About the journal

Welcome to the journal's website.

The Groningen Journal of European Law (GJEL) is a peer reviewed and open-access journal. The journal is led by advanced students and researchers of the University of Groningen, and is supported by the university’s European and Economic Law Department.

We publish analytical articles within the dynamic and wide-ranging scope of European Union law. This is not limited to the transnational elements of the EU, but also includes legal issues within the national spheres of the Member States that have an impact on the European Union. While GJEL publishes solely in English, the journal is adamant about giving thorough treatment to different perspectives and therefore strongly encourages its authors to make use of non-English sources when appropriate.

Furthermore, the journal seeks to create a legal forum that is both accessible for authors and high-quality, this is why all articles are carefully assessed by experts within the field before they are published digitally. While the journal seeks to only publish articles of an authoritative and high standard, early-career scholars should not feel discouraged from submitting their articles. 

We accept and publish articles on a rolling basis. The journal's first volume is opens September 2021, and closes June 2022. Submissions are currently open.
