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 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.

I addition to the articles related to the topic of the Special Issue, authors are also invited to submit contributions falling under one of the following rubrics of the CYIL:The CYIL took inspiration in similar foreign publications.

  • V. Review of books
  • VI. Bibliography (Survey of journals)
