Utrecht Law Review

Utrecht Law Review
http://www.utrechtlawreview.org/

The Utrecht Law Review aims to offer a scientific platform for cross-border legal research. In the first place, this concerns research in which the boundaries of the classic branches of the law (private law, criminal law, constitutional and administrative law, European and public international law) are crossed and connections are made between these areas of the law, amongst others from a comparative law perspective. In addition, attention will be paid to research in which classic law is brought face to face with not strictly legal disciplines such as economics, political sciences and public administration science. The journal aims to offer room for contributions not only by established researchers, but also and especially wishes to offer to young researchers access to the field of international legal research. An editorial board, composed of both national and foreign renowned researchers strengthens the scientific and international character of the journal. An anonymous assessment of the quality of the submissions is carried out by national and foreign experts in the relevant areas of law and/or topics. It aims to publish articles by both Dutch and foreign authors concerning legal issues in general in its regular issues and, in its annual special issue, concerning legal issues centred on a particular theme. In short: the Utrecht Law Review distinguishes itself by its interdisciplinary character, a thematic approach, the anonymous assessment of contributions, the room it offers to young researchers, its electronic availability and the international framework in which it operates. This will be added to Legal Resources 2006 Internet MiniGuide.

Open Standards and Software for Bibliographies and Cataloging

Open Standards and Software for Bibliographies and Cataloging
http://wwwsearch.sourceforge.net/bib/openbib.html

With the proliferation of robust and powerful open source software, the Internet, and standardization on XML data formats, there are unprecedented opportunities for the collection and management of information. Given the greatly increased access to information in the Internet era, metadata — in essence, information about information — becomes all the more essential. For scholars and researchers, among the most essential metadata is bibliographic. Being able to reliably store, find, use and communicate bibliographic data is a basic need of academic research. And yet the state of bibliographic software is largely stuck in the 1980s. This list provides a quick overview of the landscape of open-source bibliographic software; both where is has been, but more importantly, where it may yet go. Currently, the emphasis is on the needs of individuals and small groups rather than libraries, but given the growing overlap in the interests of these groups, the list is likely to expand to some extent to cover more library software.
