Human Rights Quarterly Receives High Rankings by Google and 538 Muse Journals

The Human Rights Quarterly, recognized as a leading academic journal in the human rights field, has just been ranked as the number two international law journal by Google and number five out of 538 Muse journals in terms of usage.

“This is great news about the journal,” said Bert Lockwood, Distinguished Service Professor of Law and director, Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights. He is also editor-in-chief of the journal, which is edited at the College of Law. “All of us who work on the Quarterly are pleased by these distinctions. Indeed, it is recognition of the great effort and care of the student editors and the quality work of the many writers over the years.”

The Human Rights Quarterly, which is over 30 years old, is a multidisciplinary journal covering the range of human rights matters encompassed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Typical articles cover many of the legal aspects of human rights issues, as well as the “non law” aspects.  In its more than three decades and over a thousand articles and book reviews, the Quarterly is highly regarded in the human rights field. Its audiences and authors are represented on every part of the globe.

The Human Rights Quarterly is published by The Johns Hopkins University Press, the oldest university press in the country.
