New legal journals from Hart Publications and Cambridge Univ. Press.

Legal book and periodical publisher Hart Publications (Oxford, UK) has begun the publication of two new journals, including "Journal of Private International Law" and "European Competition Journal." Both will be published twice in 2006 with frequency expected to increase to quarterly in 2007.

The "Journal of Private International Law" is a peer-reviewed title that carries original articles and analysis of current development in the field of private international law. The title covers all aspects of private international law, Hart said, reflecting the role of the European Union and the Hague Conference on Private International Law in the making of private international law, in addition to the traditional role of domestic legal orders. It publishes articles about developments in any jurisdiction on any aspect of private international law, including analysis of new treaties and conventions and review articles on new publications. An annual subscription cost 55 [pounds sterling] for individuals and 105 [pounds sterling] for institutions.

"European Competition Journal" covers current developments in competition law in all European jurisdictions. Content focuses on vertical and conglomerate mergers, enlargement of the EU and its ramifications for competition policy, unilateral and coordinated efforts in merger control, cartels and leniency and the restatement and evolution of Article 82. An annual subscription costs 85 [pounds sterling] for individuals and 160 [pounds sterling] for institutions. Also, Cambridge University Press (CUP; London/New York) has begun the publication of "International Journal of Law in Context" and "European Constitutional Law Review."

Produced to "explore and expand the boundaries of law and legal studies," "International Journal of Law in Context" is designed to provide a forum for interdisciplinary legal studies and to publish contextual work and research about law and its relationship with other disciplines including science, literature, humanities, philosophy, sociology, psychology, ethics, history and geography. CUP said the title offers a forum for continuing the enterprise of the "Law in Context" series and creates a space for exploring law in all of its contexts. The journal is published quarterly and an annual print subscription costs $43 for individuals and $256 for institutions.

"European Constitutional Law Review" is described as a platform for advancing the study of European constitutional law, its history and evolution. Its editorial scope covers European law and constitutional law, history and theory, comparative law and jurisprudence. Published three times a year, it carries articles on doctrine, scholarship and history, and jurisprudence as well as book reviews. An annual subscription for institutions costs $123 in print, $112 online and $138 for both. Individual subscription prices are not offered.
