We are happy to inform you that Scopus has added the Baltic Yearbook of International Law articles to its database.
It will give a broader audience to the existing and future authors published in the Yearbook, as their articles are already and will be searchable in Scopus, one of the biggest bibliographic and citation databases of multidisciplinary scientific publications, run by Elsevier and containing entries for more than 21,000 journals, 86,000 e-books and 6.8 million conference proceedings, as well as 27 million patents.
The Baltic Yearbook joined the family of legal publications in 2001 as an annual publication containing contributions on topical issues in international law and related fields that are relevant to Baltic affairs and beyond and serving as an essential source of information not available elsewhere on the practices of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the field of international law. The Yearbook is published in cooperation between the Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL) and Brill/Nijhoff Publishers under the auspices of the Baltic editorial board.
Despite clear Baltic ownership, the Yearbook aims to contribute to the development of thought, standard-setting and relevant practices worldwide. The topical coverage has included the questions surrounding the claims of the Baltic States to their State continuity in international law, related issues of State responsibility, various challenges in international human rights law with a focus on bioethics and human rights, and the enlargement of the European Union.
You are welcome to join the opening of the 21st volume of the Yearbook and a discussion on 16 February from 10.00 – 12.00 online. The volume covers the legal analysis of Russia’s ongoing war on Ukraine, drawing parallels with the occupation of the Baltic states by the USSR in 1940.
