Aims and Scope

InDret is a journal of legal scholarship. InDret focuses on the analysis of law. It combines the traditional methodologies of legal research with those provided by the social sciences, this way promoting an interdisciplinary approach. The journal is organized in four major sections (Private Law, Criminal Law, Criminology, and Regulatory Law). Since its foundation in 1999, it has become a leading law journal in Spain and Latin America, providing a forum for discussion of fundamental questions in the legal field.

The journal is aimed at researchers, legal professionals and advanced students and is committed to the highest quality standards in legal research. InDret publishes articles written by academics, judges, and practitioners and solicits reviews of important recent books from recognized experts. All articles published under the label «Análisis» are subjected to a rigorous double blind peer review process. InDret is published quarterly. Each issue of the journal appears in the second fortnight of the months of January, April, July, and October. All of the journal’s content is available on an open access basis through InDret’s website.

InDret is run by a group of scholars who sit in the journal’s board of editors and receives institutional support from the Department of Law at Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
