JOURNAL OF LIBERTY AND INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS (JLIA)
Vols. 1-5 (2015-2020)

Published by the Institute for Research and European Studies

The Journal of Liberty and International Affairs is a triannual international peer-reviewed journal in the social sciences. Geared towards informing policymakers and social workers while also engaging students, the journal covers topics of interest in political science, international relations, and international law, but also seeks to provide a quality interdisciplinary platform of debate for scholars and researchers on complementary disciplines, including social sciences and economics. It is important to emphasize that this journal devotes special attention to Europe and the European Union, and relevant contemporary international affairs—particularly that of the Balkans, and especially the attitude of the Balkan countries towards European integration. While seeking to stimulate interest in and understanding of liberty and international affairs, the journal does not seek to promote any particular policies or approaches.

KANSAS JOURNAL OF LAW AND PUBLIC POLICY ONLINE
Vol. 29 Articles 1-2 (2019-2020)

Published by the University of Kansas, School of Law

In March of 1990, five University of Kansas law students formed the Kansas Journal of Law & Public Policy, a new legal publication at the School of Law, to meet two goals: (1) to prompt policymakers and scholars to address issues left unaddressed in traditional legal scholarship publications; and (2) to foster a broad notion of diversity in these public policy debates. Originally conceived as a tool to explore how the law shapes public policy and vice versa, the journal has provided a forum for the discussion of public policy for decades as a print publication. A supplement to the print version, the Journal Online features high-caliber, short pieces focused on timely public policy issues.

Tip of the Month

Have you heard of HeinOnline’s Venn Diagram Search? With this feature, researchers can visualize the results yield of various keywords to better refine their searches, saving valuable time and effort and eliminating the need to continuously edit a search.

Find the tool within the Advanced Search feature of the Law Journal Library. After selecting Venn Diagram Search, users will be redirected to a page with a search bar, instructions for its use, and a few example searches. Search for multiple terms separated with the Boolean operator “AND.”

For example, perform a search using the terms “child,” “labor,” and “rights.” Enter each term into the search bar, separating each with the word “AND.” Click the Search button to bring up a Venn Diagram illustrating the various combinations of those terms and their respective results yield within the Law Journal Library. The original search combining all three terms (child AND labor AND rights) will appear by default, visually represented by the red intersection of all three circles in the diagram.

Users can also view the results of other combinations. Select the Clear button above the diagram to be able to hover over the various options. Users will see that all possible search term combinations are highlighted as the cursor hovers over them. Click one of these highlighted circles or intersections to bring up the results of other combinations.

For example, to view only the results of the terms “child” and “labor,” select Clear and then hover over the intersection between the two terms to see it highlighted in red. Select the red intersection to bring up the results of the search child AND labor in the Law Journal Library.
