The University of California Press has asked me to pass on the following announcement:
in January, April, July and October. "The New Criminal Law Review picks up where the Buffalo Criminal Law Review left off, by providing an international and interdisciplinary outlet for cutting-edge scholarship on issues related to criminal law and state punishment, featuring a mix of articles, essays, commentaries, and book reviews, along with symposium issues on topics of theoretical and practical importance." -Markus D. Dubber & Lindsay Farmer, Editors-in-Chief For more information on New Criminal Law Review, click here. Read the NCLR press release.
Sounds terrifice. I wonder what their open-access policy will be. Journals like this, especially new journals, will only succeed if they are committed to offering authors two things: (1) open-access full-text searching immediately upon publication (Google must have access to full text), and (2) open-access, free-of-charge downloadability in a reasonable period, i.e. within one year of publication.
