Editorial Guidelines

Our Policy

We welcome articles which address current trends and hot topics in international arbitration, irrespectively of age, gender, race or nationality of the author.

Our authors are free to choose the subject matters they wish to write about, subject to approval of our editorial team.

We do not discourage articles that merely summarize cases, discuss basic aspects of international arbitration or simply engage into a reflection on the development of international arbitration - we do not discourage potential authors at all - as long as the articles meet our quality standards and are relevant for our readers around the world.

Welcome aboard of YAR!

The review process

All articles submitted to YAR are reviewed in a two-stage process to determine if they are appropriate for publication. Each article undergoes a review by our editorial team who has expertise in international arbitration.

Members of our editorial team base their evaluations on the following criteria:

  1. Is the topic of the submitted article relevant for our readers?
  2. How well was the topic covered? Was it a thorough analysis and description of the topic?
  3. Is the article original and not a rehash of what has been published previously?
  4. Is it practical? Can our readers use the information to benefit their daily work as lawyers and careers?
  5. Is it technically correct and sound?
  6. Does the English language used on the article meet our standards?
  7. Is the topic timely? Does the article reflect the latest trends? Does it represent a new development or innovation of which our readers should be aware?
  8. Is the article presented clearly and concisely?

The editorial team will recommend that the article be published, revised, or rejected. They also provide reasons for their recommendations and suggestions on how the technical content of the article can be improved. The author will be informed once a final decision has been reached.


Once we define a publication date, we will edit your article and send you the edited version. Please review the editing, make any changes and return the article within five days of receipt (by e-mail). During the editing process, our editorial team may contact you to discuss any matters pertaining to the content of your article.
