Journal Contribution Guidelines

Contribution guidelines 

Journal authors are mainly drawn from the worldwide community of tax academics in law and economics, policymakers and professionals, as well as IBFD staff. A special effort will be made to enable young authors to publish their work, provided it meets the editorial standards.
 

Editorial standards

Throughout its history, IBFD has endeavoured to achieve its scientific objectives by publishing books and periodicals of high quality in the domain of international tax law and tax treaties. 

It is a requirement that submitted manuscripts have not been published before, and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The journal will follow international editorial conventions which optimize the retrievability of source articles, such as fully descriptive article titles and abstracts, complete bibliographic information for all cited references, and full address information for every author. All articles will be subject to English language editing.

Peer review

IBFD's World Tax Journal is the only IBFD journal whose contributions will always be peer reviewed (except for the publication of proceedings of congresses or symposia). A first screening will be performed by IBFD editorial staff to guarantee the desired quality. After this, the article will be submitted to double-blind peer review. Peer reviewers have been selected from all parts of the world, with a predominance of European and North-American reviewers. Peer review for other journals is optional.
