Content and Format
- We welcome guest submissions on all areas of corporate and commercial law that impact India.
- We prefer submissions that do not exceed 1,500 words in length. The title must not exceed 10 words.
- Footnotes must be kept to the minimum, if at all. Submissions with excessive footnoting will not be considered.
- Wherever a submission refers to case law or other resources, it must provide appropriate links in the main text itself. For Indian case law, contributors may provide links to the case, if available, at https://indiankanoon.org/, or the website of the relevant court. Factual assertions must be supported with appropriate links to sources.
- There is no need to provide links to Indian statutory materials that are well known, e.g. Companies Act, 2013 or the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996. However, links are preferable for recent amendments in Indian statutes or regulations or for references relating to foreign law.
- While discussing case law, please avoid references to “petitioner”, “appellant”, “respondent” and the like, and instead use the names of the parties.
- Analytical posts are preferred over descriptive ones. Posts will be considered for publication based on various factors, including relevance, quality, structure, logic and writing-style.
- Through their submissions, the contributors confirm that the work represents their original contribution, and that it has not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works.
- In case contributors have any actual or potential conflicts of interests in relation to the subject matter of their contribution, that must be disclosed.
- Submissions must be sent at [email protected].
- They must be in an MS Word document formatted using Times New Roman font, size 12, line spacing 1.5, style “Normal”.
- Authors must include their brief biographical information (in no more than two lines) at the top of the post below the title. See, e.g.: “Ms. X is a partner at ABC Law Firm in Mumbai”, or “Mr. Y is a 3rd year B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) student at PQR Law School in New Delhi”.
- Each submission must include up to three keywords from among those set out in the list of “Topics” in the right hand side bar on the Blog.
- Before submitting their posts, we strongly encourage prospective authors to review existing posts on the Blog to obtain a sense for both the substantive and formatting requirements.
- Each submission will be reviewed by one or more Editors of the Blog, who retain their absolute discretion in determining whether to accept a post and, if accepted, whether the post requires revisions. Contributors must work with the Editors to incorporate suggested revisions and comments. Given the large volume of submissions, the Editors are not in a position to provide feedback on each rejected submission.
- Posts initially carried on the Blog may be cross-posted on other websites or in print without prior permission. However, this is subject to the condition that the cross-posting prominently carries wording to the effect that the material was “first published on the IndiaCorpLaw Blog (https://indiacorplaw.in)”.
