Manuscript Submission

Manuscript Submission

The Revue québécoise de droit international (RQDI) is currently accepting manuscripts in preparation for its upcoming issues. The RQDI aims to offer access to research and practice in international law, from the public or private or comparative field in Quebec, within the francophone community and beyond. A scientific reference tool, the RQDI publishes analyses, notes and commentaries, case law reviews on cases which have influenced the practice of international law in Quebec, as well as book reviews on topics of international law.


The texts proposed to the RQDI are submitted to an anonymous scientific evaluation process by its review committee, which is constituted of peers, practitioners and academics. The editorial board, which is responsible for the steps subsequent to the review, is constituted of students recruited in all law faculties of Quebec: the University of Montreal, McGill University, the University of Quebec in Montreal, the University of Sherbrooke and Laval University.
