Call for papers

The editors of Europe and the World: A law review are delighted to announce that their journal has been accepted into Scopus ( and the Directory of Open Access Journals ( index and invite papers for publication.

Europe and the World: A law review aims to contribute to legal scholarship on the place of Europe in the world, with a particular but by no means exclusive focus on EU external relations law. As a peer-reviewed open-access journal by a renowned university publisher it makes highest-quality work promptly available to a global audience. Open-access makes individual contributions and legal scholarship more visible, accessible, and accountable. The journal serves as a forum where the national, international and EU perspectives meet and engage. The journal is therefore irreverent of traditional distinctions between EU, international, and national law. While primarily offering legal doctrinal and theoretical analyses, the journal also publishes multi-disciplinary work and political science and international relations contributions with an external perspective on the law of EU’s external relations.

The journal publishes article-length papers and shorter pieces offering an analysis of topical issues or recent cases, as well as review articles and special series. The journal welcomes the submission of highest-quality papers in the following formats:

  • Original research articles (8-12,000 words)
  • European Law and Practice articles: case notes, current legal developments (5-8,000 words)
  • Review articles: e.g. critical and systematic appraisal of the current research
  • Book review articles

Papers published in the journal will be freely available to read online and published under the CC-BY 4.0 international licence (
