Contribute

We at JurisOpen invite you to join us in our efforts to build an online repository of authentic & reliable secondary legal materials from where people can cite for free.

JurisOpen solicits scholarly contributions from undergraduate students, research scholars, academics, legal professionals and others affiliated to the legal field on titles that may be relevant to the subject scope of law and legal studies in any standard publication format including, but not limited to, research articles, essays, case notes and legislative comments. Contributions may be sent for publishing (if unpublished) or sharing (if previously published) on the JurisOpen platform.

Contributors besides earning the credit for becoming a valued part of our initiation against the gross commodification of legal research & knowledge will have the benefits of:

  • retaining copyright over their contributed work (whether unpublished or previously published) – JurisOpen shall own and exercise only specific and limited rights over the contributed work granted to it by the contributors via the Contributor License Agreement (see Copyright);
  • wider dissemination of their previously published work via our freely accessible online platform leading to its increased citation and impact;
  • refereed publishing and sharing in the oversight of our esteemed Research Advisory Group.

We are currently accepting contributions only via email. You may send us your contribution in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) format at contributions@jurisopen.org with the subject line: ‘CONTRIBUTION: FOR PUBLISHING’ (if the contribution is an unpublished work) and ‘CONTRIBUTION: FOR SHARING’ (if the contribution is a previously published work). You may submit only one contribution at a time. For multiple contributions, separate emails should be sent.

Contributors must register with JurisOpen by filling in the Contributor Registration Form before sending any contribution. This is a one-time-only registration. Kindly note that in the event of co-authors or joint proprietors of any contribution, individual registration of each such co-author or joint proprietor is required.
