Law Review: Law Library Support for Members of the Boston College Law Review

Perma use by BC law journals staff

As authors incorporate more references to web-based material in their submitted articles, the problem of broken web links damages scholars' ability to track research cited.  This problem, the so-called "link rot" issue, undermines readers' ability to review the cited scholarship in an article.  Perma is one solution to this problem and Boston College Law Library is a Perma partner.
