We accept submissions in English or a Romance language. Submissions cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming or under review, in another venue. Essays will be subject to a double-blind review by two readers. Referees will be members of the advisory board or designated readers with expertise in the field of the submission. Articles will be published open access on a rolling basis within six months from the date of acceptance.


Essays should not exceed 4,000 words in length. There is no word limit for editions, but introductions to those should not exceed the 4,000-word limit. Include a 100- to 150-word abstract and six keywords with your submission. The final version of manuscripts accepted for publication will need to adhere to our formatting guidelines.
