As part of our commitment to reduce the time it takes for academic discoveries to reach the research community, EJLS has decided to launch its new service, Online First. Online First are newly published academic articles yet to be assigned to a specific EJLS issue, allowing readers to access peer reviewed articles prior to the publication of the full issue. All Online First articles are searchable and citable by their DOI (Digital Object Identifier).
Once an article is published as part of a full EJLS issue it may be found under the ‘Issues’ tab. Please note that the decision of whether to publish an article as Online First remains within the discretion of the EJLS. As such, approved articles will not automatically be published as Online First ahead of publication of the next regular issue.
The first contribution published under this initiative is Olga Ceran’s book review of Evaluating Academic Legal Research in Europe. The Advantage of Lagging Behind, edited by Rob Van Gestel and Andreas Lienhard.
