Oxford University Press launches the
Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law

Your launchpad for global constitutional research

·         Developed for use by constitutional lawyers, academics, and students
·         Provides comprehensive analysis of constitutional law topics in a comparative context
·         Linked to the constitutional texts so users can verify accuracy of commentary
·         Built with accessibility in mind, with browsing by subject matter and simple search functionality

Oxford University Press is delighted to announce the launch of the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law (MPECCoL), a new addition to the Oxford Constitutional Law family.

The Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law offers a global overview of constitutional law in a comparative context via painstakingly researched articles, and was developed with constitutional lawyers, academics, and students in mind. The online resource provides seamless navigation between encyclopedia articles, linking to English versions of the constitutional documents mentioned in articles and hosted on our Oxford Constitutions of the World and US Constitutional Law products, as well as through references from the Oxford Law Citator.

Developed in partnership with the team of editors at the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace and the Rule of Law, the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law has launched with 70 articles from more than 60 different authors, providing analytical coverage of constitutional law topics in a comparative context. This will grow to include over 500 articles once fully established, linked by an intuitive subject and keyword search functionality.

The articles define and cover the underpinnings of state formation and constitutional law, as well as analysing and explaining from a global comparative perspective a number of foundational legal concepts, such as:

·         Human rights
·         Constitutional formation
·         Scope of state protections
·         The defining structures of governmental makeup
·         Types of legal structures and interactions within a constitutional law system; and
·         Legal constitutional concepts that make up constitutional law

The Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law is available on annual subscription to libraries, organizations, and institutions worldwide. Pricing is based on the size and type of institution and the number of users.

If your readers/members are on the cutting edge of this field and would be interested in reading about Oxford’s new online resource, please consider announcing or reviewing it in your blog, newsletter, or journal.
