International Journal of Digital Law

The International Journal of Digital Law consists of an open-access electronic scientific journal published every four months by NUPED - Center for Research in Public Policies and Human Development of the Postgraduate Law Program at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Paraná in partnership with Editora Fórum. 

The Editorial Board is composed of renowned professors linked to higher education institutions in Brazil, Argentina, Australia, Colombia, Spain, Egypt, France, Holland and India. The editorial line follows the axis of NUPED's research activities, a group affiliated to REDAS - Research Network in Welfare State Administrative Law. Its focus is the critical study of the legal and political institutions typical of the rule of law, notably those aimed at innovation and human development through the digital revolution. 

The editorial line follows the area to which NUPED - PPGD/PUCPR belongs, entitled “Economic Law and Development”. In turn, the area brings together two important research strands: 1. State, Economy and Development and 2. Social Rights, Globalization and Development. The journal will highlight this theoretical framework. However, transversely to the theme of economics, development, globalization and social rights, the keywords that best define the scope of the journal involve dealing with topics such as access to information, Big data, Blockchain, Smart Cities, Smart contracts, Crowdsourcing, Cybercrimes, Digital democracy, Right to privacy, Fundamental rights, E-business, Digital economy, Digital education, Administrative efficiency, E-Government, Ethics, Fake News, Gig economy, Digital inclusion, Infrastructure, Innovation, Artificial intelligence, Public interest, Internet, Internet of things, Jurimetrics, Lawfare, New technologies, Digital profiling, Multimedia research, Electronic administrative process, Data protection, Administrative regulation, Economic regulation, Risk, Public services, Information systems, Information society, Government transparency, and Telecommunications. 

The publication of articles is submitted to the double-blind peer-review procedure. The works are sent without identification of authorship to two "ad hoc" referees exogenous to PUCPR. The referees are, therefore, always researchers linked to renowned national and foreign higher education institutions.
