JURISMAT, ISMAT’s Legal Journal, has already known two distinct editions, since 2012, and is now in its third edition.

JURISMAT gathered, especially in its first edition, between 2012 and 2015 (eight issues published in three years), the publication of scientific articles authored by the greatest experts from all national law faculties, Portuguese and many foreigners (from Spain, Brazil, Morocco, Italy and Mexico). JURISMAT has also earned accreditation in an international catalogue (Latindex). It has fulfilled fifty of the fifty-five required criteria.

JURISMAT publishes, first and foremost, articles from ISMAT’s Law faculty. This is a requirement of the renewed course management and one of the fundamental missions of the Journal. In its first edition, it included a section dedicated to the publication of articles by law students, especially scrutinised by the Scientific Committee of the Journal, according to its own regulations. This editorial option was reedited in the third edition.

The Scientific Committee of the Journal was recently renewed. It brings together renowned specialists from Portuguese higher education faculties and courts and from leading foreign universities. They will ensure the blind peer-review, which will select the articles to be published.

All articles are available at the Lusófona Scientific Repository.
