As an open access journal we do not charge an article processing charge (APC). There are no submission and publication fees.

The journal is published twice a year, focusing on scientific submissions of high quality. Therefore, it is expected from the authors, editors, reviewers and publishers to obey the standards of ethical behaviour.

The journal was founded with a mission to develop a reliable platform and provide access to and invite scientific contributions and support scientific initiatives in the field of law and management.  The main aim is to publish articles that will be interesting to both theoretically and practically oriented readers. Academicians and research scholars are invited to submit their novel contributions in the form of original manuscript, which undergo quality check before being approved for publication. As a reviewed scientific journal it has been published since 2018 by the Labour Law Association in Slovakia.

Despite the fact that the journal has a scientific character, it is significantly addressing labour law issues with a focus on the social situation and its practical application on the labour market as well as practical implementation of individual and collective labour relations.

The main objective is to initiate the researchers in Central Europe to submit their research results as well as improve the international cooperation. In addition to primary orientation and the focus on Central European states, each issue of the journal is trying to introduce articles from other European and non-European countries in order to enhance the professional discussion in Central Europe with new ideas and approaches to solve problems in the researched fields. The benefit of such an approach should be to find solutions that have already proved successful in other countries, and transfer them, if possible, to the Central European discourse with all their positive and negative aspects.
