Manuscript Submission Services
ExpressO, a law review manuscript submission service, eases the administrative burden of submitting a manuscript to multiple law reviews. Through ExpressO, authors upload manuscripts to the ExpressO website and select the law reviews they would like their manuscripts submitted. ExpressO then distributes the manuscripts electronically or in print to the law reviews that have been selected. The Law School subscribes to ExpressO on behalf of Columbia Law School faculty and students.
If you're a first-time user, please contact us in the Reference Office and we will register you under our institutional account.
ExpressO will not provide refunds to institutional members who inadvertently sign up for a personal account, so we strongly recommend you allow us to mediate setting up your account.
Useful tutorials and FAQ sections can be found on ExpressO's website.
As of July 2016, the Law Library now offers access to Scholastica to current Columbia Law School faculty and students. Just like ExpressO, Scholastica helps users submit a manuscript to multiple law reviews electronically. Unlike ExpressO, Scholastica does not offer institutional pricing for subscriptions, so the Law Library subscribes to packages of submissions on behalf of faculty and students. Because we are charged by each submission we ask that you only use Scholastica to submit to those journals that do not accept submissions through ExpressO. If a journal accepts submissions through ExpressO, you are to use that service for submission. A list of the journals and which services may be used for submission purposes can be provided by the reference desk or found below.
