Author Guidelines

We invite authors to submit manuscripts that fall within the mission and scope of the journal. We accept submissions on a rolling basis, except for our Special Issues: Special Issues follow the deadlines set by the Special Issue editors.

  • All submissions must be in Standard American English.
  • All submissions must be single-spaced and must use Times, font size 12.
  • We do not consider simultaneous submissions.

Specific Editorial Sections

Scholarly Articles: Scholarly Articles can be 4000-9000 words including notes, and should follow the MLA Style for articles related to the Humanities and APA Style for the Social Sciences. Use footnotes instead of endnotes. The review process will usually take about eight weeks.

Book Reviews: Book Reviews should not exceed 1200 words.

Notes: We publish short notes and commentaries (1000-2500 words) about issues related to the mission of this journal.



The MLA style is widely used in the humanities for professional writing and documentation, and it is particularly utilized in English studies, comparative literature studies, cultural studies, and other liberal arts scholarship. The definitive guide for MLA Style is the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing, third edition.


The APA style is predominantly used in the social sciences, and contains more guidelines for handling data, graphs, and charts. The definitive guide for APA Style is The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, fifth edition.
