2016 will be a year of significant changes for Direito GV Law Review. Since it was launched
in 2005, the journal has always been committed to the broad and free distribution of its publications. In
order to achieve that it adopted two strategies: electronic publishing, on FG V DIREITO SPS website and
later on SciELO's database, and the free distribution of printed copies to Brazilian and foreign libraries.

However, the situation regarding scientific journals has changed a lot since 2005 and Direito GV
Law Review has been following these changes closely. In Brazil, SciELO has been at the forefront
of these trends. In addition to providing an important vehicle for disseminating journals in digital
media, SciELO has set goals regarding management and internationalization for Brazilian journals.
It has also urged journals to develop strategies to increase the impact of Brazilian research.

The changes that will be implemented this year relate to those goals. From this issue on, Direito GV
Law Review will be fully digital (ISSN 231 7-61 72). In recent years the interest in printed copies
has declined and there has been a clear increase in article downloads. Consequently, the journal's
graphic layout has been redesigned for digital media.

The journal will also have its periodicity altered from biannual to quarterly. The goal is to reduce the
delay between the approval of an article and its publication, as well as to increase the total number
of articles published each year.

Another important development is the adoption, in the first half 2016, of an online system for the
submission of articles and editorial management. The chosen system is used by some of the most impor-
tant international journals and has already been adopted by some Brazilian journals indexed by SciE-
LO. Every step of the process from the submission of articles though reviews, ending with afinal deci-
sion of approval or rejection   will be completed through the system. The objective is to make the
assessment process more timely and transparent and to facilitate the relationship between the journal's
editorship and reviewers.

This issue contains eight original articles, including two foreign, and a review. In Spaces and interfaces
between regulation and competition: the approach of CADEthe authors evaluate the more or less cau-
tious positioning and performance of CADE regarding the competitive spaces in regulated industries. In
State, police and public safety in Brazilthe goal is to link the theoretical and academic debate with
the public security debate in Brazil, in the light of a new and unexpected variable: the demonstrations
that took to the streets of the country's major cities in 2013. Among the foreign articles, the first, The
binding force of human law and strictly penal laws in Domingo de Soto and Francisco Sucirezuses the
work of Domingo de Soto and Francisco Suairez to revisit a central question for the philosophy of law
