Boston College Law Library
Law Library Support for Student Authors
Student authors wishing to submit their articles to law reviews outside of Boston College can take advantage of the library's subscription to ExpressO. ExpressO allows authors to easily submit an article to multiple journals. If you create an account on the ExpressO site with your @bc.edu email address, you will be recognized as a BC Law student, and ExpressO will limit your submission options to journals that accept submissions from students. For help using ExpressO, contact Nick Szydlowski (tel. 617-552-4474).
Digital Commons @ Boston College Law School
Students are encouraged to submit articles that have been accepted for publication to Digital Commons @ Boston College Law School, the Law School's institutional repository. Among other benefits, including your article in the repository exposes the full text of the article to Google searches, making it easier for potential employers and others to find your work. To submit your article, or for more information, please contact Nick Szydlowski (tel. 617-552-4474).
In order to reach the widest possible audience, student authors may also wish to submit their work to the Social Science Research Network (SSRN). SSRN is a freely available public database containing both published and unpublished scholarly articles in a variety of disciplines, including legal studies. If your article has been accepted for publication, make sure that you are not violating your publication agreement by posting your article to SSRN. If you have any questions about using SSRN, please contact Nick Szydlowski (tel. 617-552-4474).
