The University of Missouri School of Law’s Journal of Dispute Resolution is accepting submissions for its next issue. While we cannot guarantee publication, we will eagerly review all quality submissions and will offer an expedited review process.  This is a great opportunity to be published in one of the world’s leading ADR journals, published in conjunction with the nationally recognized Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution.

To submit an article for publication in the Journal, simply send a copy of your article to:

Journal of Dispute Resolution
Attention: Lead Articles Editor
16 Hulston Hall
University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law
Columbia, MO 65211

Or, you may make an electronic submission by e-mailing a copy of your article to: umclawjournal@missouri.edu

Please include a brief cover letter with all submissions that includes your contact information. Submissions should include a brief abstract of the article of about 1-2 paragraphs summarizing the article. Someone with the Journal staff will then notify you that the Journal received your article for submission. Shortly thereafter, the Lead Articles Editor will notify you if your article has been selected for publication in an upcoming issue.

Please be aware that the Journal publishes twice a year (January and June) but accepts submissions year round.
