Illustrations must be submitted as high quality PDF files (a minimum of 300 dpi). For additional information regarding the journal’s house style, please see the American Periodicals Style Sheet. (See also the Council of Editors of Learned Journals guidelines for authors.)

Also, with all submissions, please include a brief biographical statement specifying academic affiliation and scholarly activities in the field of periodical studies.
Book reviews must contain the author’s complete name and full publication information for the book being reviewed (including full title, place of publication, publisher, date of publication, ISBN, and price of clothbound and paperback, where relevant).
