About this journal
European Law Open
  • ISSN: 2752-6135 (Online)
  • Frequency: 4 issues per year

European Law Open (ELO) delivers a dynamic, critical and contextual approach to European law in an Open Access format. The journal is open to different voices, different concerns, and different methodologies, offering a platform for rigorous analysis of both EU law itself and wider European law and governance in their political, cultural, social and economic contexts. Intellectually ambitious 'Core analysis' research papers will be published alongside shorter ‘Dialogue and debate’ pieces as well as reflections on books and classic articles. European Law Open is the bold new platform for the diverse voices of the EU law community.

As a barrier-free Gold Open Access journal, a fee waiver system is in place for unfunded authors.

Our online submission system is live here.
