Arizona Quarterly publishes scholarly essays on American literature, culture and theory. It is our mission to subject these categories to debate, argument, interpretation, and contestation via critical readings of primary texts. We accept essays that are grounded in textual, formal, cultural, and theoretical examination of texts and situated with respect to current academic conversations whilst extending the boundaries thereof.

Guidelines for submission:

1. Recommended length is 6,000 to 10,000 words.

2. Follow MLA Handbook, 7th edition.

3. Include URLs for all web citations in the works cited.

4. Format all material—including quotations, notes, references, and poetry—as follows: single-sided, double-spaced, 1-inch margins, 12-point font.

5. Write an abstract (50–150 words) on its own page.

6. Submissions can be either e-mailed or sent as a paper copy:

A. E-mailed copy: Attach as Word (or other word-processing) file with all identifying information removed. Use the body of the e-mail as a cover letter, including complete return address. Send to azqsubmissions@email.arizona.edu with the subject line “Submission: Surname, Short Title.”

7. Photocopies of or low-res illustrations are acceptable for first review, but high-quality TIFF files should accompany the final manuscript. Arizona Quarterly, however, reserves the right to exclude any illustration.

8. Authors are responsible for obtaining copyright permissions.

Peer Review Policy

Arizona Quarterly accepts original works of 6,000-10,000 words not under consideration elsewhere. Qualified submissions are sent out within four weeks of submission for double-blind review to at least two specialists. Criteria for review include but are not limited to: academic quality, relevance to current scholarly debates, style and clarity of writing, suitability to our journal, and conformity to our guidelines. While we try to provide authors with feedback, reader's reports are provided at the reviewers’ and/or editors’ discretion.

Decisions are typically reported between four and six months after the original manuscript is submitted. Authors who receive “revise and resubmit” or “accept with revisions” verdicts are asked to return revised manuscripts within two months, and typically receive a final verdict within one month thereafter. Arizona Quarterly reserves the right to withdraw acceptance at any point in the publication process.
