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 the following year Wiley became its publisher.

The Journal of Supreme Court History accepts manuscript submissions on a continual basis throughout the year. The Journal is published three times a year, in March, July, and November. 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 accepted.
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.
