Author Guidelines

The Tulane Journal of Technology and Intellectual Property accepts submissions from law school graduates. The Journal publishes once a year in the spring.

While our Journal has no minimum or maximum page requirements for submissions, we believe that journal articles can convey their arguments effectively in 40-70 journal pages (between 20,000 and 35,000 words including text and footnotes) and encourage authors to target the lengths of their papers accordingly.

JTIP uses Microsoft Word-based editing software and requests that documents be submitted in either Microsoft Word document format or a compatible document type.

The citations of the Tulane Journal of Technology and Intellectual Property adhere to the rules outlined in The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (20th ed. 2015). In terms of style, the Journal follows the guidelines set forth in The Gregg Reference Manual by William A Sabin (11th ed. 2011) and highly encourages submitting authors to reference these materials for guidance.

When submitting a manuscript, please include a cover letter that provides your address, telephone number, e-mail address, and the title of your manuscript. Also, please include a CV or resume.

In general, the Journal accepts submissions through ExpressO, Scholastica, and through direct email to

Please note that JTIP does not currently publish articles submitted by students enrolled at other law schools.
