Editors Update

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

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

The 2016 edition will be published by the end of February 2017. From 2017 the Journal will be open source and available online.


The editors are now calling for submissions. There is no deadline. Submissions will be received at any time during the year and once refereed and accepted the relevant article will be 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 latest edition of the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (a new edition will be available sometime in 2017)

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
