A new journal, Journal of Science and Law, has announced a call for papers. From its website:
“The journal is open-access, with all articles available for free at JSciLaw.org. Because we are an online journal, we are de-emphasizing word limits in deference to quality: articles should be as long as they need to be (but no longer). We publish Original Research Articles, Reviews, Opinions, and occasionally, Book Reviews. Papers are published on a rolling basis as soon as they are accepted.”
