Nordic Journal of Commercial Law was established in 2003 as an Internet-based, semi-annual publication. The NJCL was offered as a public service by the University of Turku Faculty of Law and was sponsored by Hannes Snellman Attorneys at Law Ltd of Finland until 2015. The journal was temporarily discontinued in 2016 by the University of Turku, but shortly after revived by Thomas Neumann and hosted by the University of Aalborg in Denmark.
The purpose of the NJCL is to publish peer-reviewed, high quality articles, commentaries and reports on current topics of commercial law written by notable legal scholars and practitioners. The readers of the NJCL, whether being practitioner of law, in academia, or part of the business community, will find the contents of the NJCL up-to-date on current issues in commercial law, international in scope, and easily accessible on the Internet. While informing the reader about developments in the field of commercial law in Nordic countries, the NJCL publishes submissions from authors around the globe. / Thomas Neumann, firstname.lastname@example.org.
