Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be made online by filling this form. Articles mailed directly to JNLUD email id will not be considered. After initial screening, short-listed submissions will go through a blind peer review process and the final selection will be based on the outcome of the peer review process. The submission should be in conformity with the following guidelines —

  • Articles are typically of around 6000-8000 words including footnotes.

  • Notes and Comments are short pieces (of less than 5000 words). These have a narrower scope of inquiry than articles and may include analysis of recent case laws, legislation or policy. Book reviews are generally around 2500 words. Successful submissions to this category will critically analyse the ideas and themes explored in the book instead of merely providing a summary of its main arguments.

  • Journal of National Law University Delhi adheres to the OSCOLA citation style. Authors are requested to follow the same.

  • Please submit your manuscript in MS-Word document format only.

Each submission (except Book Review) should be accompanied by an abstract of not more than 300 words and 5 Key words.
