The Ohio State Law Journal will begin accepting submissions for the each upcoming year in late February. The Journal now accepts submissions electronically on ExpressO and in paper form. We look forward to reading your work.
To submit an article in paper form for possible publication in the Ohio State Law Journal, please send one paper copy with footnotes – in Bluebook format – to:
Ohio State Law Journal
Attention: Article Submissions
The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law
55 West 12th Avenue
Columbus, OH 43210
Please include a cover letter with your contact information, including your email address. The Journal primarily uses email to correspond with authors, including to acknowledge receipt of your submission as well as offer publication and regretfully send rejections. You may include a CV with your submission.
The Ohio State Law Journal tends to publish only articles by faculty members and judges. However, we are happy to consider articles by practitioners and students. We only accept scholarly articles of national interest. We do not publish practitioner-oriented articles, articles of only state or local interest, or book reviews. Because we receive more than 2000 submissions each year, we are forced to turn down many fine articles. The best time to send an article is mid-February through early April, or early August through early September.
After submitting your article, if you receive a competing offer for your article and you remain interested in publishing with the Ohio State Law Journal, we would be happy to oblige your expedited review request. Simply provide us with information regarding the competing offer, and we will call you prior to the expiration of that offer if we are able to give you an offer to publish your article. When making an expedited review request, please include your name, your article’s title, the deadline date – preferably at least two weeks – and the name of the journal or review that made you the offer.
If you have accepted an offer to publish elsewhere or if for any other reason you wish to withdraw your article from our consideration, please give us notice soon as possible.
If you have any questions, please call (614) 292-6829 or email the Law Journal directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
