Usc Journal Of Law And Society
JLS is a scholarly dialectical forum for students who come to law school with a passion to redress social injustices. International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal’s documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address. Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal’s published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents. Evolution of the total number of citations and journal’s self-citations received by a journal’s published documents during the three previous years.
Read by more than 4,500 health care professionals, JLME is the authoritative source for health law teachers, practitioners, policy makers, risk managers, and anyone else concerned with the safe, equitable, and ethical delivery of health care services. Under the direction of new Editor-in-Chief Kyra Schoonover, the USC Journal of Law and Society publishes its ninth volume, containing papers written by students at four different undergraduate institutions. This issue is one of the most diverse yet, with papers covering US foreign policy, second amendment rights, the legal status of professional sports leagues, international torture law, and the intersection of technology and law in the future.
Led by Editor-in-Chief Steve K. Choi, the Spring 2005 edition of the Journal published works by two authors, focused on treatment programs for adolescents in correctional and detention facilities and retroactivity of the FSIA in Austria v. Altmann. MJLScombines the best elements of peer-reviewed journals and student-run journals to speed up the process by which cutting-edge scholarship can enter scholarly debates and inform the public consciousness. The words justice and judge have similar meanings because they have a common ancestry. They are derived from the same Latin term, jus, which is defined in dictionaries as “right” and “law.” However, those definitions of jus are so broad that they obscure the details of what the term meant when it formed the words that eventually became justice and judge. The etymology of jus reveals the kind of right and law it signified was related to the concepts of restriction and obligation.
The Asian Journal of Law and Society adds an increasingly important Asian perspective to global law and society scholarship. Its coverage of Asia is broad and stretches from East Asia, South Asia and South East Asia to Central Asia. A unique combination of a base in Asia and an international editorial team creates a forum for Asian and Western scholars to exchange ideas of interest to Asian scholars and professionals, those working in or on Asia, as well as all working on law and society issues globally. It provides the latest announcements and news in health law, medicine, ethics, public policy, public health, and all of the related disciplines that ASLME covers.
The Spring 2019 publication of the Journal welcomed Madeline Goossen back as Editor-in-Chief. This will be Chynna’s second year working with JLS and she will be stepping up her position from Associate Editor to Lead Editor and Director of Public Relations. Outside of the classroom, she is a part of Women’s Leadership Society and Publish and Prosper, an editing network designed to assist high schoolers. She is also an avid runner and plans to take up new hobbies this semester such as piano. Her future goal is to attend law school, where she will focus on international law.
For topics on particular articles, maintain the dialogue through the usual channels with your editor. Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore “citable”, this chart shows the ratio of a journal’s articles including substantial research in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers. The “moving wall” represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a “zero” moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication. A title history is the publication history of a journal and includes a listing of the family of related journals.
We encourage students from a wide range of disciplines to submit their work. Papers should relate to an aspect of law and society in some manner, but need not have these topics as the central theme. Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide. Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves. The Journal of Law and Society is a quarterly peer-reviewed law journal which publishes papers in the field of the sociology of law. It was established in 1974 as the British Journal of Law and Society, obtaining its current name in 1982.
