Editorial Process

Arizona Law Review is known as one of the few student publications to consistently get its issues to the printer on time, every time.

During the editing process, the entire editorial staff is at your disposal for both substantive review and citation assistance. An Articles Editor and the Senior Articles Editor review each article and provide substantive feedback on grammar, style, formatting, organization, content, and clarity of argument. The Articles Editors are available via e-mail and phone throughout the process to answer any questions and to share general comments about your article.

Each article is also reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief and “copyworked” by the Review staff. Copywork ensures that each citation accurately reflects the stated proposition and conforms to Bluebook citation rules. The Review staff also undertakes a series of internal proofs to prepare each article for publication.

Finally, Arizona Law Review works with authors to cultivate a list of individuals who will receive a complimentary copy of the piece, accompanied by a personal letter from our Editor-in-Chief highlighting the article’s importance. The Review’s marketing team works to identify opportunities to promote each piece, such as blogging, local and national media, and publication on SSRN.
