Open Call for Papers

Having recently completed a strategic review, the Essex Human Rights Review is now actively accepting submissions for the forthcoming regular issue, which is due for publication in the autumn term of 2013.

The Essex Human Rights Review publishes original scholarly works addressing contemporary issues and debates in human rights. We encourage submissions from a broad range of disciplines, including law, philosophy, political science, sociology, anthropology and economics.

Contributions from academics, practitioners and postgraduate students are welcome. The EHRR accepts academic articles, conference reports, book reviews and edited transcripts of interviews with key figures in the field of human rights (12,000 words maximum). We also encourage the submission of short notes and commentaries on recent developments, on-going cases, current initiatives and research relevant to human rights protection (1000 words maximum).

Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and must be in electronic form. Articles submitted to the EHRR should be original, previously unpublished material and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time.

All submissions, including cover letters and other materials, should be in English. Submissions must adhere to the EHRR Submission Guidelines and the EHRR Style Sheet.  Articles should be submitted to for consideration.
