Journal of Supreme Court History

[We have the following call for submissions from the Journal of Supreme Court History.]

The Journal of Supreme Court History, a publication of the Supreme Court Historical Society, invites submissions of articles on a continual basis. The Journal welcomes articles on any topic relating to the history of the Supreme Court and its members, although pieces that are purely doctrinal or statistical tend not to be accepted. Submissions are reviewed by members of the Board of Editors, and authors are usually notified within five weeks as to whether their submission has been accepted for publication. Authors are not restricted from submitting to other journals simultaneously.

There is no particular length requirement. The Journal uses endnotes instead of footnotes and discourages the use of prose in endnotes. A variety of note styles is acceptable as long as there is consistency within the article. Because each article features 5 to 10 illustrations, we encourage authors to submit a wish list of illustration ideas, and, if possible, photocopies of any illustrations they specifically require. Illustrations research and permissions are handled by the Journal staff.
For over thirty years the Journal of Supreme Court History has been serving the legal profession, historians, and the public. When launched in 1976 as an annual publication it was titled Yearbook 1976 Supreme Court Historical Society. It changed its name to the Journal of Supreme Court History in 1990 and became a biannual publication in 1996. The Journal became a trimester publication in 1999 and appears in March, July, and November.

Articles may be submitted to any of the following:

Melvin I. Urofksy,

Timothy S. Huebner
Associate Editor

Clare Cushman, Managing Editor
