At least two systemic deficiencies besiege contemporary academic culture.1 Firstly, few journals read by the global scholarly community are published in the ‘Global South’.2 Secondly, the abyss between what is being read and what is being published amplifies the problem of ‘too much academic research being published’.3 The purpose of this editorial is to, firstly, take stock of the Jindal Global Law Review’s (JGLR) fourteen-year effort to address the first of the abovementioned deficiencies and highlight the key conditions for its success. Secondly, the Editorial discusses the recent attempts in JGLR to address the second deficiency—an increase in contributions other than standard research articles. Subsequently, the Editorial introduces the first-ever reviews-only section in JGLR, which attempts to ‘practice what is preached’ by bringing together non-article contributions on the intersection between law, culture and freedom in academia and society.
