Submission Guidelines for Journal of National Law University Delhi

  1. All editorial correspondence should be addressed to the administrator at https://peerreview.sagepub.com/jnl. Manuscripts must be in English and should be submitted via the peer-review and submission system. The preferred lengths for submissions are as follows –
    i.  Articles: 6000–8000 words;
    ii. Notes/Comments: 3000–4000 words;
    iii. Book Reviews: 1500–2500 words.
        The articles should also include an abstract (200–250 words).
     
  2. Contributors must provide a separate Title Page containing the manuscript title, names, affiliations, email address, and complete postal address of all the contributing authors.
     
  3. During the submission, the contributors must also submit a cover letter with the following statements:
    a. I confirm that the citations in the attached manuscript are accurate;
    b. I confirm that I have read the submission policy and that my manuscript complies with the journal’s submission policy; and
    c. I confirm that any part of the manuscript does not violate copyright of others.
     
  4. Use ‘s’ spellings instead of ‘z’ spellings. This means that words ending with ‘-ize’, ‘ization’, etc.,will be spelt with ‘s’ (e.g., ‘recognise’, ‘organise’, ‘civilise’).
     
  5. Use British spellings in all cases rather than American spellings (hence, ‘programme’ not ‘program’, ‘labour’ not ‘labor’, and ‘centre’ and not ‘center’).
     
  6. Use single quotes throughout. Double quotes only to be used within single quotes. Spellings of words in quotations should not be changed. Quotations of 45 words or more should be separated from the text and indented with one space with a line space above and below.
     
  7. Use ‘twentieth century’, ‘1980s’. Spell out numbers from one to nine, 10 and above to remain in figures. However, for exact measurements, use only figures (3 km, 9 per cent, not %). Use thousands and millions, not lakhs and crores.
     
  8. Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimised, but used consistently. Tables and figures to be indicated by numbers separately (see Table 1), not by placement (see Table below). All figures and tables should be cited in the text. Source for figures and tables should be mentioned irrespective of whether or not they require permissions.
     
  9. All footnotes should use OSCOLA citation style.
     
  10. Book reviews must contain name of author/editor and book reviewed, place of publication, publisher, year of publication, number of pages and price.
     
  11. Once submitted, a manuscript goes through the following stages:
  • The Editorial Board makes an initial review of the manuscripts to check whether they are consistent with the submission guidelines and whether there are any obvious reasons to reject the manuscript (for example, if it does not fit well within the aims and scope of JNLUD).
     
  • Once the preliminary checks are done, the manuscript will be sent for peer-review, a stage which generally takes 3–4 weeks, but may take longer time in some cases. JNLUD follows the double-blind review process, meaning that the author does not get to know who reviews the manuscript and similarly, the reviewer does not know who wrote it
     
  • Depending upon the reviewers’ recommendations, the manuscript may be accepted, rejected or, provided a conditional acceptance (acceptance subject to the modification of the manuscript as per the comments received from the reviewers)
     
  • Once the Editorial Board decides to accept a manuscript, it will forward the manuscript to the publisher (SAGE Publications).
     
  • The production process at SAGE begins with the copyediting of the manuscript, following which queries (if any) identified by the Production Editor are sent to the Editor,who then forwards the query documents to the concerned authors. Queries could be about any missing information, ambiguous statements, or about missing citations and references in the article.
     
  • The Production Editor at SAGE works in close coordination with the Editorial Board of JNLUD and resolves queries with the authors. The clarifications sent by the authors are sent to the Production Editor who then incorporates the suggested corrections in the article.
     
  • Several rounds of quality-checking are done at the publisher’s end, during which the Production Editor may choose to send further queries (if necessary) to the authors through the Editor of JNLUD. The authors are shown the typeset proofs of their articles, so that they can review their articles and send corrections (if any), before the final version goes into print.
