Oxford University Press Releases New and Updated Law Products
Oxford University Press revamped its law publishing program by launching and relaunching some of its key online resources. The new products are Oxford Competition Law (OCL) and Oxford Scholarly Authorities on International Law (OSAIL), and the updated products include Oxford Reports on International Law (ORIL), the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law (MPEPIL), and Investment Claims (IC).
OCL contains commentaries on case reports and analyses by European Union member states. It is continually updated to ensure timely information, and selected foreign judgments are translated into English.
OSAIL concentrates on public international law such as reference works and treaties from Oxford University Press. Titles in the resource are linked to case reports and articles in Oxford University Press’ database using the Oxford Law Citator.
ORIL has more than 4,000 reports from international, domestic, and ad hoc courts. Each report is full text, with headnotes, analytical commentary, and English translations for key decisions.
MPEPIL features peer-reviewed articles on public international law. This resource is jointly published by the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law and edited by more than 800 scholars and practitioners.
IC is designed for specialist sources such as arbitration awards, laws, and decisions; bilateral investment and multilateral treaties; journal articles; and monographs. These resources are also linked to other publications via the Oxford Law Citator.
Practitioners, students, academics, and librarians can subscribe to Oxford University Press law publications for comprehensive sources. All of the products are available via institutional subscription, though ORIL’s modules can be purchased separately and MPEPIL can be purchased by individuals.
