                             EDITORIAL


In this first issue of 2015, the Executive Board looks back at another successful year
of the Netherlands Quarterly of Human Rights. In 2014 more articles than ever were
submitted for publication. In total, we received over 150 manuscripts, of which we
published 12 articles in the Quarterly's four issues in 2014. As such, the Quarterly
remains a highly competitive journal with a publication rate of approximately eight
per cent, which enables us to select only the best articles. The influx of articles has
led us to further streamline the review process, although we remain cognizant that
authors always prefer a decision on their article yesterday rather than tomorrow.
Importantly, we would like to extend our gratitude to the work of the wider Editorial
Board and other reviewers, who have taken time and care to assess articles submitted
to them. Without their work, and the confidence that both prospective authors and
readers put in our publication, the Quarterly would not stand where it does today.

The Executive Board is also pleased to note that the Netherlands Institute of Human
Rights (SIM) human   rights database is now being updated and hosted online by
the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human   Rights available
at: http://juris.ohchr.org/. The SIM database was developed over many years by the
documentation  team at Utrecht University including Saskia Bal, Maaike Hogenkamp
and the human  rights specialist Ineke Boerefijn. The NQHR Board is also grateful
to Maaike for supporting the Quarterly and producing the New Documentation
section published in each edition, outlining important new publications in the field
of human  rights. This section will now be prepared in 2015 by the Utrecht University
Library.

The  new  UN  database provides easy  access to a single source containing the
jurisprudence of the UN treaty bodies that receive and consider individual complaints,
including: the Human   Rights Committee;  the Committee   against Torture; the
Committee  on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women; the Committee
on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination; the Committee on the Rights of Persons
with  Disabilities; the Committee on Enforced  Disappearances; the Committee
on Economic,  Social and Cultural Rights; and the Committee on the Rights of the
Child. SIM is pleased to see this resource continue to provide crucial human rights
jurisprudence to practitioners, scholars and individuals around the world.
