A Journal on Climate Change and the Law
A complex legal regime has evolved to frame climate governance, encompassing interconnected public international law, transnational law and private law elements. At the core of the international effort remain the UNFCCC and Kyoto Protocol, which have spawned innovative features such as carbon trading mechanisms and a sophisticated compliance regime. Municipal legislative action dealing with mitigation and adaptation is gathering pace.
The focus of the peer-reviewed journal Climate Law is on the many legal issues that arise internationally and at the state level as climate law continues to evolve.

Quoting from other publications
An author, when quoting from someone else's work or when considering reproducing figures or table from a book or journal article, should make sure that he is not infringing a copyright. Although in general an author may quote from other published works, he should obtain permission from the holder of the copyright if he wishes to make substantial extracts or to reproduce tables, plates or other figures. If the copyright holder is not the author of the quoted or reproduced material, it is recommended that the permission of the author should also be sought. Material in unpublished letters and manuscripts is also protected and must not be published unless permission has been obtained. Submission of a paper will be interpreted as a statement that the author has obtained all the necessary permission. A suitable acknowledgement of any borrowed material must always be made.
POLICY ON ETHICS
Climate Law affirms that academic misconduct, in the form of fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism, jeopardizes the success of academic endeavour.
Climate Law uses a system of double-blind review for all articles being considered for publication. Since reviewers are selected for their expertise in the field of the journal, any misconduct of the type referred to is highly likely to be detected at the review stage and brought to the notice of the Editor-in-Chief.
According to Climate Law’s submission guidelines, each author of an article submitted for publication assumes full responsibility, within the limits of his or her professional competence, for the accuracy of the work. Authors submit articles with the understanding that work must be original and not have been submitted elsewhere.
Questions raised about the conduct of the research or its presentation will be evaluated preliminarily by the Editor-in-Chief and, if appropriate, in consultation with the journal’s distinguished Editorial Board. If deemed appropriate, the matter will be referred to the institution where the work in question was performed. Climate Law expects that the matter would be reviewed in accordance with the institution’s procedures for handling allegations of misconduct. Every effort will be made to ensure that the process is fair, both for those accused of misconduct and for those who have raised the issue of misconduct.
In the event that a published article is to be retracted, a statement of retraction will be published in thejournal. The journal carries an errata page, in which errors brought to the attention of the Editor-in-Chief are notified to the public.
