Faculty Teaching Support

Article Submissions

Below are websites to help you with article publication. If you need assistance, please contact the library at x3289.

The Law Journal Rankings project lists journals in many subject areas. Choose your subject area from the drop down menu and then click on the blue SUBMIT button.  The links include contact information for the journal. 

The Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is often used for pre-prints; accounts are free. For more information, see this article about SSRN and submitting an article.

The school has an account with BePress Expresso, which can submit your article to over 550 law journals. You will need a personal account for submission; you must use your FAMU email address for this. See the author FAQ for details and instructions.

Spotlight on Databases

World Trials Library (HeinOnline)

HeinOnline’s World Trials collection contains not only trial transcripts and other critical court documents, but also
trial-related resources such as monographs which analyze and debate the decisions of famous trials. It also includes
biographies of many of the greatest trial lawyers in history.

State Statutes: A Historical Archive (HeinOnline)

State Statutes: A Historical Archive includes superseded state statutes for all fifty states. Search the statutes by state, date, description and text. Coverage goes back until 1717.

Immigration Law and Policy in the U.S. (HeinOnline)

This monumental collection is a compilation of the most important historical documents and legislation related to immigration in the United States as well as current hearings, debates and recent developments in immigration law. This first comprehensive database includes BIA Precedent Decisions, legislative histories, law and policy titles, extradition titles, scholarly articles, an extensive bibliography, and other related works.
