Guidelines for Contributors

Guidelines for Contributors

 American, British and Canadian Studies seeks quality submissions of work in the entire spectrum of the humanities. The review process is blind: articles are sent out to subject specialists for reviewing anonymously and we leave it up to the reviewers to choose whether or not to reveal themselves to you. Decisions on articles submitted are normally made within two months. You are strongly encouraged to submit exciting and broad-ranging original articles that have not been published elsewhere, nor are currently under review in any other refereed journal. We regret we are unable to accept multiple submissions. You may submit papers that have been presented in conferences only if the papers have been thoroughly revised or extended to engage a theme that fits the ABC Studies profile.

A chief objective of the journal is to minimise the time for paper processing and to expedite printing; therefore, electronic submission of papers in final form is strongly recommended. Please email your contribution to abc.journal@ulbsibiu.ro before the closing date. The first page of the manuscript should carry the title, names of authors, institutional affiliations, a brief but detailed 200-word abstract, and ten key words/concepts.

The normal word-limit for articles is 7500 words including notes. Please include a brief 200-word biography for our Notes on Contributors along with contact information. For detailed instructions for preparing your contribution and a sense of format, topics of interest to us and targeted audience, you may wish to consult the journal’s previous issues and style files at http://abcjournal.ulbsibiu.ro. Only articles styled in compliance with the latest (7th) edition of the MLA Handbook and our Submission Guidelines posted on the journal websites will be considered. Please email us if you have any queries. Questions about content should be directed to karina.schneider@ulbsibiu.ro.

Deadlines for Submissions: American, British and Canadian Studies is published biannually in June and December. The deadlines for submission of contributions are 1 February for the summer edition (expected publication: 15 June) and 1 August for the winter edition (expected publication: 15 December).
