The Journal of Supreme Court History accepts manuscript submissions on a continual basis throughout the year.  Submissions are reviewed by members of the Board of Editors, and authors generally receive notification within six weeks as to whether an article has been accepted for publication.  Authors are not restricted from submitting to other journals simultaneously. 

The Journal welcomes submissions from seasoned scholars as well as from graduate and law students.  The Journal will consider papers on any topic relating to the history of the U.S. Supreme Court and its members, although articles that are purely doctrinal, jargon-laden, or statistical tend not to be favored.  In general, articles that focus on recent cases or sitting justices of the Court are not considered.  There is neither a maximum nor a minimum length requirement, but most submissions are between 8,000 and 12,000 words.

A variety of note styles are acceptable, as long as there is consistency within the article.  A style sheet will be provided on request.  The Journal discourages the use of extensive prose in the endnotes and requests that authors curb excessive citations.  Authors are encouraged to submit a wish list of 5-7 potential illustrations; the Executive Editor handles licensing permissions and has final say over which images are published.

Please submit articles to:
Clare CushmanExecutive Editor, ccushman@supremecourthistory.org

The Journal generally reviews four or more books per issue, typically in the form of review essays that include multiple titles, although the Journal occasionally features reviews of single books as well.  If you would like to suggest a book for review, please contact Clare Cushman at ccushman@supremecourthistory.org.
