Editors’ Update

The Journal of Australian Taxation is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal publishing articles on all issues relating to taxation.

Under editors John McLaren (Charles Darwin University) and John Passant (Australian National University) the Journal continues its broad scope. It embraces discussions on any aspect of taxation from any jurisdiction. The editors would like to acknowledge the former editorship of Keith Kendall and thank him for his excellent service to the Journal.

The 2017 edition (Volume 19, numbers 1, 2 and 3) will be published by the end of February 2018. The Journal is open source and available online.


The editors are now calling for submissions. There is no deadline. Submissions are received at any time during the year, and once refereed and accepted, articles are published online as part of the volume for that year. Any methodology is acceptable, including but not limited to legal, economic, accounting, critical, empirical and comparative approaches.

Articles between 8,000 and 12,000 words are preferred and it is unlikely that submissions of less than 5,000 words would be accepted. They must be written in accordance with the Australian Guide to Legal Citation, third edition (AGLC3). A Word template is available from the editors.

For more information or to make a submission contact John McLaren at john.mclaren@cdu.edu.au or John Passant at john.passant@anu.edu.au

As an open access journal, all content is freely available without charge to users and their institutions, and articles are accepted on condition that users may read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author.

The journal is available in a printed form if an author requires a printed copy for accreditation purposes.
