Call for New Submissions for Volume 9 (2022)


The Editorial Board invites submissions that address up-to-date legal issues and questions arising in Indonesia and the Global South countries. All submissions from socio-legal to theoretical will be considered for publication. However, preference will be given to manuscripts with comparative and cross-disciplinary approaches. This journal aspires to provide a comparative and interdisciplinary forum to disseminate up-to-date analysis on constitutionalism, human rights law, environmental law, technology law, and legal pluralism within the Global South perspective. 

The authors are advised to submit a manuscript that:
   ● discusses law and its social, economic, and political contexts in Indonesia and the Global South countries;
   ● brings Indonesia and the Global South perspectives to socio-legal issues of international concerns; or
   ● uses Indonesia and the Global South countries as a starting point for a comparative exploration of legal conversation.

Please note that this journal only accepts submissions in English. Manuscript submissions should be written between 8,000 and 14,000 words in length. The published papers were subject to a rigorous double-blind peer-review process by at least two experts. The Editor's final decision considered relevance to the journal's aims and scope, the quality of research and writing, and geographical diversity. The novelty of academic contribution was also an essential requirement. If you require any further information, help, or consultation on a potential submission, you can contact us by visiting our Support Center. 

English Proofreading Policy
All submissions must be in English and meet the high-quality standards set by the journal. If English is not your first language, we would appreciate it if your manuscript has passed the proofreading process by a native or a trusted proofreading institution. Authors are welcome to use professional writing services, which assist with the basic writing and construction of manuscripts. 

Submission Deadlines
Lentera Hukum is a periodical law journal, publishing three issues a year (April, July/August, and November). The review process applies the double-blind peer review method, in which case neither authors nor reviewers know each other’s identities. If the manuscript has passed the preliminary evaluation, editors would have delivered manuscripts to two reviewers who are experts in the field of the submitted manuscript.

All new submissions are suggested to be made at least 2-4 months before the publication of each issue. The deadlines for each issue are enumerated as follows:

Volume 9 Issue 1 (April 2022), deadline: 01 January 2022
Volume 9 Issue 2 (August 2022), deadline: 20 May 2022
