Compliance Elliance Journal (CEJ) is an open access e-journal that publishes engaging authors' works about cutting edge issues in compliance. We include works of various lengths from any interested practitioners, academics or students. In contrast to most open source journals we do not charge a publication fee since we are convinced that only the content and quality of the authors work should be crucial. Our goal is to make compliance accessible by connecting people from around the world who want to share their experiences and innovative ideas with others. Come join the compliance conversation today!
Current Edition: Spring 2019
We are happy to announce the publication of this years spring edition. The issue covers a wide range of topics - from digitized healthcare to pressing questions in commercial criminal law up to current trends in open access. To sum it up: Digitization, Investigations & Compliance in Science will be addressed. Now online.
CEJ is more than a journal. We encourage the participation of our readers because our goal is to start a global conversation about compliance.
