As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Notes for Contributors.
  • The text does not include the author's/authors' name(s) on the paper or reference the author's/authors' previous work in a way that might identify them.
  • The text is double-spaced in 12-point Times New Roman; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses).

Author Guidelines

Please submit your article in electronic format (preferably a Word document), via the online submissions process. Note: you will first need to register as a user in order to be able to log in and start the process.

The editor invites submission of material with a view to publication in the NILQ. Articles of any length will be considered for publication, but should not normally exceed 10,000 words.

The NILQ uses the Oxford Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA). OSCOLA is a footnote style for citations that gives rules and examples for the main UK primary sources and for many types of secondary sources. It is designed to facilitate accurate citation of authorities, legislation and other legal materials. The latest version is the fourth edition published in February 2012 by Hart Publishing: see OSCOLA Fourth Edition.

Please also ensure that your submission adheres to the guidelines outlined in the Notes for Contributors.
