Australian Journal of Corporate Law
The Australian Journal of Corporate Law provides a forum for interdisciplinary debate and discussion of major contemporary policy and research issues affecting corporate law.
Contributions are invited from academics, researchers and practitioners. High consideration will be given to articles with a strong policy, theoretical or reform focus. Although most articles will have an Australian orientation, articles adopting a comparative perspective or which cast light on the global dimensions of corporate law and regulation are also encouraged. This journal publishes three issues annually.
Authors are expected to follow the style guidelines of the Australian Guide to Legal Citation.
While the Journal does not adhere to a strict word limit, articles would normally be in the range of 8-10,000 words, though longer or shorter pieces may be accepted where appropriate for the topic. Submissions should contain footnotes not endnotes.
An abstract of 100-150 words must be included.
Graphics, tables, graphs and diagrams should be kept to a minimum. They should be in greyscale; no more than 10cm in width; of high resolution; font is to be Times New Roman, no more than 10pt; must not contain footnotes. Graphics not complying with these requirements will not be published.
