Vienna Journal on International Constitutional Law
Submissions & Contact

The Vienna Journal on International Constitutional Law welcomes the submission of unsolicited manuscripts.
Submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis. However, we encourage authors to submit manuscripts as early as possible.

The Journal's Board of Editors is convinced that the length of a contribution does not necessarily add to its quality. Thus the Journal strongly prefers articles under 80,000 characters in length including footnotes. The Journal will usually not publish articles exceeding 100,000 characters.

Please submit your manuscript via ScholarOne.
