Call for Papers to the attention of doctoral student interested in the subject of international law of the sea

ARJIL TM


IBN HAWQAL (943-988)

 977 - The Configuration of the Earth - Surat al-Ardh - صورة الارض 

The Editorial Committee of the Arab Journal of International Law (ARJIL) launches the present call for papers to the attention of doctoral student interested in the subject of international law of the sea. It is an opportunity for doctoral student to familiarize themselves with the methodology of research, and also broaden their professional and academic network.

The oceans and seas are not ruled by a legal vacuum. On the contrary, there is a specific branch of international law[i] dedicated to them, namely the international law of the sea[ii], whose goal is to provide some rules in the conflicting relationships between States and the other physical or juridical persons in the sea.[iii]

Its historic evolution was motivated by political, economic and security interests, and more recently scientific and environmental interests, which have paved to the way to conflicting claims on the exercise of exclusive rights (sovereign and jurisdictional) by States.

Of utmost importance in the international law of the sea is the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (1982), described as “the constitution of oceans”.[iv] It provided two fundamental principles. The first concerns the principle of the freedom of navigation in the high sea, advanced by the Dutch scholar Hugo Grotius whose book “mare liberum sive de jure quod batavis competit ad indicana commercial” published in 1609[v], claimed the right to navigate and trade for any ships throughout the world.[vi] The second principle is related to the sovereignty. The Convention was thus regarded as a “gift box” for coastal States which clearly appear as the winners of the United Nations third conference on the law of the sea. Indeed, until 200 miles away from its coast, a State is not bound to establish that it has some sovereign rights, provided that it has demarcated its zone under the conditions provided by the Convention with its neighbouring or adjacent States. Once these questions are resolved, a State possesses an exclusive economic zone until 200 miles which includes the continental shelf whatever its nature and the seabed. Moreover, the coastal State may request the extension of the continental shelf until 350 miles, provided it complies with the procedure provided by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (Article 76, Annex II)[vii].

The application of the sovereignty principle may lead to a series of conflicting extension of the limits of national jurisdiction on the seabed. As far as the principle of freedom is concerned, it contributes to an abusive exploitation of natural resources qualified by the approach of “first come, first served”. Two scenarios, which according to M. Pardo, might cause undesirable consequences, namely economic injustice and risks of pollution. It is perfectly summarized as “the poor are getting poorer and poorer, the rich are getting richer and richer” [viii]. In order to create a “trilogy of needs”, between the needs of the industrialized countries, the needs of developing countries, and the needs of marine ecosystem, a fourth principle appeared, that is the world heritage of humanity enshrined in the part XI of the Convention.[ix]

In this context, the department “Seas and Oceans” submits to the interested doctoral student a non-exhaustive list of subjects which may guide to their submission. The department welcomes submissions which focus on the realities of the Arab World and the Mediterranean:

New Book : THE FUNCTIONAL–COST ANALYSIS AND TURNOVER CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

ARJIL TM


 

A new book is published by the Arab Journal of International Law, the following is a brief overview about it:


A collective monograph ‘The functional–cost analysis and turnover capital management’  is a unique manuscript, concretely emphasizing  the role of functional–cost analysis in the turnover capital management.

The research is conducted  on trends’ data of the real sector of the Russian economy over a long-term period.

The manuscript provides a complete and systematic interpretation of the category “capital” through the understanding of its formation characteristics.

The paper introduces the theoretical and methodological foundations of organization improvement and the conducting of the functional–cost analysis in contemporary conditions. The quantitative relation between production quality with the manufacturing cost as well as sales volume is particularly examined. The authors pay special attention to methodological foundations of the functional–cost analysis,  which they have developed in order to demonstrate the application of the functional–cost analysis in the sphere of management of production companies within new economic activity conditions. The conception of the functional–cost analysis management is introduced, including its organizational structure, the financial mechanism and incentives for the application and development of its results within the process of transition to a market economy.

The book is recommended for production enterprise managers’ training, high-schools’ staff, economists, scientists, as well as post-graduate students.

Call for paper 2020-2021

ARJIL TM





Arab Journal of International Law

(Final paper) Submission deadline is November 30th - 2020

Background

 ARJIL’s field of interest extends to all disciplines of Public International Law, but also to its sociological (Sociology of International Law) and philosophical (Philosophy of International Law) foundations. 

