Instructions for Authors
Romantic Textualities: Literature and Print Culture, 1780–1840 is only as substantial as the material it attracts: therefore, we more than welcome any contributions that members of the academic community might wish to make. Articles and reports we would be most interested in publishing include those addressing Romantic literary studies with an especial slant on book history, textual and bibliographical studies, the literary marketplace and the publishing world, and so forth.

Reports: Romantic Textualities also publishes reports on individual/group projects, along with accompanying bibliographic (or similar) material, in order to publicise and disseminate relevant research in the discipline.

Reports can take a variety of formats, and the final presentation of material is usually a result of discussions between authors and editors.
