How To Submit an Article

The Ohio State Law Journal will be accepting manuscripts beginning early January 2017. Please note that the Journal is no longer accepting manuscripts through ExpressO. The Journal has made the switch to Scholastica.

The Journal strongly prefers that authors submit articles via Scholastica.


The best time to submit an article is late January through early April, and again in early August through early September.

Submissions may also be made in paper form. Please send one paper copy 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. You may also include a CV with your submission.

The Ohio State Law Journal tends to publish only articles by faculty members and judges, but we are happy to consider articles by practitioners. 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 We do not publish practitioner-oriented articles, articles of only state or local interest, or book reviews.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.
