What are the possible benefits of joining The CLR network?
First, publishing an article on our platform draws a significant number of readership and visibility to your existing work. This can help you to make an important impact beyond your organisation and area of expertise. With a diverse community of members and a wide-ranging readership from all corners of the globe, you can quickly disseminate and receive feedback on your research. Additionally, members have the opportunity to collaborate and publish on edited book projects across specific commercial law themes, get involved in thematic conferences, research bids, etc.
Do you publish commercial law themes on developed economies?
Yes – our primary goal is to bring to the public information regarding research findings and theories underpinning the interrelationship and usefulness of commercial laws and reform strategies in the underdeveloped and developing world. To achieve this goal, sometimes, it may be pertinent to consider commercial laws applicable in other jurisdictions, including developed countries that may have undergone institutional and social changes.
How frequently should I publish articles as a member?
There is no set requirement to publish a certain number of articles with us. However, we would recommend that you post at least once every six weeks or thereabout. This is especially true if you want to build up an international audience. It is a brilliant idea to post regularly to enable readers follow your work, and an opportunity for other researchers to have a sense of what you are currently working on to facilitate collaborative research opportunities.
Should I publish around an expert group or across multiple expert groups?
There are no restrictions. You can publish in as many expert groups as you want. However, if you want to consolidate your research profile, it is generally advisable to focus on one or a few.
