Submission of papers

Transnational Literature is published twice a year (May and November) and welcomes the submission of

  1. papers on Postcolonial literatures, New Literatures in English, International Writing, and any literatures in English that deal with crosscultural contact and interaction;
  2. unpublished creative and life writing with an emphasis on these themes;
  3. translations of creative and critical works;
  4. reviews of books, including both scholarly and literary works, of relevance to the journal's area of interest. To receive calls for book reviewers from the editor from time to time, please join the CRNLE mailing list. Authors please note: We will usually be happy to include reviews of your publications if they fall within the journal's areas of interest. Please contact the editor in the first instance. The independence of the review process is important, and we cannot accept unsolicited reviews written by associates of the author.

Articles should be written in such a way that they are also accessible to educated, non-specialist readers.

Submissions are accepted throughout the year. The refereeing process for articles is detailed below.

Submission Guidelines

Articles should normally be between 4000 and 6000 words, including footnotes.

Book reviews should be 800 to 1200 words.

Restrictions on length do not apply to creative writing.

Please contact the editor if you wish to discuss variations to these guidelines.

Abstract

Please include an abstract of about 200 words when submitting articles for consideration.

How to Send in a Contribution

All submissions to Transnational Literature are to be sent in electronic form as Microsoft Word documents. Submissions should be emailed as attachments to Transnational Literature. Please include an introductory email message and a meaningful subject line to prevent the email being treated as spam.


Selection process:

Articles submitted to Transnational Literature go through a two-step selection process:

Step 1: Editorial Board review

Submissions to Transnational Literature are first assessed internally by the Editorial Board. To be recommended for Step 2, articles must:

    1. fall within Transnational Literature’s designated research fields;
    2. meet the academic standards for articles published in Transnational Literature
    3. be unpublished and not curently under consideration by any other publisher.

Following the Editorial Board’s assessment, contributors are notified by email of the Editorial Board’s decision.

Step 2: External peer review

Submissions that meet the Editorial Board’s requirements are then sent for anonymous peer review from experts in the field. Following the review, the authors are sent copies of the external referees’ comments and are notified as to whether or not the article is accepted for publication.

Contributors may expect to be notified of the outcome of their submissions to Transnational Literature within three months of receipt of articles by the Editor. We ask authors not to submit their articles elsewhere during this time, and to notify us should they subsequently decide to withdraw their work owing to unavoidable delays on our part.

The Editorial Board reserves the right not to publish any content submitted, and its decision is final. The responsibility for the content of any contribution published by Transnational Literature rests with the author.

The Board also reserves the right to make editorial or stylistic changes where deemed appropriate.
