A quarterly peer-reviewed journal
Concurrences is a print and online quarterly peer-reviewed journal dedicated to EU and national competitions laws. Launched in 2004 as the flagship of the Institute of Competition Law the journal provides a forum for both practitioners and academics to shape national and EU competitions policy. In a few years, its articles and research programs have influenced legal theory and practice, occasionally effecting change in public policy or specific cases.
Its influence and expertise has garnered exclusive interviews with figures such as Christine Lagarde, Mario Monti and Nicolas Sarkozy. The International Committee actively promotes Concurrences outside Europe by seeking non-European authors and organizing conferences, workshops and in-house seminars abroad. Each year, the Concurrences Award honors outstanding academic achievement.
As a publication by an independent think tank, Concurrences enjoys unmatched editorial freedom. The Scientific Committee sets up the Editorial Policy and ensures rigorous peer-review in order to achieve the highest academic standards. As impartial reviewers, members of the Scientific Committee Members are charged with carefully evaluating the quality of the submitted manuscripts. The Committee checks manuscripts for accuracy and assess the validity of the research methodology and procedures. If appropriate, the Committee suggests revisions. If the Committee finds an article lacking in scholarly validity and rigor, the Committee rejects it. The Committee sets the order of publication of the selected papers and proposes online or print publication. The Committee sets the date of release. Scientific Committee members receive no remuneration from Concurrences Review. The decisions of its members reflect their own personal opinions. All views expressed are strictly personal, and should not be construed as reflecting the opinion of its Members’ institutions.

Write for Concurrences
Concurrences welcome spontaneous contributions. Except in rare circumstances, the journal accepts only unpublished articles, whatever the form and nature of the contribution. The Editorial Board checks the form of the proposals, and then submits these to the Scientific Committee. Selection of the papers is conditional to a peer review by at least two members of the Committee. Within a month, the Committee assesses whether the draft article can be published and notifies the author. The author then formally agrees not to publish the article elsewhere. The Committee sets the order of publication of the selected articles, proposes on line or/and print publishing and sets the date of publication (see the Editorial Policy).
