For nearly 60 years, British Tax Review has provided in-depth analysis of tax law; examining changes and providing valuable commentary for practitioners, academics and policy makers. Its editorial board comprises lawyers, accountants and economists.
The Review provides articles which are subject to a rigorous anonymous refereeing process prior to acceptance for publication and which are thought provoking and wide ranging; covering domestic, international and comparative topics across the whole field of tax law. In addition, the Review offers current notes on topical matters and case notes on relevant European Court decisions, reviews on major new taxation publications and regular special issues covering the Finance Acts and other major tax issues.

          Papers to be considered for publication should be sent to the Editors, preferably by email to btr@worc.ox.ac.uk.
          Otherwise by post to Judith Freedman at the above address. All material should be double-spaced in electronic form, either on disk or sent by email in Microsoft Word format. Submission of a paper will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere. Articles will be refereed anonymously by two expert referees and accepted entirely at the discretion of the Editors. The Editors may request contributors to revise their articles to take account of the referees' and Editors' comments and also reserve the right to make any amendments which may be appropriate prior to publication. Contributors who wish to submit a case note are advised to contact Sandra Eden at School of Law, The University of Edinburgh, Old College, South Bridge, Edinburgh, EH8 9YL or by email at sandrae@staffmail.ed.ac.uk before writing to check that the case is not being covered by another contributor. On completion, the note should be sent to Sandra Eden by email or post in the same form as described above for articles.

          Article Submission - Review Procedure and Terms

          If the Editors consider an article to be suitable in scope and subject matter for publication the Review’s standard procedure is to send an anonymised version of the article for review by two referees who are expert in the subject matter discussed in the article.

          Upon receipt of the referees' reviews the Editors then decide whether or not to accept the article for publication. This is entirely a matter for their discretion, although they will take the reports into account. If they should decide to accept, the Editors consider at that stage whether or not any amendment of the article is required prior to publication.

          In view of the stages involved and depending upon the length of the article and any prior commitments of the individual referees, the overall review process can take some time, usually between six and eight weeks from the date of original submission

          The Editors require confirmation that the article has not, either in part or in whole, been published in, or submitted to, any other journal; that it has not, either in part or in whole, been published on the internet or elsewhere and that it is not similar, either in part or in whole, to any other work that has been previously published. If the article builds on previous work that is, of course, acceptable but this must be made clear in the submission letter and it should also be clear from referencing in the article, so that referees can decide whether there is sufficient originality in the new work.

          If the article is accepted by the BTR, the Editors require confirmation that the article will not be published elsewhere otherwise than with the permission of Sweet and Maxwell and the Editors and then not until after the BTR issue in which it is contained is published. If Sweet and Maxwell and the Editors give permission for subsequent publication, which they normally will do, they will require full acknowledgement that the article was first published in the BTR. Sweet and Maxwell and the Editors permit publication of the PDF supplied by the publishers on SSRN, business and personal websites with full attribution.

          It is essential that the Editors receive this confirmation as the Review will only normally:-

          i) consider material that is not being considered concurrently by another publisher and

          ii) publish original work that has not previously been published elsewhere, either in part or in whole, and is not similar, either in part or in whole, to work that has previously been published.

          The Editors do not normally consider student theses or dissertations unless the same have been revised and are presented in a form and length that is appropriate for an article.
