The Tax Development Journal (TDJ) seeks to publish innovative, original scholarship that makes a significant contribution to taxation. The primary purpose of the TDJ is to provide in-depth articles on contemporary tax issues. The TDJ welcomes articles from professors, practitioners, and students.
We accept submissions on a continuous basis.
The TDJ accepts two types of submissions:
- Articles: Articles are academic writings that discuss and analyze an original tax issue or problem. The TDJ considers article submissions of all lengths.
- Perspectives: Perspectives are writings that are centered on analysis or critique of a recent case, piece of tax legislation, tax journal article, or tax-related book. Perspectives are significantly shorter than articles.
All manuscripts must be submitted in English in Microsoft Word. Text must be typed and double spaced. Footnotes must conform with The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, and authors should be prepared to supply any cited sources upon request. In addition to the manuscript, authors must include an abstract. Authors also must ensure that their submissions include a direct e-mail address and phone number at which they can be contacted throughout the review period.
The TDJ requires electronic submissions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include "Manuscript Submission: TITLE OF ARTICLE" in the subject heading.
The TDJ reserves the right to deny publication to any submissions. Once manuscripts are received, a TDJ editor will review the work and offer acceptance or denial. If the manuscript is accepted for publication, it will be reviewed in detail by two members of our technical review panel in a double blind peer review process. Comments from the panel will be sent to the author for article revision as needed.
Once the author has made changes per review comments, the TDJ's editors reviews and edits the article. Given the TDJ's goal to publish articles that are responsive to current events or recent developments in taxation, the editorial staff makes every effort to complete the editorial process within two months. Authors must be available to be involved fully in this process.
