The chapter provides an overview of how academic legal research publications are evaluated in Spain. This is still a little researched area and many aspects of such evaluation still remain unclear or underdeveloped. Moreover evaluation mostly focuses on merely formal or external aspects such as some so-called objective indicators and scant attention is paid to whether research actually adds to legal knowledge as such. To make things worse, evaluation criteria are often defined in rather imprecise ways, which makes the outcome of evaluation rather unpredictable. As a result, a researcher in the field of law may find it rather difficult to know what to do exactly so as to obtain a positive evaluation.
