  1. Call for papers with the article of only 2000 words and that is also at 1000 bucks. Who will pay for this, and journal does not even have that much impact also. .!
    I think AMU should remove the price tag for publishing!!

  2. I visited this university five years before. It is really a dream place to study but I think the University is completely different after reading this call for paper. Why it is a paid one? Dont the University feels ashamed? How such unethical thing can be done in the University?

  3. What is this? I thought to send my paper for publication in this Journal but I cannot because it is a paid review. The impact factor of paid review is nil, zero. Why Aligarh Muslim University is publishing such a paid journal? Is the Faculty of Law unaware of the UGC norms?

  4. Excellent efforts. We are immensely proud to get an opportunity to send our articles/papers to such a great college. I am surprised to see that such a great institution like AMU is charging such a meagre nominal amount of just rs. 1000 per article/paper. I am registering myself and will want others too,to exploit such great opportunity.

    • Hahaha… Aligarh Muslim University is no doubt a great institution. In past It was Mecca of legal education but what this is actually. Has this things started happening in the AMU also? Monetary fight in Aligarh Muslim University.. I cannot believe this.

  5. call for abstract and that is for a paper. So what about the themes? Why would someone spent his money to get his paper edited by a Final year and Third year students. Edit the notification first.

  6. Sir, for what purpose someone would have to get his name registered before 30 november if he will send his paper? What if I send my paper but don’t pay 1000?

  7. A paid Review in India for the first time and that too in a Central University. Please verify from the University before sending your paper. It appears fake notification.

  8. First abstract in 200 words, that too for a paper. Isn’t it strange? Then, a payment of 1000 or 1500 for a paper in about 2000 words in a paid Review. And why registration deadline, is it a Conference and publication certificate? A complete nonsense it seems. First edit it properly Mr. Chief Editor and Joint Editor. Why anyone will pay such amount for a paid publication. Inaugural issue and that is paid one. Great.

    • Edit it properly? Where is the problem in editing? Maybe you meant ‘verify’? If yes, please note that we encourage law students to do the verification independently. Unfortunately, we do not have the bandwidth (money/resources/people) to do it ourselves. And of course, we believe that someone who’s devoting his/her time for any event/opportunity will do a basic check before starting out.

    • Actually,we are more concerned about the quality rather than quantity. we encourage short articles because it would easy to have peer review of the paper before communicating acceptance.

      • so great Azam. Peer review in a paid journal…hahaha and you are saying you are more concerned about the quality rather than quantity. It is indigestible Azam. I think the good researchers would prefer to donate this amount to the needy than paying it to you in the name of publication. Stop this bullshit Azam.
