The Law Review Approach: What the Humanities Can Learn
Mendenhall, Allen
Academic Questions, v26 n1 p48-58 Mar 2013
Readers of this journal probably know how the peer review process works in the humanities disciplines and at various journals. Therefore the author explains how the law review process generally works and then what the humanities can learn and borrow from the law review process. He ends by advocating for a hybrid law review/peer review approach to publishing. The law review process is not a panacea for publishing ills. It has several drawbacks and shortcomings. This essay highlights the positives and notes some of the negatives of the law review publishing process. Every law review has its idiosyncrasies and methodologies, but most share certain overarching procedures and protocols that can be evaluated in terms of their similarity. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
