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.
Contributors should note that
material submitted to the journal should represent original
work previously unpublished elsewhere, and must not be submitted
elsewhere for publication while under consideration by Romantic
Textualities Material can be submitted in either print
(2 copies, single sided) or electronic versions, and should
be double spaced; any of the usual electronic formats (e.g.
RTF, Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, HTML, but not PDF) are acceptable. Authors
will be contacted about editorial decisions by Anthony Mandal.
The final, revised version of an accepted manuscript must
adhere to the MHRA style. Authors are advised to consult both
previous issues of the journal for examples and the MHRA style
guide, which is available online @ http://www.mhra.org.uk/Publications/Books/StyleGuide/download.shtml.
All article submissions are subject to the normal process of
anonymous peer review; authors are advised to put include their
names and contact details on separate cover sheets attached
to copies of their manuscripts. Papers of 5–8,000 words
should be submitted in either print (2 copies) or electronic
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 are generally not subject to peer
review, but their suitability for publication will be assessed
by the Editors and Chair of Advisory Editors. Reports can take
a variety of formats, and the final presentation of material
is usually a result of discussions between authors and editors.
