Papers are selected through a rigorous peer review process. CELSE will consider empirical papers across all areas of law, although priority shall be given to papers with a European focus. Empirical analysis is understood to encompass computer-based text-mining techniques and, more generally, any systematic approach to quantitative data analysis. Only submissions in English are considered. While authors are strongly encouraged to submit works-in-progress, submissions should be completed drafts that present main findings. Submitted papers must be unpublished (and expected to be unpublished at the time of the conference). If accepted, authors will have an opportunity to submit a revised draft prior to the conference. Each paper will be assigned a discussant and authors of accepted papers are expected to be willing to act as discussants of another paper.
Although there is no commitment toward publication, CELSE speakers are invited to submit their papers to a special issue of the Review of Law and Economics. Submitted papers will be reviewed. This option does not forestall the possibility to submit such papers to other outlets, such as the Journal of Empirical Legal Studies or the International Review of Law and Economics, using their normal submission procedures.
