Submission of a conference paper for the Annual ATTA conference does not automatically mean that the paper is also submitted for possible publication in JATTA, the refereed journal of ATTA.

A separate call for submissions to JATTA is made following each year's ATTA conference and papers then have to undergo a refereeing process before they are published in JATTA.

JATTA publishes articles of between 8,000 – 12,000 words in length. There is no prescribed number of articles for each issue of JATTA. 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. Papers presented at the ATTA Annual Conference are eligible for submission for publication in JATTA, subject to editorial discretion and to the peer review process. In addition, submissions for publication are welcomed at any time during the year. All submissions or correspondence should be sent to:

Professor Dale Pinto


Journal of the Australasian Tax Teachers Association (JATTA)

Professor of Taxation Law

Head, Department of Taxation

Curtin Law School


All submissions to JATTA are subject to double blind peer review by appropriate specialists in the field. JATTA satisfies the description of a refereed journal in current Australian Department of Education, Science and Training (DEST) categories. Download the Referee report form (pdf).


Copyright in articles published in JATTA remains with the author(s). The author(s) will be asked to sign a copy of the Copyright Licence Agreement before an article can be published. View the Copyright licence agreement (pdf).
