Call for papers for Volume 7 of the Czech Yearbook of Public & Private International Law (published by the Czech Society of International Law)
The Czech Yearbook of Public & Private International Law is a scholarly publication of the Czech Society of International Law, acting in cooperation with the Czech Branch of the International Law Association.
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 the SCOPUS database.
According to models of other major foreign yearbooks, the CYIL 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 CYIL took inspiration in similar foreign publications. Therefore the CYIL has adopted the following structure:
- I. Studies
- II. Short articles, comments and discussion
- III. Case-law
- IV. Czech practice relating to international law
- V. Review of books
- VI. Bibliography (Survey of journals)
This structure is without prejudice to a thematic section (Symposium), including articles on a subject selected by the Editors. The Yearbook appears both in printed (paper) and in Internet version.
The deadline for the submission is Monday 30 May 2016. The recommended length of articles is 10 to 15 pages in English, including summary (in Czech or another language) the recommended style OSCOLA, Times New Roman font, line-spacing 1.5. We also welcome shorter comments, information and book reviews. The CYIL is a peer-reviewed journal. The submitted manuscripts can be accepted, refused or sent for modification.
The CYIL, vol. 7 will be published in October 2016.
