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!
