General Information Letter for Authors

We publish articles on a wide variety of human resources and labor/employment law topics. Acceptance of articles depends on both the individual merits of the articles in terms of style and content and on the needs of the Labor Law Journal at the time of review. This, in turn, depends on the mix of articles on hand for review, the articles scheduled for publication in the near future, and the articles that have been recently published. Manuscripts are accepted or rejected by the editorial staff and/or members of the Editorial Board, who take into account current needs of the Journal. Articles may be submitted at any time. 

We do not pay for articles. Complimentary copies of the issues in which your article appears will be sent to you when the magazine mails. We do not make copyright registration on behalf of the authors, but we do carry a copyright notice in their names on the title pages of their articles. 

We routinely grant permission to use our articles in other publications, provided the author's permission is obtained. For that purpose, we provide the requester with the last known address of the author. Requests to distribute copies of articles on a one-time basis, usually from university librarians and professors, are granted routinely by the editorial staff, unless the author has advised us in writing not to do so. 

Outsourcing procedures and time constraints do not permit review of page proofs by authors. Editing is usually limited to grammar, punctuation, and format. Scheduled publication dates may be moved up or back at the discretion of the editorial staff. Because of time constraints and quick turnaround, revisions by the author after an article is accepted are discouraged. 

General Guidelines:

  • Articles should be double-spaced, 20 to 50 pages.
  • Use meaningful subtitles to break up text content.
  • Write in short sentences and paragraphs, which best conform to Labor Law Journal form.
  • Express citations as endnotes instead of including them as part of the text. Limit endnotes to source and case citations, not for additional explanation or examples, which should be included in the text or eliminated.
  • Submit electronic files, preferably in Microsoft Word, via e-mail or by disk via U.S. mail to the address listed below. Disks will not be returned.
  • Include a one-paragraph biographical sketch of the author on a separate page.
