Journal of the Australasian Law Teachers Association
The Journal of the Australasian Law Teachers Association (JALTA) is an electronic double blind peer reviewed journal. Established in 2008, JALTA is published annually and subsequent to the Association’s Annual Conference.
Only papers presented at the ALTA Annual Conference are eligible for submission for publication in JALTA, subject to editorial discretion and the peer review process.
The deadline for Abstracts for JALTA 2016 is 30 June 2016.
Please note: submitting an Abstract to present a paper at the conference is separate to submitting a paper for possible publication in JALTA 2016. If you want your paper to be considered for publication in JALTA 2016, then you need to submit your Abstract by the above deadline.
JALTA publishes articles of between 2,500-5,000 words in length, though articles that are longer than this limit may be considered for publication on a case-by-case basis by the Editor-in-Chief. There is no prescribed number of articles for each issue of JALTA. All submissions should be made by email in double spaced 12 point Times Roman font. An Abstract of approximately 100 words should be submitted on a separate page. Please read this JALTA Information Booklet which provides information about the process, publication timeline, author guidelines and contains the Submission and Copyright form.
Submissions must be made to: firstname.lastname@example.org
All submissions to JALTA are subject to double blind peer review by appropriate specialists in the field.

Copyright in articles published in JALTA remains with the author. The author will be asked to sign a copy of the Copyright Licence Agreement before an article can be published.
