3.2 The CLR Blog's editors select works based on selection criteria including conciseness, readability, legal accuracy, and the timeliness and relevance of the subject matter.

3.3 All parties who have made a substantive contribution to the submission should be listed as authors. All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in a section entitled 'Acknowledgements'.
