A New Journal on Roman Law and the Roman Law Tradition

[We have the following announcement.]

Interpretatio Prudentium - Roman Law and Roman Law Tradition in Review is a scientific Journal on Roman Law and Roman Law Tradition, edited by the Legal Theory and History – Research Center of the University of Lisbon (THD-ULisboa) in the course of the activities undertaken by the line of research "Roman Law Tradition in Action: the Lusophone experiences".

Interpretatio Prudentium has the purpose of disclosing results of scientific research that may contribute to a more accurate knowledge of the roman juridical experience but also of the different paths undertaken by the Roman Law Tradition, in particular of the roman roots of the different juridical cultures of Portuguese language. Simultaneously, the Journal intends to identify fractures and continuities within the Roman-Pandectist law tradition while promoting a critical vision of contemporary experiences.

In compliance with the utmost demanding criteria of scientific production and dissemination of results, Interpretatio Prudentium adopts the process of double-blind peer review and will be both published in paper and digital format, made freely available on its website. The Journal is also intended to be indexed within the leading science databases.

Interpretatio Prudentium
's Editing Committee invites the academic community to submit unpublished papers (monographs or reviews of recent publications) to be included in its first issue, to be released in Spring of 2016.  The Journal publishes in any Roman or Germanic language. The monographs, with a maximum of 50.000 characters (spaces not included), should be submitted to publication along with a summary and keywords, written in the original language of the article and in an adittional language. Reviews should be up to 10.000 characters.



We take this opportunity to suggest the following themes for the articles and reviews: the importance of the Roman Law and of the Roman Law Tradition to the contemporary Law; methodological issues in the study of the Roman juridical experience and Roman Law Tradition; the reception of the Pandectistic in Portugal and Brazil; the concept of interpretatio prudentium.

The submitted articles are reviewed by members of the Scientific Committee of the Journal involved in the process of double-blind peer review ensuring that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed throughout the review process.

The submitted articles should be sent in Word format to the Journal's e-mail address (interpretatio@fd.ulisboa.pt) with a copy to the editorial secretary (claudiaeliasduarte@fd.ulisboa.pt).

The deadline for the submission of papers is February 15, 2016.

Besides the sections of articles and reviews, Interpretatio Prudentium includes a section devoted to critical reviews of books and Roman Law news. The Authors and Editors of works related to the Roman juridical experience and Roman Tradition who may be interested in publicizing these works are invited to send a copy to the Draft Committee accompanied by a summary of approximately 250 words. The titles sent in duplicate will be subjected to a critical review to be published on the next issue of the Journal. The received works will be deposited in the Library of the University of Lisbon School of Law. The release of these published works will also be publicized at the Interpretatio Prudentium's website, with a book cover image and a reference to its title, summary, publishing house and ISBN.
