Law Journal Submission Services
Some law journals allow submissions directly to their email addresses, while others require the use of third party submission services (e.g. ExpressO or Scholastica). Below, we have links to two third party submission services, one list of direct emails on the ONU website, and one article containing information regarding almost every law journal. If you are unsure of the journal's preferred submission method, please check their website or Information for Submitting Articles to Law Reviews and Journals link below.
ExpressO is an automated article submission system used by many law journals. To submit articles using ExpressO, click the check box next to the names of any journals to which you would like to submit your article, click the red "Continue" button, fill out the information on the next page, upload your article, then complete the submission.
Students are given a $30 allotment for submissions through ExpressO, and each electronic submission costs $2.10. Faculty submissions cost $3.10, and their allotment information for submissions may be found in their ExpressO account.
Some journals use Scholastica as their preferred submission method. Setting up an account allows you to submit articles to journals on Scholastica. To submit an article, first click the red "Submit a Manuscript" button. Then click "Go to Submission Pool" to submit your article to multiple law journals. Choose the law journals to which you would like to submit your article, and click "Next Step" to fill out your information. After you submit that information, you will go to the billing portion where you will finalize your submissions.
Scholastica allows journals to pay for their own submission fees or charge the author per submission. Because Scholastica does not allow libraries to create allotment caps, the Law Library is unable to provide funding for student article submissions. You will be responsible to pay the fees yourself. Faculty support for Scholastica is handled through the Dean's Office.
Ohio Northern University Email Submission Page
This site is a compiled list of law journals along with their associated websites and email addresses. Submitting articles via email is free, but some law reviews will not accept submissions this way. Always be sure to check with the journal either on their website or by contacting them to find their preferred method of submissions.
