  1. It is a nice opportunity for students and academicians to write on human rights. All the best for future endevours.

  2. Pay and Publish journals should be banned. I urge Lawctopus not to promote such a culture among law students in India by posting such solicitations. We would only be degrading the quality of scholarship existing domestically. Imagine the amount of plagiarism that would make the rounds online via such publications. Integrity of research scholarship in India should be maintained.

    1. We understand your concern. Our journal is an open access journal, and in order to support open access, sustenance costs is recovered partly from the Editorial Board and partly from the contributors. We assure you that we don’t compromise on the quality of the research. The work of the author is first subjected to plagiarism check and then double blind review.

    2. Your concerns are appreciated, but you should be aware that there is an anonymous peer review process which each of these journals follow and that enhances the quality of research. Research work has never been compromised by them on any part.
