Author Guidelines

The submission file is in a common file format (e.g. *.docx or *.rtf).

The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point Times New Roman font; uses no hyphenation; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end; in general, formatting should be reduced to a minimum.

These guidelines apply only if you wish to submit a call for papers to JLTonline.

If you wish to submit an article for the Journal of Literary Theory, please go to our section Articles and read the Author Guidelines for article submission.
