to reflect upon the international legal aspects of the events which occurred in 1918 and to consider the legacy that these events have, or have not, left in international law.
Authors both from the Czech Republic and from other countries are invited to submit their abstracts by 20 April 2018 and /full contributions by 1st June 2018.
The recommended length of articles is 10 to 18 pages (Times New Roman font, line-spacing 1.5). The articles should contain a short abstract in English, for the Czech speaking authors, also a short abstract in Czech (max. 10 lines for each of them). The recommended style is OSCOLA. Authors are also encouraged to follow the style of the previous issues of the journal.
The first volume appeared in September 2010. Since 2014, the Czech Yearbook has been included in the Czech index of scholarly peer-reviewed journals (RVVI). In 2015, it has been accepted for in the SCOPUS database.
The Yearbook appears both in printed (paper) and on-line version.
According to models of other major foreign yearbooks, the CYIL access focuses on articles and comments on Public International Law, without precluding the possibility to submit contributions dealing with Private International Law and European Law.

The German Yearbook of International Law is Germany’s oldest yearbook in the field of public international law. The GYIL is published annually by the Walther Schücking Institute for International Law at the University of Kiel and contains contributions on topics addressing all aspects of public international law. We aim to provide a platform for scholars of international law – both inside and outside Germany –to publish new research advancing public international legal discourse as well as analysis of current issues.
The Yearbook features a ‘Forum’ section for which prominent scholars are invited to enter into discussion on newly developing topics in international law and a ‘Focus’ section for which a group of experts are invited to write articles examining in‐depth various aspects of a topic chosen in advance by the editors. The GYIL also publishes English‐language summaries of exceptional German doctoral and post-doctoral theses in the fields of public international law and European law.
The General Articles section of the GYIL is open to submissions from the entire academic community and is independently peer‐reviewed by a board of renowned experts. All work submitted will be scrutinised based on its intellectual quality and its advancement of academic discourse. The Editors welcome submissions for volume 61 (2018) of the GYIL, inviting interested parties to submit contributions for consideration for inclusion in the forthcoming edition.
The paper should be 10,000 ‐ 12,500 words inclusive of footnotes and conform with the house style of the GYIL (which is available on our website).
Submissions, including a brief abstract, statement of affiliation, and confirmation of exclusive submission, should be sent by 1 September 2018 to the Assistant Editors of the GYIL via e‐mail: firstname.lastname@example.org‐kiel.de.
