How to publish in this journal


The Revista de Derecho Privado is a semi-annual publication that compiles the results of the investigative efforts, researches and articles written by professors and jurists from national and foreign universities, that are of interest to the legal community. The journal touches on subjects of private law, with special consideration to its development within the traditional roman domain, in order to make evident the contrasts and similarities between the Latin American and European legal systems, without overlooking, of course, the required confrontation, which today is a must, with the so-called the Anglo-American law. The purpose of the journal is to encourage debates within the legal science and promote dialog among legal sources; due to its determination to address issues from a comparative law perspective, the journal has international applications also with the objective to promote debates among scholars of diverse fields. The journal, available to the scientific and academic community (teachers, researchers and students) and members of the legal practice (lawyers, judges, public servants, and legal professions in general), is addressed to all legal professionals who, either from the point of view of theory or practice, seek to deepen their knowledge of Private Law, starting from its romanist foundations and arriving to the identification of an own Latin American system which can be compared with the European system and even with the common law systems.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
