The Faculty of Law of Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez invites contributors to submit their manuscripts to Latin American Legal Studies (LALS).
LALS is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal.
Contributions must be sent in Word format (.doc or .docx) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the online submission service available at the journal's website. The manuscripts will not exceed a total of 9.000 words, including footnotes, excluding bibliography. Longer articles will be exceptionally accepted. The manuscripts must comply with the editorial norms.
The articles are reviewed by the Editorial Team, which will assess whether the article is pertinent to the journal, and its potential impact. This decision will be informed to the author within 1 or 2 weeks of the submission of the article.
If accepted, the article will be sent to two reviewers, who will assess the article's scientific quality. The final decision to accept or reject the article will belong to the Editorial Team, in coordination with the journal's Editorial Board. Typically, decisions are informed within 6 weeks after submission of the article.
Once accepted, the article will be translated into English (if the manuscript is written in Spanish), or into Spanish (if the manuscript is written in English). The translation will be made by professional translators, fully funded by the journal.
