Tip of the Month

When researching in the Law Journal Library, users have the ability to browse by Edit Type. According to Washington and Lee University School of Law, there are three different types of edited journals:

  • Student-edited means a student-run journal that does not send articles out for peer review.
  • Peer-edited means a journal that is edited by professionals in the field.
  • Refereed means a journal that routinely sends article submissions on for peer review by members of a diverse professional group.

Student-edited or peer-edited journals may also be refereed, in which case the journal will be listed as refereed. Additionally, this Edit Type categorization currently only applies to actively published journals.

There are two ways to filter by Edit Type. First, navigate to the Law Journal Library and click the Edit Type option from the Browse by menu.

From here users can browse through the journals that fall into these three categories.

Alternatively, users can refine their searches in the Law Journal Library by Edit Type. For example, let’s run a proximity search for “teacher liability bullying”~20. From the results page, click on Edit Type and choose peer-edited.

The very first result is an article from one of our newest journals and is entitled, “Teacher Stress: Liability for and the Consequences of Harassment and Bullying.”
