Commitment to Excellence

Natural Resources Journal (NRJ) is a student-run legal publication. All articles undergo a group review process and, for those articles chosen for publication, an extensive editorial review and revisions by third-year law students at The University of New Mexico School of Law. NRJ is committed to the highest standards of quality and integrity in the publication of articles, case notes, and reviews.

NRJ editors work to identify plagiarism and methodically review articles under consideration for publication for citation manipulation and/or data falsification. The University of New Mexico does not encourage research misconduct or plagiarism, nor knowingly allow this to take place. NRJ will publish corrections, clarifications, retractions, and apologies diligently if and when they are required.
