CfP: Law, Ethics and Philosophy, a new international journal

Law, Ethics and Philosophy (LEAP) is a new peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to work in ethics, legal theory, and social and political philosophy. It welcomes clear, rigorous and original submissions addressing concrete issues of public concern as well as more abstract theoretical questions. It also has the distinctive aims of (a) fostering work drawing on a variety of disciplines within the social and natural sciences, including biology, economics, history, and psychology; and (b) promoting dialogue between the Anglophone and non-Anglophone worlds.

We invite submissions of articles up to 10,000 words, discussion notes up to 5,000 words, and replies and exchanges not exceeding 3,000 words. All published submissions will be subject to double blind review, and the journal will notify authors of submitted pieces about the progress of their submission within six weeks.
