The BRICS Law Journal contributes to international discussion on research journals

On 8 August, the BRICS Law Journal hosted a webinar dedicated to the development and promotion of research journals. Editors, researchers, and authors from countries across the world came together to share their experience and knowledge on how to improve the quality, significance, and credibility of articles for publication, and thus the success of research journals.

During the event, guest speakers delivered presentations on the role of international journals, journal policies, and editorial processes. Particularly insightful were the topics on how to help authors promote their papers and how to establish effective collaboration between the editorial board, reviewers, and authors. 

The guest speakers, each with extensive experience in the field of research journals, included Elena Gladun, the Editor-in-Chief of BRICS Law Journal; Niteesh Kumar Upadhyay representing Galgotias University; Elizaveta Gromova representing the International Journal of Law in Changing World; Daniel Brantes Ferreira from the Brazilian Center for Mediation and Arbitration; and Aleksandra Zorina representing the University of Tyumen. 

It was especially gratifying to see that the webinar attracted not only representatives from the BRICS countries but also participants from other regions of the world, including the United States of America. This demonstrates that research journals attract attention and engage the interest of readers from different backgrounds yet with common interests, allowing for fruitful discussions and the exchange of ideas and knowledge.

The participants found the webinar to be highly informative and so useful that they decided to meet quarterly, organize more thematic webinars, and provide authors with mailings on major journal news.

The BRICS Law Journal thanks all webinar participants for their productive work! 

We look forward to taking part in similar events in the future and to seeing our friends, authors, and colleagues again.

The BRICS Law Journal is more than just a research journal - it is a community of thoughtful people who are always ready to assist each other in research and development.


Appeal of the editor-in-chief

I am very happy and privileged to greet our readers and authors in 2021.

The year just ended was extraordinary. The global pandemic forced all of us to change our familiar daily habits, lifestyles and accustomed ways of going about our work and research activities. Yet, this difficult time did not and in this new year will not discourage the work of the BRICS Law Journal. Our contributing authors persevere in their research and submission of excellent articles; our readers are following up and citing the articles; and our editorial team compiles issues and organizes events with professional dedication. Moreover, with this new year, the Journal has reached a new benchmark and enters a new stage of its development.
