International Commentary on Evidence
International Commentary on Evidence (ICE) is a peer-reviewed journal on evidence law and theory. Its purpose is to promote scholarly communication about the law of evidence without regard to political or academic boundaries. ICE is an electronic publication, on the world-wide web. Electronic publication allows the fastest possible exchange of ideas consistent with peer-review. In addition, because ICE is a forum for exchange of ideas, rather than a conventional publication, editorial policy and conditions of publication are formulated to allow authors who have advanced an idea in ICE to develop the idea more fully for publication in a traditional hard-copy form. The word "International" describes the residences of our contributors, but does not limit our subject matter. We plan to publish works concerning evidentiary issues of interest in more than one jurisdiction. Contributions need not, however, refer to the law of more than one jurisdiction. To illustrate the point, a paper on the definition of hearsay, or a law reform proposal, would be of interest in a number of jurisdictions, even if it referred exclusively to the law of one jurisdiction. And a comparative analysis of scientific evidence would certainly be of interest in more than one jurisdiction. On the other hand, a paper on whether a court in a particular jurisdiction correctly construed a prior opinion would not be appropriate for the journal if it only related to the law in that jurisdiction.
