Guidelines for the Submission of Manuscripts

Submissions of 5,000–7,500 words should be uploaded through the Marvels & Tales Digital Commons website. Submissions should be accompanied by a separate file that includes the title of the manuscript and a 100-word abstract.

Only original articles that are not simultaneously under consideration by another journal will be considered. Submissions should not have been previously published in any language unless being submitted for consideration as historically important scholarship intended for the section Scholarship in Translation. Unrevised student essays or theses cannot be considered. Send queries to the editor at cbacchi@hawaii.edu or a.duggan@wayne.edu.

Style: Submissions must be prepared according to the current edition of the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing and must use parenthetical documentation with a list of works cited. They must be double-spaced, including all quotations, endnotes, and the list of works cited. Submissions should be prepared for anonymous review (i.e., without any reference to the author's identity).

Requirements upon Acceptance: Authors whose work is ultimately accepted for publication must submit the following three items prepared on a common word-processing program such as MS Word or as an RTF file:

  1. the final manuscript (5,000–7,500 words);
  2. a 100-word abstract; and
  3. a 50-word biographical note.

Permissions for Copyrighted Materials: For contributions that include any copyrighted materials, the author must secure written permission (specifying "non-exclusive world rights and electronic rights") to reproduce them. The author must submit these written permissions with their final manuscript. Permission fees are the responsibility of the author.
