The Review seeks and encourages original submissions from judges, lawyers, academics, scientists and technicians; students in relation to postgraduate degree work and versions of dissertations, where the student has passed the relevant course and the dissertation has been marked. The IT industry, certification authorities, registration authorities and suppliers of software and hardware are also encouraged to engage in the debate by submitting articles and items of news.
The length of an article can vary. There is no fixed length. The aim is to publish articles of good quality that add to the debate and knowledge of readers, discuss recent developments and offer practical advice. All articles will be in English, and contributors are requested to write using shorter, rather than longer sentences, because the audience is international.
Submissions should be sent as an attachment to an e-mail addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. All papers are peer reviewed.
Submissions should be in plain word format with no linking of any description in the document, preferably Times New Roman font, size 12, with an interval of 1.5 between each line. Please indicate the level of headings by placing the level in brackets after each heading, as follows: Main heading (A or 1), First sub-heading (B or 2), Second sub-heading (C or 3).
The author should include a brief summary about the content of the paper (70 - 100 words) together with between 4 - 6 index words.
Where references are included, please use footnotes. Do not use endnotes. Try to keep notes to a minimum. Please do not cross reference any reference in a footnote. If you refer to the same reference in subsequent footnotes, repeat the original reference. Please follow the Modern Humanities Research Association Style Guide for citations, (2008) as follows:
References for books [11.2.2, example (iv) is preferred, pp 51-54]
Chapters or articles in books [11.2.3, example (ii) is preferred, pp 54-56]
Articles in journals [11.2.4, example (ix) is preferred, p 56]
Articles in newspapers and magazines [11.2.5, p 58]
On-line publications [22.214.171.124, pp 60-62]
Please refrain from using any Latin tags. Only use Latin where it is not possible to use any other word. This is because Latin is not used in some jurisdictions, and the Latin used in one legal system is often different from the Latin used in another legal system.
Authors are requested to avoid culturally bound clichés, literary and cultural metaphors, colloquial language, and language that is misplaced, especially language used by the military or in relation to war, such as ‘battle’, ‘combat’, ‘fight’, ‘deploy’:it is offensive to those who are killed and injured in battle to use the language of war and killing when writing about topics that have no link with military activities.
