How to submit your manuscript?

All manuscripts should be submitted to the journal by the online submission system (https://journal.unnes.ac.id/sju/index.php/digest/index). Submissions can be made by single or multiple authors. Once submitted, the author can track the submission and communicate with the editors via the online journal management system. Articles can be submitted at any time throughout the year. However, as we publish in themes, it is advisable to consider the forthcoming topic as phrased in the call for papers before submitting (see our homepage announcement). If you do submit a work that does not fit within the current theme, we will keep your article on file to consider at a later stage.

The Digest: Journal of Jurisprudence and Legisprudence encourages authors to contact the editorial board ([email protected]) with ideas for articles or case notes they are planning to write. The editorial board is more than happy to discuss these ideas and how well they fit within the journal with the authors.

Please note that all submissions automatically pass through an anti-plagiarism check. To avoid relays/rejections, please ensure that all content that has been sourced from elsewhere clearly includes citation details and quotation marks, where appropriate.
