Our Submissions

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—up to 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, graphs, 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).
