The Global Journal of Animal Law is an open-access legal journal. At GJAL we embrace the dynamic landscape of animal law scholarship and aspire to align more closely with our name by fostering a global platform. 

We recognize the diversity of animal law scholarship as a growing field and welcome multidisciplinary or comparative studies, as well as submissions on animal law as a standalone legal field. If you have any questions about whether your work aligns with the Journal's scope, please do not hesitate to submit your manuscript. Our editorial review will determine its suitability for publication. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.

The Journal has two main sections. Articles are always subjected to a double-blind peer review. The reviewer(s) will assess the whole of the manuscript for its factual accuracy, methodological soundness and interestingness. The length of the manuscript should not exceed 10,000 words (footnotes excluded), though exceptions can be made. Notes are shorter contributions. A Note can, for instance, be a survey of the animal welfare legislation of a particular jurisdiction.

In addition to the aforementioned main sections, the Journal also publishes Dissertation Summaries of no more than 1,000 words in order to increase knowledge of recent advancements in the field of animal law. The dissertation need not have been written in English.
