Call for Expressions of Interests to publish in the German Practice Section of the German Yearbook of International Law
The Editors of the German Yearbook of International Law (GYIL) would like to invite authors to publish in our prestigious German Practice section for the forthcoming edition (Vol. 63, 2020).
The German Practice section gives (primarily, but not exclusively, German) authors an opportunity to discuss current state practice in Germany relevant to international law. This section presents shorter reports rather than extended essays.
The German Practice section welcomes prospective doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers, and other outstanding students with a strong interest in international law to publish with us. This call presents an excellent opportunity for new and emerging authors to publish for the first time.
Prospective authors do not need to already have a topic in mind when submitting an expression of interest.
Submissions can include either a specific topic OR a list of general areas of international law that the author would be interested in conducting research on. In the latter case, the German Practice Section Coordinator will seek to connect the author with a specific topic or issue that the Yearbook would like to publish on.
The Yearbook’s goal is to broaden the academic discussion surrounding German State practice in international law, which is integral to the identification and establishment of rules of customary international law. Subsequently, authors must be prepared to engage critically with their selected topic and be able to demonstrate its relevance to the discourse on the dynamic relationship between Germany and the ontemporary state of jurisprudence in international law.
Finalised papers must be submitted in English, and be between 3,000 and 6,000 words (inclusive of footnotes). Submissions should further conform the style guide of the German Yearbook of International Law (available to download at GYIL.org).
The GYIL invites (non-exclusively) interested students and early-career scholars of international law to submit an excerpt/writing sample of no more than two pages (if one is available), their CV, and either a specific topic(s) OR a list of areas of international law the author is interested in publishing in to our German Practice Section Coordinator Alexander Grimmig at firstname.lastname@example.org. General enquiries can also be made to this address.
Expressions of interest should be submitted no later than 22 November 2020, and completed drafts must be submitted by 14 February 2021.
