De Jure Law Journal has moved to a continuous publication model as from January 2019. This means that as soon as an article is ready to be published, it will be released online immediately, rather than waiting for other articles in the issue to be completed, resulting in faster access to the final version of the article. This is a practice endorsed by reputable Journals both locally and internationally. The aim of continuous publication is to ensure that authors’ work is published with efficiency and speed without compromising on quality. Social media activity can be at the article-level. Articles are published as and when they are ready, so tweets can occur as frequently as articles are published rather than waiting on the issue publication.

Authors are encouraged to submit their contributions online by visiting the De Jure Law Journal website where the guidelines for the submission of contributions are available for easy reference.