Thus, the journal will focus on a variety of themes related to the economic sphere (International Economic Law and International Investment Law), the growth sphere (International Development Law), the ecological figure (International Environmental Law), the scope of human rights (International Human Rights Law) and the humanitarian area (International Humanitarian Law).

A special place will be given to critical questions linked to climate change, migratory flows and epidemics, which require a significant scientific and intellectual commitment on the part of researchers in International Law and more broadly in social sciences.

One of the major motivations behind the launching of this initiative is the insufficiency of studies linked to International Law and the various problems and tensions which shape the Arab World. ARJIL comes in handy to fill in this gap.

The geographical and institutional framework of ARJIL is the Arab World. However, we remain open to international variables and their various theoretical implications, as well as to the transformations underway on the international scene and the regional constructions of International Law (Case of the European Union).

The Journal is Published  both in print and online versions. Arab Journal of International Law publishes research paper in the field of:

Date of Publishing : ARJIL is inviting papers for Vol. 1 No. 1 which is scheduled to be published in February, 2021.

Acceptance Notification : within 15 days from the date of manuscript submission

Submission deadline : November 30, 2020

Send your manuscript to the editor at:

Author Guideline

Manuscript Preparation

1. Language

The language of the manuscript must be in English (either American or British standard, but not a mixture of both), Arabic or French.

2. Length of Paper

The length of the paper should not exceed 25 pages. Paper containing more than 25 pages words will be returned to the author(s) to abridge. Articles should be typed in double-space (including footnotes and references) on one side of the paper only (preferably A4) with wide margins. Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible, but not at the expense of clarity.

3. Title Page

Title page is a separate page and should be before the text. It should include the following information:

Title:

Title should be concise and informative. Try to avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.

Author’s Names and Affiliations:

Please indicate the given name and family name clearly. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name, and, if available, the e-mail address, and telephone number of each author.

Corresponding Author:

Clearly indicate who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing, publication and also post-publication. Ensure that telephone numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address.

Sponsoring Information:

If the research is sponsored or supported by an organization, please indicate it.

4. Abstract

A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length of 150 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separate from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References should therefore be avoided, but if essential, they must be cited in full, without reference to the reference list.

5. Keywords

Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 5 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of').

6. Subdivision of the Article

Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1, 2. (then 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2), 1.2, etc. The abstract is not included in section numbering.

7. Table and Figures

Present tables and figures at the end of the article or in line with text. Please note that the article will be published in black and white.

8. References

Author(s) should follow the latest edition of APA style in referencing. Please visit www.apastyle.org to learn more about APA style

Citations in the Text:

Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Avoid citation in the abstract. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.

Reference List:

References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters "a", "b", "c", etc., placed after the year of publication.

9. Submission Preparation Checklist

Before submitting the manuscript, author(s) should check the following list:

1.   The submission has not been previously published, nor it is submitted to another journal for consideration. Published manuscripts require reference.

2.   The submission file is in Microsoft Word file/ PDF format.

3.   Manuscript has been made in the light of Journal’s author guidelines.

4.   Author(s) did not mention his or her name and affiliation in the main text

5.   Author(s) has read all the guideline of the journal.

Copyright:

Copyrights for articles published in Arab Journal of International Law (ARJIL) are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author's responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author. 

Publication Fee 

There are no publication fees for the current issue, but this is subject to change in future issues if the committee decides to do so.

Review Process 

Arjil will not accept or publish manuscripts in its journal without prior peer review. There will be a review process of manuscripts by one or more independent referees who are conversant in the pertinent subject area.

The editor evaluates the recommendation and notifies the author of the manuscript status. The manuscript may be:



  • Accepted for publication as is
  • Accepted for publication with minor changes, with no re-review necessary
  • Accepted for publication after substantial revision and additional review
  • Rejected

The comments of the anonymous reviewers will be forwarded to the authors, and when the authors are ready to submit their revised manuscripts, they read the comments of the editors and reviewers, and respond to them by telling what modifications they have made in their manuscript or why they have not made the suggested changes.

Material which has been previously copyrighted, published, or accepted for publication will not be considered for publication in the journals.

The review process will ensure that all authors have equal opportunity for publication of their papers. Acceptance and scheduling of publication of papers in these periodicals will not be impeded by added criteria and procedures beyond those contained in the review process.

The editorial board is highly committed to the quick review process of the paper, but not with the sacrifice of the right judgement of a paper. The review process takes maximum two weeks.
