Journal submissions

The Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies welcomes submission of new research in any area of eighteenth-century studies and strives to present the best current scholarship in eighteenth-century studies. All articles are rigorously and anonymously peer reviewed.

The Journal has published articles relating to all aspects of the global eighteenth century. While British and non-British history, literature, science, art and music may have been the disciplinary boundaries that have characterised the majority of academic research in this period, essays which explore these subject areas from perspectives of gender, sexuality, canonicity and liminality are as welcome as more mainstream articles.

Essays may be up to 10,000-words long, and may contain illustrations or other graphic material. They should be written in English, or in French (if with a substantial abstract in English). Papers must be submitted online at
