Article 2. The English e-periodical of the Chengchi Law Review started in 2003 and is published once or twice a year. The published articles are selected from the works written in English and published in the Chengchi Law Review.

A submitter who does not wish to have his/her work published on the e-periodical needs to notify us in advance.
Article 3. We welcome works on law, translated works, book reviews, analysis of actual practice, theses published in seminars, and cross-strait studies, and the submitter is asked to specify to which of the above categories his/her work belongs. A long paper could be published in different issues. Please follow academic rules regarding referencing and provide references at the end of the work. The format must be consistent with that specified in our Department’s “Referencing of Theses Published on the Chengchi Law Review” (our website: http://www.law.nccu.edu.tw/comment/comment_01.asp?item=3). Any work that has no referencing, has been submitted to multiple periodicals, or the whole or a part of which has already been published in another periodical will be rejected.
Article 4. We welcome papers in Chinese or foreign languages that do not exceed 50,000 words. The original text and a letter of agreement from the original author are required if the work is a translation.
