Family Law Journal Submissions
Material submitted should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for publication in any other journal. The absolute maximum submission length is 3,000 words; one of 2,000 is words is more likely to be accepted.
Contributions can only be accepted provided that all copyright clearances have been obtained by the author.
The preferred method for submitting materials is by email. If posting your submission, material should be supplied electronically, together with a print out. The electronic version and the print out should be exact copies. The document should be saved in Microsoft Word for Windows. Documents prepared on a Macintosh should be converted for PC compatibility.
Author's name and affiliation should appear after the submission title. Full address(es) for receipt of proofs should be given separately.
Proofs and Payment
Proofs are sent to the first named author only. It is that author's responsibility to liaise with any co-author(s) with regard to proof corrections. Upon publication each author will be sent a copy of that issue and a letter detailing payment. Payment will be made to the first named author, in full, shortly after receipt of that letter. Again, it is that author's responsibility to split the cheque between any co-author(s).
A guidance leaflet on house style is available upon request to the publisher, and authors are advised to obtain a copy before submitting material.
Authors should be as accurate as possible when citing references of any kind, and should provide the fullest possible details. Bibliographies and footnotes should be avoided in preference to bracketed references in the text.
Substantive guidance may be obtained by contacting the general editor Elizabeth Walsh.
