Dear Authors and Friends of the Pepperdine Law Review,
The Volume 41 Editorial Board is excited to announce that, beginning with the present editorial cycle, we will be transitioning to Scholastica to manage our article submissions process.
Though we will continue to accept direct submissions transmitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, we will strongly prefer submissions via Scholastica. And while we are not currently accepting submissions via ExpressO (and have no plans to), we will announce any changes in that regard.
Information on how to submit via Scholastica, including information on how to create a personal account for article submissions, how your institution can create an account to fund submissions, and how you can apply for a fee waiver, can be found at https://scholasticahq.com/law_reviews.
We are confident that the Scholastica system provides the most seamless and satisfying law review submission process, from the perspective of authors and journal editors alike, and we sincerely look forward to receiving your submissions this year.
The Pepperdine Law Review will open submissions for Volume 41 on Thursday, February 21, 2013.
Lead Articles Editors, Volume 41
Here is a letter from the St. Thomas Law Review seeking submissions:
I hope this finds you well. My name is Christian Garcia and I am the Articles Solicitation Editor for the St. Thomas Law Review, the primary scholarly journal at St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami, Florida. The St. Thomas Law Review is partnering once again with the Criminal Law Section of the Florida Bar to publish one issue in our 25th anniversary volume focused solely on the area of criminal law.
The Criminal Law Issue will showcase articles on relevant and developing legal issues in criminal law and criminal procedure. We plan to publish this issue at the end of the spring semester of 2013, and we are currently seeking another article to complete this issue. Specifically, we are looking for scholarly articles and essays addressing new and novel criminal law issues written by scholars, practitioners, and professors, such as yourself.
The St. Thomas Law Review would like to invite you to submit an article or essay you have written in the field of criminal law or criminal procedure for our consideration. Because our journal is committed to getting this issue to print before the end of the current school year, I would ask that you please submit your scholarship by Wednesday, February 20, 2013. Once you submit your piece to us, our Executive Board will review your article and consider it for publication in our Criminal Law Issue.
Finally, if you know of any scholars, professors, or practitioners that would like to have their work considered for publication in the St. Thomas Law Review’s Criminal Law Issue, I would ask that you please forward this message to them and ask that they contact us at their earliest convenience.
If you would like more information regarding this opportunity, please direct your response to my email at email@example.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Nancy Levit and Allen Rostron have updated their charts about law journal submissions, expedites and rankings from different sources for the Spring 2013 submission season for the 202 flagship journals of each law school.
The highlights of this update are as follows:
- First, there has been movement toward Scholastica and the charts track which law reviews prefer Scholastica or exclusively accept through that channel.
- Second, the chart now includes, where available, information about when journals are open to receive articles—i.e. the opening date for the submission season.
The first chart contains information about each journal’s preferences about methods for submitting articles (e.g., ExpressO, Scholastica, email, or regular mail), as well as special formatting requirements and how to request an expedited review. The second chart contains rankings information from U.S. News and World Report as well as data from Washington & Lee’s law review website.

Here is a message from the UC Davis Law Review announcing their move to Scholastica:
Dear UC Davis Law Review authors and friends,
The UC Davis Law Review is excited to announce that we will be transitioning to a new article submission service. When we resume reviewing manuscripts on February 19, we will accept submissions through Scholastica (www.scholasticahq.com). We will no longer accept them through ExpressO.
Institutions can create accounts to pay for their authors’ submissions to Scholastica, so authors affiliated with law schools will have the same payment experience they have had on ExpressO. Scholastica is committed to ensuring that authors are able to submit articles regardless of institutional support and will consider requests for fee waivers and other accommodations (firstname.lastname@example.org). Additional information about Scholastica is available at www.scholasticahq.com/law_reviews.
We hope you will give us the opportunity to review your submissions this spring.
