ScienceOpen’s network of over 77 million publications is constantly expanding with new research titles, books, and journals covering various fields of study and bringing the most recent scientific advancements and innovative discoveries in their fields of interest.
We have previously written on our blog about our content covering fields such as humanities, biology, agriculture, and rare disease research, and today we would like to promote some of the law-related content that has been featured in various topical collections from prestigious university presses, research institutions, and publishing houses.
Our ever-expanding legal content covers a wide range of geographical areas, jurisprudential theories, and legal systems from around the world.
Common Law studies by University of Buckingham Press
The Denning Law Journal, published by the University of Buckingham Press, is one of the most prestigious open-access journals in law, featuring research in international law, legal studies, and legal history.
Lord Alfred Thompson Denning was a Populist English judge who was known as a fighter for the underdog and a defender of the little man’s rights against big business.
The Journal publishes original articles that seek to promote the values cherished by Lord Denning, such as individual liberty, independence from state intervention, human rights preservation, preserving the traditions of judicial independence, integrity, and creativity, global libertarianism, and so on.
DLJ provides a forum for the most comprehensive discussion of issues arising in the common law world and the Commonwealth, as well as broader global and international issues of current concern.

A law review of the European Union by UCL Press
On our discovery network, it appears that law research and open access go hand in hand. Europe and the World: A law review is another open access, fully peer-reviewed journal that aims to contribute to legal scholarship on Europe’s place in the world.
This journal primarily publishes legal doctrinal and theoretical analyses, but it also publishes multi-disciplinary work as well as contributions from political science and international relations with an external perspective on the law of the EU’s external relations.
‘Europe and the World: A Law Review’ provides a forum for national, international, and EU perspectives to meet and engage. As a result, the journal does not follow the traditional distinctions between EU, international, and national law.
Aside from the main collection, ‘Europe and the World: A Law Review’ has a number of featured topical collections dedicated to special editions of the journal. This is just one of the many ways ScienceOpen can customize their publishing solutions for its publishers, helping to increase visibility on our network while also facilitating information dissemination in the online publishing landscape.
Simply search for the term ‘Europe and the World’ under the collections on our search engine, and different collections will appear, covering topics such as: Extraterritoriality of EU Law and Human Rights after Lisbon; Considering EU External Relations After Brexit; Reflections on Opinion 1/17 (CETA), and so on.
The research titles featured in the main collection, covers topics like:
- EU–UK institutional arrangements and Brexit: a view from Switzerland
- The EU in multilateral environmental compliance mechanisms: an outside view
- The UN Security Council and EU CSDP operations: exploring EU military operations from an outside perspective
- The integration paradox: an ILC view on the EU contribution to the codification and development of rules of general international law
- CSDP and the development of the ‘Global EU’: The progress of EU autonomy in the shadow of Brexit

At ScienceOpen, all reviews are moderated by ORCID to ensure a level of quality control that goes beyond status or any sort of academic hierarchy, and they are published with a Creative Commons Attribution License CC-BY (4.0) license and a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) from CrossRef, just like any other formal research publication.
This means that reviews are reusable, citable, and permanent records of your reviewing activities, assisting in the development of your researcher profile.
