The Journal for Juridical Science is accredited by the Department of Higher Education (DHET) and the International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS). It is a national journal that publishes original research contributions in law in Afrikaans and English. Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary contributions, which bridge the gap between legal scholarship and other pertinent academic principles, are also welcomed. However, all contributions submitted to the journal must, in the opinion of the editorial staff, be of relevance to the journal's mainly South African readership.
Manuscripts submitted to the JJS undergo a blind peer review process so as to determine whether they are publishable. The JJS is published bi-annually and is available via Open Access. The JJS is published by the Faculty of Law, University of the Free State. For purposes of referencing the Journal may be abbreviated to JJS.
