The Canadian Yearbook of International Law - Call for Submissions

The Canadian Yearbook of International Law, Canada’s leading peer-reviewed international legal journal, invites submissions of articles, notes and comments, in English or in French, that advance critical thinking in all areas of public or private international law.​

Submissions for each annual volume are encouraged by 31 January (although submissions may be considered at any time as the Yearbook has a rolling acceptance policy and publishes online throughout the year until each annual volume is filled). Detailed submission instructions are available at the following link: Submission Instructions.

Authors may opt for Open Access publication, potentially at no or discounted cost if their institution has a Read and Publish agreement with Cambridge University Press. Further information regarding the Yearbook’s Open Access Policy and Read and Publish agreements is available at the following links: Open Access and Read and Publish Agreements.

The Yearbook awards, from time to time, the Charles B Bourne Article Prize to the author of an article published in the Yearbook that makes an outstanding contribution to international law. The prize was established in honour of Charles B Bourne, founding editor-in-chief of the Yearbook from 1963 to 1992. The prize comes with an award of CDN$2500 as well as a US$250 voucher for Cambridge University Press publications.
