They Stole Our Shtick, But Read It Anyway
Insider views from a law review editor, http://opiniojuris.org/tag/law-review-submission-process/. Thanks to the editor, James Tierney of the Chicago LR, for his candor.
Some highlights: "The best articles are those that look as if they might be publishable immediately."
"Once a journal makes an offer on a ... [specialty] law article ... another [same specialty] article will face a higher burden of persuasion."
"Authors might think twice before sending their second, or third [e-mail about an upcoming board review] of the day."
"Including very few footnotes suggests the author wants our editors and staff to complete the library research process."
