Submission Guidelines

We invite and accept original contributions that involve critical interdisciplinary research on environmental issues both at national and international level. The contributions must include comprehensive, high- quality interdisciplinary and legal analysis of environmental issues, case laws, legislation and policy making, and activism. At the same time, under exceptional circumstances, the editorial board may welcome the write-ups that revisit important issues which may have gone dormant, unresearched, provide a unique and novel perspective or have renewed paradigm for discussion.

We encourage manuscripts that render policy arguments and concrete suggestions for the environment related problems along with the manuscripts that take a local approach to global issues that are around the environment related topics. The CELS Enviro-Legal Blog seeks interesting and innovative analysis and would be delighted to discuss or develop your notions. Contributors are requested to read the Submission Guidelines for the CELS Enviro-Legal Blog before submitting a proposed blog to us. 


Our forum is an egalitarian space and submissions are welcome from students, environment law researchers, academicians, practitioners, members of civil society organizations and policymakers. However, quality of research and adherence to submission guidelines are quintessential requirements for acceptance.
