About European Judiciary Review

Europejski Przegląd Sądowy (EPS) [European Judiciary Review] is a legal journal published monthly. It is the only regularly published Polish journal focusing exclusively on European law in the broad sense: European Union law but also the law of the Council of Europe, including, first and foremost, the European Convention on Human Rights.

The author receives 20 points for a publication in European Judiciary Review (according to the Annex to the Communication of the Minister of Education and Science of 9 February 2021, as amended by the Communication of 18 February 2021, regarding the list of academic journals and reviewed materials from international conferences, issued on the basis of Article 267(3) of the Act on Higher Education and Science of 20 July 2018, Polish Journal of Laws [Dziennik Ustaw], consolidated text: 2020, item 85, as amended).

The journal is included in the international European Reference Index for the Humanities and Social Sciences (ERIH+) database.

The Review covers issues of constitutional, procedural, and substantive (mainly economic) EU law. The Editorial Board's intention is to publish on topics relating to new or proposed EU legal acts, as well as important or difficult problems of the current application of the law at EU level or in the Member States.

A significant part of the Review is devoted to the case law of the Court of Justice of the EU, which is analysed in commentaries, longer papers, and case law reviews.
Particularly interesting or controversial questions are discussed by two or more authors in articles or comments presented side by side, which allows the possibility to confront opposing views.

The journal’s special feature is the section titled ‘Case Law Milestones’. Every year the twelve most important and characteristic judgments within a chosen area of EU law are published in subsequent issues of the EPS, together with commentaries. In recent years, the ‘Milestones’ concerned: EU citizenship (2013), public procurement (2014), environmental protection (2015), state aid (2016), copyright (2017), EU funds (2018), and the law of new technologies (2019).
The law of the Council of Europe and the European Convention on Human Rights are discussed in the EPS mainly in the context of questions arising in the case law of the European Court of Human Rights. The journal publishes reviews of ECtHR case law or commentaries on the most important judgments.

Usually, individual issues of the EPS contain papers on a variety of topics. Every few months, however, single-topic issues are published, devoted to particularly new and urgent topics, which deserve to be presented in a comprehensive manner. In recent years, such issues concerned: judicial dialogue (9/2014), access to information in the light of EU law (5/2015), competition law in Poland and the EU (7/2015), the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU (10/2015), Opinion No. 2/13 of the Court of Justice on the accession of the European Union to the European Convention on Human Rights (12/2015), EU food law (2/2016), application of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU by courts in the light of Polish and French experiences (8/2016), cross-border litigation in Europe (10/2016), 25th anniversary of Poland joining the Council of Europe (2/2017), the new EU data protection legislation (5/2017), air protection in the light of EU and Polish law (7/2017), European asylum and immigration law (3/2018), posted workers and freedom to provide services before the recent reform to EU law (6/2018), limits of rights of the individual at the preliminary stage of criminal proceedings in European and Polish law (1/2019).

The journal is addressed to a broad range of readers: legal practitioners, who apply or intend to apply EU law in their professional work; academics dealing with various branches of law, which now cannot be analysed without taking into account various aspects of European law; and law students wishing to deepen their academic knowledge.
Most of the papers published in the EPS are written by academics from Polish universities and by legal practitioners as well as other renowned EU law experts. The Editorial Boardset itself the goal of promoting young authors, while maintaining the required high quality of papers. Alongside Polish authors, papers written by foreign authors are published as well. In recent years, manuscripts have been submitted by EU law experts from Germany, the UK, the Netherlands and Belgium.

The Editorial Board, whose members set the direction for the journal’s development, is composed of professors from Polish universities and the Polish Academy of Sciences, well-known, and widely appreciated not only in Poland, but also internationally. Their knowledge and competences span across all areas of EU law. All members of the editorial board are not only academics publishing their works in Poland and abroad, but also practitioners of EU law on a day-to-day basis. They include a former vice-president of the Constitutional Tribunal (Editor-in-Chief), two judges of the General Court of the European Union, and the First Advocate General of the Court of Justice of the EU.
The members of the Scientific Council are internationally recognized authorities in the field of law. Apart from Polish scholars, the Council comprises professors from the UK, Spain, France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, including, among others, the President, a Judge and a former Advocate General of the Court of Justice of the EU.

Due to a very high quality of publications and the topical subjects discussed, EPS remains the main source of in-depth information on new developments and current events in European law available on the Polish publishing market. In future, the Editorial Boardintends to retain the existing profile of the journal. It has become popular and recognizable as guaranteeing required quality and topicality of publications. The objective for the nearest future is, in particular, to broaden the cooperation with international authors and legal practitioners.
