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

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 We do not publish practitioner-oriented articles, articles of only state or local interest, or book reviews.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.


Submissions: Furthermore, the Ohio State Law Journal Online Supplement

Furthermore is an online-only publication designed to promote dialogue regarding current legal topics through publication of shorter, less-footnoted pieces than in our print journal. We encourage the following types of submissions (from professors, as well as practitioners and students):

  • Stand-alone articles, shorter and more-focused than traditional submissions;
  • Responses to already-published articles, OSLJ as well as others; and
  • Updates or recent developments to already-published articles.

To submit a manuscript for Furthermore, please email our Chief Online Editor, Lindsey Woods, at woods.749@osu.edu with the following information:

  • A cover letter, including the manuscript’s word count and your contact information;
  • A resume or curriculum vitae; and
  • A copy of the manuscript in Microsoft Word format

The current issue of Furthermore can be found here.
