The interdisciplinary English language journal Art and Law aims to gather outstanding contributions to the fascinating debate at the intersection of art and law. The focus of the journal involves all the aspects (philosophical, juridical, sociological, technological and cultural) characterizing the relationship between art and law. Each issue will be intended as a monographic volume devoted to a specific topic.
As from 2018 the journal is published in 4 issues a year.
Brill Research Perspectives in Comparative Discrimination Law addresses discrimination issues both horizontally (discrimination law as an overarching framework) as well as vertically (specific topics within discrimination law – for example, age, sex, race, and disability – at national, regional, and international levels). Theoretical approaches as well as more pragmatic approaches, such as active measures, are also examined. Each quarterly issue comprises a single short monograph of 50-100 pages presenting state-of-the-art research and analysis of a selected subject.
Brill Research Perspectives in Comparative Discrimination Law’s primary readership includes scholars, educators, students, policy decision makers, practitioners, and non-governmental organizations active in the field of discrimination law. The objective of the journal is to create a global approach to these issues, with the endeavor of publishing contributions by authors from around the world.
Legal issues concerning religion increasingly make the news headlines these days. As a result, the intersection of law and religion is today an established but growing field of scholarship worldwide. Just as the bourgeoning field whose name it shares,
Brill Research Perspectives in Law and Religion seeks to better understand how the phenomena of law and religion interact and to stimulate practical debate on the diverse range of issues involved. The place of religion in society, religious pluralism, the fear of religious extremism, and the terms and limits of religious freedom generate a host of important questions on the interface of law and religion.
In response, law and religion scholars themselves recognise the need for interdisciplinary approaches to this developing field. Secular laws on religion, at the international and national levels, as well as their historical, political, philosophical, sociological, and comparative analysis, all form part of the canon of law and religion. Alongside these are the religious laws and other regulatory entities of religious traditions and organisations, all shaped by their distinct theological postures.
Brill Research Perspectives in Law and Religion encourages the publication of studies of the highest quality, for scholarly analysis and for public debate, associated with the regulation of religion in society and the regulation of the internal life of religious traditions. Its primary readership includes academics, researchers, practitioners, policy makers, educators, and graduate and undergraduate students.
Each issue consists of one uniquely focused article of 50-100 pages. To facilitate the efforts of researchers and educators alike, each journal issue will also be available as a book in both print and electronic format.
Brill Research Perspectives in Law and Religion is published in close cooperation with the Cardiff University Centre for Law and Religion.
Brill Research Perspectives in Religion and the Arts presents extended reference articles on topics within the comprehensive field of world religions and the arts, from the traditional fine arts to newer fields of visual culture and material culture.

Written as a single-author monograph with accompanying critical bibliography, each 50 to 100 page article provides an overview of the specific topic, its history within the larger discipline of religion and the arts, recent innovations in scholarship, critical commentary, and the unique analysis of the author's perspectives.

Brill Research Perspectives in Transnational Crime is the first major research series focusing exclusively on the growing academic and policy area of transnational crime. The aim of the publication is to be interdisciplinary, inviting contributions in the field of transnational criminal law but also contributions by authors embracing socio-legal, criminological, international relations, and political science perspectives. Contributions by authors with a governmental and policy background are also invited.
The publication aims to highlight the emergence of transnational crime as a distinct policy field and area of academic scholarship.
Brill Research Perspectives in Transnational Crime is seen as encompassing a number of key areas of criminality that the global community has been trying to address, including money laundering, organised crime, corruption, terrorism, environmental crime, and trafficking in human beings.
Brill Research Perspectives in Transnational Crime aims to attract a global audience and to promote comparative and transnational approaches to the field. It fills a gap in the academic literature across the disciplines, where there is a growing interest in publications in the field (as witnessed by the emergence of a number of research handbooks on Transnational Crime and Transnational Criminal Law in recent years).
It is a key reference point for academics, scholars, research students, and taught students in the field of transnational crime in disciplines including law, criminology, sociology, political science, and international relations.
Brill Research Perspectives in Transnational Crime is also targeted to legal practitioners, government officials, policy makers, and NGOs.
Brill Research Perspectives in Transnational Crime is the result of a cooperative endeavor with the Criminal Justice Centre of Queen Mary University of London, from whose endorsement and intellectual leadership it benefits immensely.

The aim of
Eurasian Studies is to encourage international academic co-operation and, by covering a wide geographical area stretching from the Balkans to Central Asia and Iran, to break down traditional compartimentalisation of history and foster a more interdisciplinary and interregional approach to historical studies of the area as a whole.
Eurasian Studies is intellectually independent. The journal focuses on the history of Eurasia, covering the period from the rise of Islam to the outbreak of the First World War. It encourages the publication of unedited documents, sources and literary texts, both in facsimile and in transcription. A substantial section is devoted to the review of recent publications.
Asia-Pacific Journal of Ocean Law and Policy explores ocean law and policy issues in the most economically dynamic region in the world: the Asia-Pacific. These ocean spaces are crucial to international trade and are becoming increasingly important in terms of marine resources and services. Hotly contested, the region is subject to enhanced threats such as pollution, conflicting activities, over-exploitation and environmental degradation. Escalating ocean governance challenges coupled with mounting tensions in the region have made studies focusing on this area an especially pertinent topic for scholarly research and consideration in securing and maintaining peace in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
