Law Journal Library Additions


COMMUNICATION LAW AND POLICY
Full Text: Vols. 1-19 (1996-2014)
Indexed: Vols. 1-25#1 (1996-2020)

Published by Taylor & Francis

The societal, cultural, economic, and political dimensions of communication, including the freedoms of speech and press, are undergoing dramatic global changes. As a forum for discussions of continuing and emerging questions in these areas, Communication Law and Policy considers traditional and contemporary problems of freedom of expression and dissemination. The double-blind peer-reviewed journal seeks research that is informed theoretically by First Amendment and constitutional analyses, historical approaches to communication law and policy issues, contemporary social theory literature that treats the law as cultural forms, the sociology and philosophy of law, systems approaches, critical theory, and other appropriate theoretical bases. The journal publishes rigorously reasoned and thoroughly researched studies based on traditional legal research, social science techniques, or ethnographic, international, or comparative analyses, as well as articles using other approaches to pertinent topics.

INDIANA JOURNAL OF CONSTITUTIONAL DESIGN
Vols. 1-4#1 (2016-2019)

Published by Indiana University Bloomington, Maurer School of Law

The Indiana Journal of Constitutional Design is an online interdisciplinary forum devoted to the development of the new field of constitutional design. Grown out of the work of the Center for Constitutional Democracy (CCD) at the Maurer School of Law at Indiana University, the journal builds on the CCD’s study and practice of constitutional design by providing a forum for the discussion and dissemination of related information and ideas.

This peer-edited publication differs from a traditional law journal in at least two ways: (1) it includes many different types of contributions of varying length, ranging from summaries of research on a topic, to taxonomies of constitutional mechanisms serving particular functions, to the development of theoretical models concerning constitutional design, and (2) its contributions draw on a wide range of disciplinary frameworks and skill sets, some focused on political science, economics, or anthropology, rather than law. The journal ultimately aims to contribute to the practice and theory of the developing field of constitutional design, providing information of use to both practitioners engaged in constitutional drafting or advising as well as scholars studying these processes.
