Submission Guidelines

I. Submission Categories

The RSRR invites papers under the following categories:

  • Articles (5,000 to 10,000 words) - A comprehensive and thorough analysis of issues related to the theme of the Journal.

  • Short Notes (3,500 to 5,000 words) - A note containing brief, terse and pointed arguments revolving around a specific, current issue or issue of importance which may not have received due research.

  • Case Comments (2,000 to 4,000 words) - An academic writing that analyses or is a critique of a recent case.

  • Legislative Comments (2,500 to 4,000 words) - A comment that analyses the objective of the legislation and analyses the legal impact of the same.

  • Normative Law Articles (3,000 to 5,000 words) - These will explore the opinion of students relating to the specific legislations involved in the theme of the Journal.
