Submissions now open


We are now starting work on the second edition of ESAJ. Of course, what is a journal without essays it can publish? We therefore ask you to please send us essays written in the last semester that you think are particularly good and would be eager to turn into publishable material. Because we may have a large number of submissions, we ask that you choose these wisely (i.e., don't send in all your essays).
Upon receiving your submissions, we will review and shortlist the papers anonymously. If your essay is chosen, we will return it with 'major edits' or 'minor edits' and work with you in order to bring the paper up to a publishing standard.
We request that you send us the essays by the 6th of March so that we can publish a full-fledged edition by the end of this semester. Papers that are not sent in by this date will not be taken into consideration. Please send your essay submissions and/or questions to esaj@euc.eur.nl
