The NALSAR Tech Law Forum Blog welcomes posts from students, academicians and practitioners alike. If you are interested in the field of Tech Law and have an opinion or an idea that you would like to put out, this Blog is the platform for you. We welcome novel arguments and perspectives on any topic, as long as it pertains to technology laws.
The Blog accepts submissions on a rolling basis. Please mail all your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Submission for TLF Blog”, only in a Microsoft Office Word-compatible format (.doc or .docx). Please include a short summary (1-2 lines) of the article in the email. The Blog accepts only original submissions. Simultaneous submissions are strongly discouraged and will not be accepted.
Word limit & style
There is no mandatory citation style or word limit, though it is required that due credit is given to the sources that are used. It is recommended that all sources be hyper-linked to the text wherever possible; if no online sources are available, footnotes may be used. If you find any particularly interesting articles that would benefit the readers, please include them as ‘recommended readings’ at the end of the posts. We prefer the submissions to be approximately 1000-1200 words.
Please include the following details in the body of the email: Name of Author(s), Year of Study (if applicable), and Institution or Organisation of affiliation. You may also include a short bio (40-50 words).
Submissions to the Blog will be acknowledged at the earliest. After this, the Blog follows a two-step review process. In the first stage, the editorial board will undertake a preliminary review of the submission and notify rejection or provisional acceptance to the authors; this may take around 7 days from the receipt of the article. If the submission is accepted after the preliminary review, the editorial board may ask the authors to make changes to the article, which can take up to 14 days after receipt of the article. In case the topic is of a temporal nature, an expedited review may be requested.
Final acceptance will be communicated only after the changes have been made. The editorial board has complete discretion to reject submissions at any stage.
