Welcome to the Civil Procedure Review!
Over the last decades, comparative law has established itself on the agenda of those who teach, practice and work with Civil Procedure or Procedural Law in general. At the present time of quick developments in technology, of a globalized economy, and of ever-increasing reliance on international law and cooperation mechanisms, the study of the legal systems all around the world has gained relevance because it helps us to better understand our own system and at the same time provides solutions for legal issues which become, day after day, more common and global.
The Civil Procedure Review seeks to promote the study and discussion of Civil Procedure issues from a comparative perspective, creating a large database in the field of Procedural Law. And by doing so we intend to become a center where ideas merge and from where they can be diffusely announced and disseminated.
The Civil Procedure Review publishes articles, books, book reviews, monographic works and other types of academic material about Procedural Law, produced by Professors, Researchers and Students from Universities and Institutes all around the world.
The choice for the electronic means for publishing, so important in the modern world, seeks to broader the dissemination of ideas and to make the access to the Review’s content more wide and democratic of the academic community. By making full advantage of the benefits of an on-line publication, we want to provide a fast, cheap and accessible means for publishing serious academic writing. This is specially relevant for the countries in which libraries struggle to continue with the existing subscriptions of written journals. The on-line publication thus allows us to reach audiences that otherwise would not have access to this material.
The Civil Procedure Review provides also a Discussion Forum and Articles Comments, that represent an interactive space to facilitate academic debates. The Discussion Forum foments the interchange of ideas about issues suggested by the Editorial Board. With the use of Articles Comments the Review provides a public platform for each published article and readers can comment and engage into an academic debate with the author and other readers, regardless of where they actually are in the world. This gives authors the opportunity to receive feedback.
