About the journal
The Estey Journal of International Law and Trade Policy is a venue for the exchange of ideas pertaining to the international commercial and its legal environment. It publishes high quality scholarly research to stimulate dialogue and debate on both topics of current interest to the international community and longer-standing issues of international relations. To ensure the timely and widespread dissemination of research, the Journal is published solely in an electronic (web based) format.
The Journal encourages scholars and practitioners to submit papers for consideration for publication on any aspect of international law or trade policy pertaining to the international commercial environment. From time to time the Journal will publish special issues on particular topics and individuals with proposals for special issues should contact the editor.
The Journal aims to be truly cross-disciplinary and publishes articles which are accessible to all those who have an interest in the international commerce and its legal environment.
The Estey Journal of International Law and Trade Policy encourages authors to submit original scholarly manuscripts on any aspect of international law, trade policy or other areas of international relations that pertain directly to the international commercial environment. Authors from the legal profession, international organizations, governments and the private sector as well as those from the academic community are encouraged to submit their research.
To ensure that The Estey Journal of International Law and Trade Policy publishes research of the highest quality, all manuscripts will be double blind reviewed (neither the reviewers not the authors will be informed of the others’ identity). To ensure that publication takes place in a timely manner, all aspects of the editorial process – manuscript submission, review, correspondence and manuscript preparation will be done electronically. In keeping with the policy of timely publication, reviewers are asked either to accept or reject manuscripts as submitted. While reviewers may choose to make comments for the authors, there will be no process for revising and re-submitting manuscripts. All editorial decisions are final. The editor, however, can ask for changes which will improve the manuscript’s accessibility and readability.
The objective of The Estey Journal of International Law and Trade Policy is to be interdisciplinary and accessible to a wide audience. It is also aware that excellent research may require complex theoretical development, extensive background material and evidence or the articulation of arguments of logic. To serve both these aspects of scholarly research, the Journal requires that all submitted manuscripts be in the form of a short and complete readable paper (approximately 3600-4500 words). In addition, authors are encouraged to also provide a Scholarly Annex to their submission that includes the more formal research which supports the paper. The Journal will review and publish both the paper and the Scholarly Annex.
To facilitate referencing and reporting, the Journal will be organized in volumes and issues, but in keeping with timely publication and the electronic format, manuscripts will be published immediately upon final acceptance. Volumes and issues will be closed by calendar dates and new volumes and issues opened concurrently.
The Journal will also publish special issues on a particular topic from time to time. Individuals with topics for special issues who are willing to act as guest editors are asked to contact the editor to discuss their proposals. As the international commercial environment unfolds, new themes may be added for regular publication as needed.

About the Estey Centre for Law and Economics in International Trade
The idea of an Estey Centre for Law and Economics in International Trade was conceived some time during the mid-1990’s when the late Willard Z. (Bud) Estey, a retired Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, initiated discussions with the then-Dean of Law at the University of Saskatchewan about his interest in establishing a legacy by raising funds for a Chair in International Trade Law at the University’s College of Law. Mr. Estey was subsequently persuaded to think in terms of a centre with a much broader mandate than simply a Chair, and thus the Centre was created.
