Transition to Rolling Submissions

The Editorial Team at Ledger is pleased to announce the beginning of rolling submissions to the journal. Authors may submit manuscripts of up to four thousand words detailing original research and reviews on any relevant topic, including but not limited to the technical, social, economic, and philosophical developments and implications of Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, public and decentralized ledgers, distributed consensus, and more. Interested authors should consult the submissions and policies sections on the Ledger website for more details on our focus and scope, submission methods, transparent peer-review process, author guidelines, and open-access policy. Submissions up to 15 January 2016 may be considered for the inaugural edition, contingent upon a timely review process and other editorial decisions. All submissions will be considered for subsequent issues on an ongoing basis. We welcome inquiries by e-mail at ledger@pitt.eduLedger is the first peer-reviewed journal devoted to the inherently interdisciplinary subject of cryptocurrencies, and is proud to be supported by its distinguished editorial board. It is published quarterly by the University Library System, University of Pittsburgh as an open-access journal and does not charge author fees. Ledger timestamps all published articles in the Bitcoin blockchain, and encourages authors to digitally sign their manuscripts.
