Apie leidinį

 
"Baltic Journal of Law & Politics" (BJLP) is a scholarly journal, published bi-annually in electronic form as a joint publication of the Faculty of Political Science and Diplomacy and the Faculty of Law of Vytautas Magnus University (Lithuania). BJLP provides a platform for the publication of scientific research in the fields of law and politics, with a particular emphasis on interdisciplinary research that cuts across these traditional categories. Topics may include, but are not limited to the Baltic Region; research into issues of comparative or general theoretical significance is also encouraged. BJLP is peer-reviewed and published in English.
The journal’s contributions present quality research on topics of critical concern both within and without the academy. The journal provides a platform for the publication of innovative research in the fields of law and politics, with an acute interest in the cross-pollinations of disciplines, comparative approaches to regional issues, and active dialogue on pressing contemporary issues of theoretical and practical import.
The journal is committed to the quality of every article from the initial stage of inquiry to the date of publication. The journal provides fast, fair and constructive peer review by specialists in their areas from all over the world. Authors receive editorial assistance in adjusting their manuscripts to the standards of the journal as needed. Submissions from all corners of the fields of law and politics are encouraged, especially research that locates itself at their intersections.

Informacija autoriams

 
Contributions to "Baltic Journal of Law & Politics" (BJLP) shall be articles of original research or analysis papers. BJLP is a refereed journal. Submissions are subject to academic review. Every submitted manuscript receives at least two reviews.
Submissions shall be written in English.
Submissions can be made at any time.
The length of the article shall not exceed 15,000 words.
Contributors are asked to provide an A4 1.5 lines spaced version of their manuscript as an e-mail attachment, in Microsoft Office (.doc) or Open Office (.odt) format, to the e-mail addresses below. Non-standard fonts should be avoided – Verdana font is the preferred font of the journal. A margin on all sides of 2,5 cm should be applied for the entire document.
The title page shall contain (in the following order): (1) Title, (2) Author’s full name, details of scientific and pedagogical degrees, institutional affiliation, and contact information, including e-mail address, (3) Abstract in English (100-250 words), (4) List of keywords (4-7).
Contributors are requested to followHumanities Style (advisably as regulated by The Chicago Manual of Style) for the formatting of references, with the following further instructions: (1) references to works cited shall be provided in documentary footnotes as well as in a bibliographical list provided at the end of the document; (2) documentary notes are to be listed as footnotes (not endnotes); (3) a bibliographical list shall be provided at the end of the manuscript, generally arranged in alphabetical order and called “Bibliography”.
Authors should consider that: “documentary notes and bibliographies are intended to provide much the same information – full bibliographic details – although in somewhat different form. The first time a work is cited in a note, the reference is usually complete, much as it would be in a bibliography. In subsequent citations, however, the information is curtailed, and a short form of reference is given (usually only author’s last name, a shortened version of the title, and a page reference, if applicable; sometimes only author’s last name and the page reference)” (The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th edition (Chicago and London: The University of Chicago Press, 1993), p. 528). Ibid should be used to refer to a single work cited in the note immediately preceding. Authors should avoid using op.cit. or loc.cit. in subsequent or shortened references in notes; instead they should use short title form (ibid., p. 580-583).
Authors should also consider that: “among the differences between citations in notes and bibliography entries, aside from the possibility of shortened forms in the notes, are the following: (1) In bibliography entries the names of authors are inverted, that is, last name is first, because the entries are arranged alphabetically by authors’ last names. In note citations, where alphabetical arrangement is not used, authors’ names are given in normal order. (2) In bibliography entries the various components of information are separated by periods. In notes the separation is by commas, except for the publication facts, which are enclosed in parentheses, with no preceding punctuation but with a comma separating the closing parenthesis from the page or volume number” (ibid., p. 528).

Authors should avoid citing an Internet source if a legislative act or a case is available in an official print source. Examples of the reference to a legislative act and a case serve only as the recommendation in relationship to other countries apart from Lithuania; authors should as much as possible abide by the rules of the corresponding country or organization in relation to the citation of these sources, however, country or organization should be evident from the reference; if that is not the case, authors should provide additional information indicating the country or organization in parentheses at the end of the reference (for example: Polish case, Latvian statute, the UN resolution, etc.).
The bibliographical list may be broken into sections. It is advisable to make such a division if the paper includes considerable legal citation (references to legislative acts, statutes, cases, etc.); in this case that section of bibliographical list should be called “Legal references”.
It is strongly advisable to provide English translations of the titles of books, articles, legal documents or other sources, if they are in a language other than English. The translations should be provided in brackets immediately following the title. For example: Carl Schmitt, Politische Theologie. Vier Kapitel zur Lehre von der Souveranität [Political Theology. Four Chapters on the Concept of Sovereignty], Siebente Auflage (Berlin: Duncker & Humblot, 1996).
Authors are responsible for observing the laws of copyright when quoting or reproducing any and all borrowed material.
