More on this journal...
The objectives of IJLSE are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, the legal community, the expert community, risk and liability managers, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the resolution of complex disputes that are informed by science. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments to encourage the growth of a defined intellectual discipline of evidence-based dispute resolution. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and ecological change, changes in the global economy, cultural differences in values and toward the application of public knowledge, and comparative law.Readership
IJLSE addresses itself primarily to a readership expected to include professionals (especially in law, engineering, medicine, and public health), academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of law, healthcare, legislation, international trade, technology management, engineering and business education, in order to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.Contents
A. IJLSE publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues are devoted to important topics in liability and scientific enquiry.
B. IJLSE’s editorial board will review contributions based on methodology, presentation, and fit with the purposes and goals of the journal, including the impact on evidentiary, legal, or policymaking approaches. The editors will not undertake any independent review of the scientific validity of assertions in submissions, but submissions should contain sufficient references to peer-reviewed sources to demonstrate the support within the scientific community, or the lack thereof.
