New Peer Review Format at Pace Environmental Law Review

I have mentioned before that, in my view, environmental law and animal law are inseverably linked.  In the spirit of bridging the counter-productive gulf between between the two disciplines, I note the following announcement from the Pace Environmental Law Review:

Pace Environmental Law Review is

Raising the Bar with

Peer Review

As of August 1, 2009, Pace Environmental Law Review (PELR) will use a new Peer Review process to select articles for publication.  Submissions will be reviewed internally and then forwarded to a select group of Peer Reviewers – academics, practitioners, and

experts in the field, including members of Pace Law School’s world-renowned environmental law faculty.  The Peer Review process will offer new and distinctive opportunities to foster continued debate and reflection upon some of the most pressing

topics within the field of environmental law. Articles selected for publication will benefit from:

  • Expedited editorial processing of 8 to 10 weeks from acceptance.
  • Single-article hard copy publication.
  • Inclusion in a bound volume distributed to PELR’s wide-ranging list of subscribers.

All articles submitted to PELR must be original scholarship and not previously published.

Established in 1982, PELR was one of the first scholarly environmental law journals.

We invite authors to submit articles either via ExpressO or directly in either MSWord or

PDF format to the PELR Development & Acquisitions Editor at
