Submission Pro-Tips

Send expedite requests via Scholastica

You can send expedite requests to one or all of the journals you submitted to right from your Scholastica manuscript submission details page. Expedite requests made on Scholastica, rather than via email, are immediately visible to editors in their work area and much less likely to get lost.

Submit to law reviews by category

Are you planning on submitting your manuscript to all of the law reviews in a particular category, such as all “technology law” journals or all “environmental law” journals? You can easily submit your article to a chosen law review category by typing in a category name (i.e. “environmental”) or clicking the blue “All” dropdown menu on the journal search bar and selecting the category you need.

Use Discussions to communicate with editors

Communicating with law review editors is easy on Scholastica! Next time you have a question for one of the law reviews you've submitted to, send your inquiry via Discussions. Your message will go directly to the journal’s editors and be stored next to your manuscript, so editors know exactly which article it’s about. Editors receive notifications for all new Scholastica Discussion messages, so they’ll be less likely to fall through the cracks than emails.

Manage your submissions in groups

Once you've submitted your article to the law reviews of your choice, remember that you can manage multiple submissions at once and even re-submit the same article to more law reviews later on. See how you can:

  • Send expedite requests to one or more journals
  • Withdraw a manuscript from one or more journals
  • Accept and decline publication offers from journals that have accepted your manuscript
