The Journal of Law and the Biosciences issues a call for papers.
American law on reproduction seems likely to change, perhaps radically, in 2022, as the U.S. Supreme Court considers state laws limiting abortion, both substantive, in the Mississippi ban on almost all abortions after 15 weeks, and procedural, in the Texas “bounty hunter” statute banning abortion after a “heart beat”. The Journal of Law and the Biosciences will produce a special issue on this general topic, with a focus on abortion law but including near-future issues for other human reproductive practices and technologies.
- Part I will appear by May 1, which is likely to be eight weeks before the Supreme Court’s decision in the Mississippi case.
- Part II, which will include rapid responses to the decision, will appear by October 1, on the eve of the next Supreme Court term.
- Submissions for Part I are due no later than January 15, 2022; submissions for Part II are due July 31, 2022.
- We particularly encourage shorter, tightly focused pieces and, in this context, we do not consider “speculative” a disadvantage. Our general policies, including exclusive submission and peer review, are set out on our webpage.
Submissions for this issue could be either articles or essays as described in those instructions. We particularly encourage shorter, tightly focused pieces. In this context, we do not consider “speculative” a disadvantage.
