Formatting Requirements

Tennessee Journal of Law and Policy has no general rules about the formatting of articles upon initial submission. There are, however, rules governing the formatting of the final submission. See Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for details. Although bepress can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to produce an electronic version of the article as a high-quality PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) file, or a Microsoft Word, WordPerfect or RTF file that can be converted to a PDF file.

It is understood that the current state of technology of Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) is such that there are no, and can be no, guarantees that documents in PDF will work perfectly with all possible hardware and software configurations that readers may have.

Rights for Authors

Beginning 60 days after the article's publication in the journal, we will grant the author permission to reprint the article and prepare derivative works. We have a liberal republication policy and do not charge publications that reprint our articles for educational purposes. In order to ensure the widest possible dissemination of your work, the Tennessee Journal of Law & Policy will grant under most circumstances reproduction of all or any part of your article, provided that such republication clearly acknowledges the original publication in the Tennessee Journal of Law & Policy and properly credits you as the author. In the event that a republication does not do either of the aforementioned requirements, we will decline their request to republish your article.
