ELH welcomes sophisticated, groundbreaking essays on all literatures in English and on cultural forms and contexts related to those literatures. Continuing a tradition that stretches back to 1934, the journal's editors balance historical, critical, and theoretical concerns in seeking to publish the very best work on English-language writing from its beginnings to the present day.

Authors should submit their manuscripts online with ScholarOne at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elh

ELH strongly prefers submissions in Word (.doc or .docx) format. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th ed. Manuscripts should be double-spaced, with one-inch margins, in Times New Roman, 12 pt. font. Submissions should be at least 8,000 words in length and should not exceed 12,000 words, including endnotes. An abstract of around 100 words should accompany each submission. 

ELH now adheres to a double-blind review process. Thus no information that would identify the author (including name, affiliation, and expressions of thanks to those who have helped with the project) should appear anywhere in the manuscript. Authors referring to their own prior published work should cite it as a third party would.

Please note that the journal will not consider work currently under review elsewhere. Once a manuscript has been submitted, we are unable to accept further revisions.

Additionally, please note that the journal does not routinely offer readers' reports. Any questions or inquiries should be sent to elh@jhu.edu

It has come to our attention that communications sent via the ScholarOne system very occasionally get caught in spam/junk mail filters. To ensure that messages from ELH reach you, please provide a primary cc address in your author profile, if possible, and check your spam/junk mail folders periodically to make sure that our correspondence has not been diverted from your inbox.

Peer Review Policy

The journal accepts for consideration original essays of 8,000 to 12,000 words, including endnotes; it will not consider work currently under review elsewhere. The Managing Editor of the journal reviews submissions for conformity to length and other stipulations appearing in the author guidelines; unsuitable manuscripts are returned by the Managing Editor. ELH adheres to a double-blind review process and aims to return decisions to authors within four months after date of submission.
