ITechLaw Journal: Submission Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in the ITechLaw Journal.
ITechLaw publishes articles on a variety of technology law topics. Acceptance of articles depends on both the individual merits of the articles in terms of style and content and on the needs of the Journal at the time of review. Articles may be submitted at any time.
We do not pay for articles. Articles appear online on the ITechLaw website and in member email digests. We do not make copyright registration on behalf of the authors, but we do carry a copyright notice in their names on the title pages of their articles. Alternatively, we note original copyright information where an article is reprinted from another copyrighted source.
To keep content timely, we do not permit review of page proofs by authors. Editing is usually limited to grammar, punctuation, and format. Scheduled publication dates may be moved up or back at the discretion of the editorial staff. Because of time constraints and quick turnaround, revisions by the author after an article is accepted are discouraged.
- Articles must be single-spaced, 2-4 pages in length.
- Articles must be in English.
- Use meaningful subtitles to break up text content.
- Write in short sentences and paragraphs.
- Express citations as endnotes instead of including them as part of the text.
- Limit endnotes to source and case citations, not for additional explanation or examples, which should be included in the text or eliminated.
- Font should be Arial, 10-point.
- If desired, nclude a short, one-paragraph biographical sketch of the author on a separate page.
- Send submissions via e-mail in Microsoft Word 6.0 or higher to the Journal Editor In Chief, Kiran Sandford.
