Masaryk University Journal of Law and Technology uses adapted version of Harvard standard.

This citation style is hybrid of

  1. Harvard technique or rather content of information in citation and
  2. way of placement used by most of Czech universities.

Unlike the Harvard standard, which is based on the in-text style of citations, MUJLT uses system of footnotes, where all the citations are marked in their full form.

In-text citations à la Harvard are in our journal undesirable.

Book reviews

Each book review should contain a title of the book, a name of the author, an e-mail, a full citation, a text (max. 18 000 characters) and a list of references. The goal of a book review is to inform readers about a book within the scope of MUJLT that was published no earlier than 5 years before the expected time of publication of the review. A book review is not subjected to a double-blind peer review process. We recommend that the author consults the book for a review beforehand with the deputy editor-in-chief.
