The Cuadernos de Derecho Internacional was launched earlier this year as a freely accessible online journal. It is published by the Private International Law Section of the University Carlos III of Madrid, and is peer reviewed. Although it will accept articles written in any of the major European languages, so far it is largely the vehicle for Italian, Spanish and Portuguese scholarship. For the linguistically challenged, the editors do provide abstracts in English. The journal, CDT for short, has just released its second issue. As a legal presence in the commendable Open Journals System it is hoped that it will both flourish and encourage more legal research journals down this path.
