The Law, Technology and Humans journal has been accepted for indexation by Scopus after only two years of publication.
Scopus is the world’s largest abstract and citation indexing database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings. For inclusion, publications must adhere to specific publishing requirements that include a demonstrated academic contribution to the field, quality of content, and diversity in the geographical location of editors and authors.
Editor Kieran Tranter notes that “this is first step towards getting ranked and in itself is no small achievement for a new journal. It means the quality of our papers, the metrics of their acceptance and use by the global intellectual community and our professionalism as a publishing outlet, after only five issues, was sufficient to be listed.”
All five of QUT’s open access academic journals are now indexed by Scopus – a result indicative of the dedicated work of the journal editorial teams and the ongoing collective support from the QUT Library – particularly the Office for Scholarly Communication.
Law, Technology and Humans (ISSN 2652-4074) is an innovative open access, double blind reviewed journal dedicated to research and scholarship on the human and humanity of law and technology. Sponsored by the Queensland University of Technology, Australia, Law, Technology and Humans is advised by a leading International Editorial Board. In 2021 it was awarded the DOAJ Seal reflecting best practices in open access publishing.
