UCPH Fiscal Relations Law Journal (FIRE Journal)

The FIRE Journal is Open Access and available here.

UCPH Fiscal Relations Law Journal (FIRE Journal) aims to be the ideal publication platform for innovative and entrepreneurial lawyers, scholars, and students writing on a broad array of topics relating to tax law and fiscal matters. The journal welcomes interdisciplinary contributions that combine tax law with another legal field or another scientific discipline. Thus, the journal very much welcomes innovative research that applies new methods or theories or offers new solutions to fiscal problems. Without disregarding traditional concerns of tax law, the journal is interested in analyses of new fiscal concerns and their critical assessment. Submissions are required, however, to address tax law or fiscal matters in some way.

The journal has been established in close collaboration between FIRE – Fiscal Relations Research Group and Research Group on Law Teaching and Learning, both at the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen (UCPH), DJOEF Publishing, and the Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship. .

The journal is published 3-4 times a year. The journal accepts contributions in English, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian. The journal employs double blind peer-review. .
