Rooted in the innovative FRIA (Romanian Foundation for Business Intelligence) actions, LSO explores the intersection of law and sociology, economics, cultural studies, literature, political science, criminology, history, human rights, gender studies and political economy.

Our Journal aims to become a prestigious forum for interdisciplinary debate, both at theoretical and practical research addressing relevant issues at national, regional and international level.

I. The articles and case notes are designed to have the widest appeal to those interested in the law – whether as practitioners, judges or managers and adminstrators – and to provide an opportunity for them to keep abreast of new ideas, newly enacted legislation and the proposals for legal reform.

II. II. LSO seeks to promote and publish original research on law and normative orders understood as social phenomena. LSO strives to enhance the understanding of the complex connections between law, culture, social structure and society by focusing on social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules, institutions, processes, and behaviors.
LSO explores the relationship between human behavior and the law, the legal system, and the legal process. Coverage spans criminal justice, law, psychology, sociology, psychiatry, political science, education, communication, and other areas.

III. LSO offers an outlet for high-quality empirical and theoretical scholarly work at the intersection of law, economics and accounting. This includes research examining how law and regulation affect the structure, governance, performance, and function of organisations (firms, institutions, networks etc.) and markets that comprise the financial system. This interdisciplinary research area is referred to as “law and organisations” although relevant work comes from scholars whose principal home may be in accounting, economics or political science.

Journals are indexed BDI. For more information, please visit the journal websites.

II. Conference Proceedings

The proceedings will be available on the conference website and will be sent for indexation in THOMSON REUTERS database (in Conference Proceedings Citation Index). Manuscripts should be written only in English.

Pay attention if you choose the ISI Proceedings for indexing your article within Conference Proceedings Citation Index from Thompson Reuters academic database:

  1. This indexing is a long process (sometimes about 2 years) and the deadline cannot be influenced by our Editorial Department.
  2. The articles are going through a double process of selection. Firstly, The Scientific Council of the Conference will approve and evaluate it and later, by the Council that applies the rigors of accepting the work within the academic database Thomson Reuters.
  3. If the second evaluation rejects the articles, evaluation that can take place after a year, the authors can choose only in that moment to redirect for publication their work elsewere .
  4. In order to be sent to the academic database Thomson Reuters for indexing in Conference Proceedings Citation Index, it is mandatory to present the article within the works of the conference (one or more authors attend the conference for oral presentation of their article).
  5. We remind you that the articles published in the collective volumes of the Conference cannot replace the articles published in the scientific journals indexed in international data bases recognized internationally (the case of the journals SEA, NIS, CMJ and MI).

III. Academic platform
