GUIDELINE FOR REVIEWERS
The following are to serve as a guide for reviewers:
- Originality and contributions of the article to existing literature;
- Limitations of the article
- Whether the article is well written and argued, especially whether the author is able to communicate his views
In addition, the reviewer is requested to provide his views on whether the article is publishable by rating it as follows:
- Publishable in its current form;
- Publishable on condition that the listed corrections are implemented
- Not publishable
If the contribution is in the form of a review of a case or a book, it should be up to 3,500 words (including footnotes). The requirements stipulated above are applicable but originality and contribution of the review to existing literature may not be a critical consideration if the review deals with a landmark or significant case that provides important national or international jurisprudence, or focuses on a recent book that makes significant contribution to scholarship.
