Submission Guidelines

The journal seeks submissions from any discipline in Early Modern studies: literature, art and iconography, music, history, gender studies, culture. EIRC asks that any submission (whether electronic or in hard copy) be accompanied by a statement certifying that the article is not being considered for publication elsewhere and will not be so considered elsewhere unless and until the process of this submission results in a rejection.

There are no submission deadlines; manuscripts are submitted year-round from across the U.S. and abroad. Publication decision is given usually within two to three months after submission. Manuscripts with accompanying illustrations are welcome: please submit photocopies of illustrations with the manuscript for the referees' reading, but please be aware that you will be asked to supply black and white photographs (or digital images at the resolution of at least 300 dpi) and letters of permission to reprint from the copyright holders if the article is accepted for publication. EIRC follows the current edition of The MLA Style Manual in matters of documentation style.

Review detailed instructions and further information on EIRC House Style for submitting manuscripts. For a helpful discussion of general guidelines on things to consider when submitting a manuscript for publication, go the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) guidelines page.

When submitting manuscripts, please take care to supply English translations for all non-English quotations therein.

Electronic submissions are easiest; we are able to accept most common word-processing programs (such as WordPerfect, MSWord). Please contact the editor for any other specific information. Please do not include the author's name in the document (include personal information in the cover e-mail only, please). Hard copies of manuscripts (three copies, with author's name on a cover sheet only) can also be sent to the editor.

Note: EIRC does not print advertisements, book reviews, press releases, or calls for papers.
