What is the International Journal of Government Auditing?

The International Journal of Government Auditing (the Journal) is published quarterly (January, April, July, October) in Arabic, English, French, German, and Spanish. As the official publication of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI), the Journal supports cooperation, collaboration, and continuous improvement among supreme audit institutions (SAI) and the broader accountability community.

The Journal has been available online since 1999. In 2007, the Journal’s site was redesigned and expanded to take full advantage of current technology and to offer additional material not available in the print version.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office publishes the Journal on behalf of INTOSAI through the auspices of the International Journal of Government Auditing, Inc. Opinions and beliefs expressed are those of the editors or individual contributors and do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of INTOSAI.

Submission Guidelines

The International Journal of Government Auditing accepts submissions for each of its quarterly issues, published in January, April, July, and October.

The Journal is looking for the following types of content:

News in Brief

News about SAIs

Please send information about new activities relevant to your audit office. Examples include the appointment or retirement of an auditor general, publication of an annual or special report, the implementation of new or revised audit legislation or mandates, an anniversary special to your organization, or a "special project" conducted within your office or as part of a collaborative effort with other SAIs. Please include your SAI's e-mail address and website.

Contributions should be approximately 2-4 paragraphs, or up to 500 words. If you send a photograph, please ensure that its resolution is at least 300 dpi and send it electronically as a separate .jpg file (please do not embed photos into Word documents).

Inside INTOSAI

News about INTOSAI's working groups, task forces, committees and subcommittees, and regional working groups

Please send information about new activities of your group that would be of interest to the broader INTOSAI community. Examples include ongoing group work, the publication of special documents, training initiatives, reports on regional working group congresses, and collaborative efforts with other INTOSAI groups or external organizations. Please include your group's e-mail address and website.

Contributions should be approximately 2-4 paragraphs, or up to 500 words. (Reports on regional working group congresses can be longer—500-1,000 words.)

If you send a photograph, chart, graph, or other image, please ensure that its resolution is at least 300 dpi and send it electronically as a separate .jpg file (please do not embed photos into Word documents).

INTOSAI Calendar

Upcoming events of INTOSAI's working groups, task forces, committees and subcommittees, and regional working groups

Please submit the event's name, sponsoring group, date, and location.

Technical Articles

Technical articles are also being solicited at this time. However, because we generally have a number of technical articles under review for publication, we cannot guarantee when articles submitted and/or accepted will be published. In most cases, they will be considered for future issues, not the current issue.

As always, given the Journal's use as a teaching tool, the articles most likely to be accepted are those that deal with pragmatic aspects of public sector auditing. These include case studies, ideas on new audit methodologies, or information on initiatives or programs related to capacity building and knowledge sharing. Articles that deal primarily with theory would not be appropriate.

Articles should be no more than 1,500 words in length; photographs, charts, grpahs, and other images should be at least 300 dpi and should be sent as separate .jpg files (please do not embed these in Word files).

All submissions should be sent to intosaijournal@gao.gov.
