Revue générale de droit

The Revue générale de droit is the journal of the University of Ottawa's Faculty of Law - Civil Law Section. Since 1970, the Revue has published, in French or in English, original articles addressing legal phenomena in the broad sense as well as socio-legal issues through diverse scientific approaches, including inter- and multidisciplinary approaches, comparative law and critical positivism. As such, the Revue has published scholarly articles on various contemporary topics including street gangs, analysis methods on the impact of children's rights, environmental justice, human rights and the environment, financial deviance, weakened confidence towards the investment industry, Aboriginal customary adoption and the conclusion of treaties between the federal Crown and Aboriginal peoples. More generally, the Revue has also published texts regarding current issues faced by the State and civil society in a world marked by rapid technological evolution, market volatility, diverging individual and collective interests and plural human relationships.

The Revue also welcomes critical book reviews and case comments in French or English. To ensure their quality, all articles submitted to the Revue générale de droit are subjected to a rigorous peer-review process by two academic experts in the field covered by the article. The Revue is managed by the Director, who is a tenured professor from the Faculty of Law's Civil Law Section, and is assisted by an administrative assistant, as well as the journal's faculty and scientific committees. The Revue générale de droit is published twice a year, in June and in December.

Two prizes are awarded annually to authors having published in the Revue générale de droit.

 

Germain-Brière Award

Established in honour of Professor Germain Brière, who was Professor Emeritus at the Civil Law Section, the prize is awarded annually to the best article published in the Revue by a junior author (less than 10 years since the first university degree) or senior author, on an alternating yearly basis.

Johane-Paris Award

Established in honour of Ms. Johane Paris, who was an administrative assistant of publications at the Revue for more than thirty years, the prize of a minimal amount of $400 is awarded annually to the best paper published in the Revue whose author is a student enrolled in a Faculty of Law.

Editorial Policy

The Revue is published twice a year, in June and December. Authors are kindly, asked to comply with the following submissions instructions.

I. Exclusivity and copyright

The Revue publishes only original and unpublished texts that have not been published in any form, or which have not been simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.

The author grants permission to the Revue to publish his or her article, and agrees not to publish or have published, the same text elsewhere, in any form, including on the SSRN (Social Science Research Network) website, within 90 days following its publication in the Revue générale de droit.

These rights and obligations are established in a publishing and distribution contract to be signed by the parties after the manuscript is accepted for publication. After the expiry of this 90-day period, the author is free to publish his or her text elsewhere, provided that a mention is added on the first page that the article has already been published in the Revue générale de droit and that the reference is indicated.

II. Physical presentation of manuscript

A. Limit. The Revue générale de droit welcomes authors to limit the length of their manuscripts to approximately 15 000 words, including footnotes. Texts whose length excessively exceeds this limit may not be considered for publication.

B. Layout. Texts should be double-spaced, letter sized format (21,5 x 28 cm / 8,5 x 11 in.) in MS Word format.

C. Citation style. Authors are asked to follow the citation method established in the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, 8th Edition (Toronto: Carswell, 2014). Footnotes must be double-spaced.

D. The author must indicate his or her position, degrees held, institutional affiliations and all other relevant information, using an asterisk after his or her name.

E. Abstract, keywords and table of contents. Manuscripts must be accompanied by an abstract in both French and English, consisting of a single paragraph for each language, not exceeding 250 words, and a minimum of 6 keywords, in each language. A table of contents must precede the article, consisting of the divisions and subdivisions of the text. These must refer to the pages of the text and be inserted into the text. The Revue générale de droit adheres to the following order of subdivisions:

I. Heading

   A. Headng

       1. Heading

           a. Heading

               i. Heading

III. Evaluation and editing process of the manuscript

Articles are assessed both on the content (originality, rigor and depth of analysis, contribution to the advancement of knowledge; interest that the text can generate in scientific and legal communities) as well as the form (literary quality, logic and effectiveness of the structure, rigorous use of references and footnotes). The decision whether to publish a manuscript is dependent on the reports of the two external evaluators; these reports are usually given to the author of the manuscript for consultation within four to eight weeks of having submitting the manuscript to the Revue. Based on these reports, the author of the manuscript is invited to make the changes or clarifications deemed essential by the evaluators. A period of one to four weeks is usually granted to the author to make these changes, depending on the nature and extent of the modifications proposed. Once the author has received galley proofs of his or her text, he or she has five working days to review them. At this stage, major changes to the text are not normally accepted, unless the state of the law has changed, from the date of acceptance of the manuscript, to the point that the article must be updated.

IV. Complimentary copies for the author

Upon publication of the Revue générale de droit, the author shall receive, through the publisher Wilson & Lafleur, two complimentary copies of the issue in which his or her article appears.
