New journals from Berkeley Electronic Press.

Berkeley Electronic Press (BEP; Berkeley, CA) has begun the production of two new online journals, including "Review of Law & Economics" and "International Commentary on Evidence."

"Review of Law & Economics" will be produced four times a year in association with the European Association of Law and Economics (EALE). The new title publishes theoretical and empirical interdisciplinary research in law and economics-related topics and "explores the various understandings that economic approaches shed on legal institutions," BEP said. The journal focuses on the application to legal issues of new insights developed in economic disciplines such as microeconomics and game theory, finance, econometrics, decision theory, political economy and public choice, behavioral economics, social psychology and evolutionary biology.

Also produced quarterly, "International Commentary on Evidence" is a peer-reviewed journal on evidence law and theory. Its purpose is to "promote scholarly communication about the law of evidence without regard to political or academic boundaries." Articles address evidentiary issues in more than one jurisdiction and covering such topics as economics, psychology, philosophy and history. Content includes articles focusing on one major topic for each issue. The "Crawford v. Washington" issue includes articles on the uses of history in Crawford v. Washington, the right to confrontation after the decision, reassessing confrontation after the decision, and general perspectives. An annual subscription costs $35 for individuals and $175 for institutions.
