The research paper should be around 5000-8000 words, excluding footnotes. If your paper is longer than this, please contact the Centre for Aerospace and Defence Laws (CADL). We do on very rare occasions consider articles of more than 8,000 words for the journal, but such an article would have to be of exceptional quality and importance to justify its inclusion in the journal: the longer the piece, the higher the bar to acceptance.
For short articles, the length should be around 3000-5000 words, plus footnotes.
For Book reviews and Case Law studies, we are flexible in relation to the length/word limit. But we suggest less than 6000 words, plus notes as rough guide.
Please provide a word count for both text and notes on the first page of the article.
