A) TDM Journal (ISSN 1875-4120)
The TDM Journal is a comprehensive and innovative information service on the management of international disputes. It has a focus on the rapidly evolving area of investment arbitration, but also publishes in other significant areas of international investment such as oil, gas, energy, infrastructure, mining, utilities and other subjects. It deals both with formal adjudicatory procedures (mainly investment and commercial arbitration), but also mediation/ADR methods, negotiation and managerial ways to manage transnational disputes efficiently.
Open to all to read and to contribute
TDM has become the hub of a global professional and academic network, and therefore we invite all those with an interest in investment/international arbitration and dispute management to contribute articles. In addition to full length articles, we are looking for short comments on recent developments of broad interest. We would like where possible such comments to be backed-up by provision of in-depth notes and articles and primary legal and regulatory materials. Please contact us if you want to participate in this global network: we are ready to publish contributions with name, photo, and brief biographical description - but we will also accept anonymous ones.
