Published in PLOS One: “A General Approach for Predicting the Behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States”

I am proud to announce that our paper, Predicting the Behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States: A General Approach, has been published by PLOS One. Legal scholarship, by and large, is published in student-edited journals. The submission process is typified by the Expresso/Scholastica race to the top. To the extent that lawprofs deal with peer review, it is generally with faculty-run journals in the humanities. PLOS One, in contrast, is a leading peer-reviewed journal focusing on scientific and technical work. Their lead articles, at the moment, are titled “Great apes distinguish true from false beliefs” and “Diversification of the rainfrog Pristimantis ornatissimus in the lowlands and Andean foothills of Ecuador.” The review process was extremely rigorous. Dan and Mike and I are thrilled that after a request for a thorough revision and resubmit, the article was accepted. More importantly, this publication will expose our work to a far wider readership. Enjoy it!
