Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Law

The „catalyser” of Central European agricultural, environmental and energy law

 

Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Law (hereinafter referred to as: JAEL) is the English name of Hungary-based journal ’Agrár- és Környezetjog’.

 

JAEL is a unique and special journal of Central Europa that publishes comprehensive and specific articles of high academic quality in the field of agricultural, environmental and energy law with regard to the strict bond between the Central European region and the agriculture. Primarily, it publishes the articles in English language in order to break down the obstacles deriving from the different languages in front of jurisprudence and to make information change between the region’s countries and the constructive critical comparison possible.

JAEL is a peer-reviewed journal of CEDR Hungarian Agricultural Association, which is published twice a year in electronic form (epa.oszk.hu/01000/01040).

 

JAEL’s emphasised aim is the further development of not only Hungary, but all Central European countries’ jurisprudence, as well as the integration of agricultural, environmental and other related areas and branches of law to the international academic life. Due to this, the Editorial Board of JAEL considers important that the authors submit their manuscripts in English or exceptionally in German or French (hereinafter together referred to as official languages), but it also wishes to create the opportunity to publish the articles in the author’s native language. However, the title of the article, the abstract and the key words have to be submitted in English in all cases. With this solution – according to the opinion of the Editorial Board – JAEL can contribute to the development of jurisprudence of the Central European region’s countries, but it can also make the achievements of national jurisprudence visible and available for the international academic life. Besides it, thanks to the authors of foreign languages the Hungarian experts can approach the international and European trends to the Hungarian legislator and „law-applier”.

 

JAEL’s primary objective is the publication of original studies in the fields of agricultural law, environmental law and energy law from legal authors and even from non-legal authors, if they are met the requirements of JAEL. Beyond the publication of scientific studies, on an ad hoc basis authors can publish other scientific works separately in the JAEL (for examples book reviews, summaries of the conclusions of conferences etc.). In the context of these studies, the peer-review aspects are practised implicitly.

 

           

In JAEL it is possible to publish special issues (for example conference-related issue or an issue of students’ publications), for which the rules of peer-reviewing are partially applicable.

III. Summary about Harvard Reference Style in JAEL

 

In JAEL a source of scientific literature shall be referenced in a footnote with abbreviated content of data and in the bibliography with full content of data. The latter one shall be found in the end of the study.

 

The order of sources in the bibliography has to be listed according to the alphabetic order of the authors’ surnames. If there are at least two authors with the same surname, the basic of the order is determined by the authors’ first name (in this case the initial letter of the author’s first name shall also be used in the footnote). If a source is written by at least two authors, the basic of the order is determined by the first author’s name concerning the given source. If at least two works of the same author are cited,  in the order the earlier work shall be prior to the posterior one in a chronological order. If an author has more works in the same year, differentiate each work with abc-initials after the year (1983a, 1983b, 1983c, 1983d etc.).
