Background: Journal of Supreme Court History is an interdisciplinary journal funded by the Supreme Court Historical Society that publishes articles on the history of the Supreme Court by law professors, historians, political scientists, curators, lawyers, judges, librarians and amateur historians. When launched in 1976 as an annual publication, it was titled Yearbook 1976 Supreme Court Historical Society.

AUTHOR GUIDELINES


Submissions

The Journal of Supreme Court History publishes three times a year, in March, July, and November. It accepts manuscript submissions on a continual basis throughout the year. Submissions are reviewed by members of the Board of Editors and authors generally are notified within six weeks as to whether an article has been accepted for publication. Authors are not restricted from submitting to other journals simultaneously. The Journal will consider papers on any topic relating to the history of the Supreme Court and its members, although articles that are purely doctrinal or statistical tend not to be favored.


Manuscripts

There is no particular length requirement, although articles that are roughly 30 double spaced pages are preferred. The Journal uses endnotes instead of footnotes and discourages the use of prose in the endnotes. A variety of note styles are acceptable, as long as there is consistency within the article. A style sheet can be provided on request. Because each article features five to ten 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.
