Call for Expressions of Interest in Special Issues: the European Journal of Current Legal Issues

The European Journal of Current Legal Issues: http://webjcli.org/, the oldest open access legal eJournal in Europe, is currently looking for volunteers to edit special issues.  These could be, but need not be, linked to a recent workshop or conference.  As the journal follows the Gold Open Access publishing model we are able to turn around the publication schedule quickly in order to gain the maximum impact possible.

If you would like to suggest a special issue or have any suggestions relating to the journal then please email Catherine Easton:  c.easton@lancaster.ac.uk
