PURPOSE AND SCOPE
Jurimetrics: The Journal of Law, Science, and Technology is an international journal concerned with issues in all areas of law, science, and technology, including:
- physical, life, and the empirical, social, and behavioral sciences;
- engineering, aerospace, communications, and computers;
- logic, mathematics, statistics, and quantitative methods;
- use of science and technology in law practice, litigation, adjudication, legislation, and court and agency administration;
- legal regulation and policy implications of science and technology.
Published quarterly, Jurimetrics is the oldest and most widely circulated peer-reviewed journal in its field, and proud to be the official journal of the American Bar Association Section of Science & Technology Law. Currently, the journal is housed at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law–Arizona State University (ASU Law) and cosponsored by ASU Law’s Center for Law, Science & Innovation (LSI). The Jurimetrics executive board and editorial staff are advised by an LSI Center faculty fellow. The journal provides scholars and researchers with a wealth of thoughtful articles and is frequently cited in opinions of state and federal courts, legal treatises, textbooks, and scholarly articles in a wide range of other journals. These distinctions support Jurimetrics’ claim of being the premier peer-reviewed journal of law, science, and technology.
