Call for Papers: ABA Tax NewsQuarterly

ABA Tax NewsQuarterly

The ABA Tax Section’s NewsQuarterly is transitioning to an all-digital format.

One new feature to be introduced in connection with the move to digital is reviews of books and articles on topics of interest to tax practitioners. Reviews serve the purpose of informing readers of recent publications pertaining to tax policy and emerging issues, as well as broader concerns about the interrelationship between tax policies and economic growth. Reviews may be of single books or articles or they may be review essays that discuss and compare two or more books and articles addressing the same topic, similar to such review essays in the New York Review of Books. Reviews will be considered for publication in each quarterly issue, with the first review appearing in the Winter 2016 issue.

Tax Section members from all practice settings are invited to submit book (and/or article) review proposals, which should provide a complete citation for the item(s) to be reviewed and a brief statement about each item’s significance to tax scholarship, practice, or policy. Proposals also should include a brief summary of the author’s background and interest in the item(s).

Authors of accepted proposals will be invited to write a review for a specific issue. The review should be no more than 2000 words in length, though on rare occasions longer submissions will be accepted on consultation with the editor. Reviews should provide a concise introduction to the item’s primary themes and a critical analysis of its significance that considers strengths, weaknesses, and relevance to the field. Citations will be included in the text when necessary.
