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.
