Max Planck Institute for European Legal History

Peer review procedure

Global Perspectives on Legal History is an international, multilingual book series. It is edited by Thomas Duve and Stefan Vogenauer, joint directors of the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History.

In order to ensure a consistently high quality of volumes, manuscripts submitted for consideration undergo a stringent peer review process.

After evaluation by the series editors, those manuscripts deemed of sufficiently high quality for publication are subjected to double-blind peer review. External peer reviewers are recruited from a broad network of internationally well-established experts in the relevant field of research. Care is taken to avoid any conflicts of interest and, because the book series is multilingual, reviewers are also chosen with regard to relevant language skills.

Authors will receive the reviewers’ reports along with the editors’ decision (acceptance, acceptance conditional on minor or major revisions, rejection).
