For almost five years now, Christopher Schmidt has been the editor of the peer-reviewed journal Law & Social Inquiry. In Tips on Writing for a Peer-Reviewed Journal on Legal History Blog, he offers sound advice on submitting scholarship to a peer-reviewed law journal, concluding “The peer review process provides information. More often than not, this information—the work of an overwhelmingly conscientious group of reviewers and editors—is quite valuable. But like all information, it can be flawed. It’s subject to interpretation. If your reviewers are divided, and the journal editors choose not to accept your article, then your job is to make use of the information you’ve gained. Figure out which critiques are valid and which ones are not. Then revise the manuscript and send it off to another journal.” — Joe
