The Law & Psychology Review invites all individuals to submit articles to be considered for publication in the journal. Publication in the journal provides an opportunity for scholars of law and psychology to make their research and expertise available to the professional public. The journal is published annually in the late Spring, so it is recommended that articles to be considered should be submitted to the Managing Board by August 1st of the year preceding publication. While submissions are considered throughout the year, articles are considered on a rolling basis starting in the early Spring prior to publication, and thus authors are encouraged to submit their articles as soon as possible. All submissions to the Managing Board should be in the following format: 1) A typed, double-spaced hard copy of the article and a digital copy that includes the article in Microsoft Word format; or 2) authors may e-mail a copy of their article to the journal. LPR also reviews submissions via Scholastica Manuscripts and BePress Expresso. Please note that all manuscripts and digital copies will not be returned. Article submissions should be sent to the following address:

Managing Board
Law & Psychology Review
University of Alabama School of Law
P.O. Box 870382
Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35487-0382

Because the Law & Psychology Review is a published law journal and the Managing Board requests that article submissions adhere to several substantive and formatting requirements.

Those requirements are as follows:

  1. The core subject matter of the article must be within the scope of the journal. The article must address a topic pertaining to both law and psychology.
  2. Articles should be thoroughly cited in footnote format in compliance with The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (20th Edition). The Managing Board is willing to work with authors to convert articles to Bluebook format when time permits.
  3. Potential authors should retain a copy of each source referenced by the article. The Managing Board will attempt to independently obtain copies of each source, but may request copies from the author of any sources that are particularly difficult to locate.
