Information For Authors

Purpose and scope of the Journal

We are interested in topics which relate generally to Law issues in Indonesia and around the world. Articles submitted might cover topical issues in Business/Commercial Law, International Law, and Comparative Law. 


Peer review process

Juris Gentium Law Review applies the double blind review process. The authors are welcome to suggest at least three potential reviewers along with name and their email address. However, the decision to determine the appropriate reviewers is right of the editorial board. The approved gallery proof of manuscript will early view online as early as possible upon received from author and final proof reading by editor in chief.

Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are not allowed. A software tool may be used so that the submitted articles are screened for plagiarism. Detection of overlapping and similar text is used there and so quotations and appropriate citations have to be used whenever required. It is basically author’s duty to only submit a manuscript that is free from plagiarism and academically malpractices. The editor, however, double checks each article before its publication. The first step is to check plagiarism against offline database by Juris Gentium Law Review Editorial Board and, secondly, against as much as possible online databases.
