Rechtsgeschichte – Legal History is an international, multilingual journal that publishes legal historical contributions. In order to ensure the consistent quality of the publication, all submitted contributions are initially checked by the main editors and the editorial team regarding their general suitability. Contributions that make it to the following evaluation round are assessed by the editors as well as by at least one other researcher. The external reviewer is chosen on the basis of his/her expertise on the given topic as well as any relevant language skills. When it comes to selecting peer reviewers, the editors draw upon both a broad network of international experts and the recommendations of the editorial advisory board. The peer review process is anonymous, and authors will normally receive the decision (acceptance, rejection, need for revision) within two months time.
