Article Submission

Electronic Submission Service

Faculty members may submit scholarly works using the Berkeley Electronic Press’ ExpressO service. Using ExpressO eliminates photocopying, assembling, printing and mailing and provides rapid acknowledgment and periodic status updates.

If you are ready to submit an article for publication using ExpressO, the library can provide assistance with targeting journals and uploading papers. For assistance, please contact your library liaison or Pamela Bluh.

ExpressO, a service of Berkeley Electronic Press. bepress™ has arrangements with over 750 law reviews, including all the "top 100" publications. ExpressO allows authors to include a cover letter and a C.V. as part of the submission; accepts documents in Word (or WordPerfect); delivers papers in real time; allows authors to track submissions; has the capability to "expedite" the submission process; requires no abstract or posting of a paper prior to submission; and delivers articles electronically, unless a law review will not accept electronic submissions, in which case the article will be delivered in print.

To submit a paper through ExpressO, follow these steps:

  • go to http://www.law.bepress.com/expresso/.
  • if you do not have an existing account, create one using your @law.umaryland.edu email address.
  • select manuscript file format.
  • create and verify the list of law reviews to which your article should be submitted.
  • upload a cover letter (if desired) and the article, and
  • click finish.
