Contributions to Taxation in Australia should be relevant to readers whose tax work is mainly in the context of general accounting or law practice.

Preference is given to "how to" articles with a strong practical approach to mainstream tax issues and professional development. Comprehensive technical details and discussion should be excluded where they are not essential to the reader's understanding of the issue. Case citations or other references, if essential, must appear within the text.

Articles are generally between 2,000 and 4,000 words, however, there is flexibility with this. We would suggest that lengthy articles be restructured by authors into two or three self-contained parts over two or three months. If this is not possible, longer articles may be accepted at the discretion of the Editorial Board.

Articles submitted for publication in Taxation in Australia are reviewed as to their suitability, and the writer will be advised by email or phone on acceptance. Articles should be supplied via email as a Word attachment. You should also provide biographical details to feature at the end of the article.
