Citation Style and Bibliography:

ILREV refers to the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th Edition (2017) for its citation style and bibliography. All submitted articles must include a bibliography of all cited references. The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th Edition (2017) can be accessed through the following website link


Since the Chicago Manual of Style does not regulate the citation style for legal documents of a specific country and legal system, any citation of legal documents—both of i.e. Indonesian legal documents, foreign legal documents, as well as international legal documents—may refer to other internationally accepted citation style manual such as The Bluebook, OSCOLA, or New Hart’s Rules. Author(s) are also given the discretion to develop their own legal citation style apart from those accepted internationally. Once the author(s) have decided to subscribe to a particular citation style, all citation and references to any legal documents throughout the article draft should consistently refer to that particular citation style.

While a large degree of discretion is given to author(s) in developing their own legal citation style, ILREV does not accept any citation in the form of body-note and/or end-note.
