Author Guidelines

Dickens Quarterlyis edited by Dominic Rainsford, Professor of Literature in English at Aarhus University, Denmark. The journal publishes articles of up to 9,000 words, shorter essays, notices and reviews. Contributors are asked to submit their work as a Word file (.doc or .docx) to dominic.rainsford@cc.au.dk. Every effort will be made to decide on acceptances as quickly as possible. DQhouse style uses footnotes rather than endnotes, and is otherwise based upon theMLA Handbook, 8th edition, with the addition of place of publication in the Works Cited (e.g. Ledger, Sally, and Holly Furneaux, editors. Charles Dickens in Context. Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 2011.) In-text citations of Dickens’s works should include both pagination and chapter number (00; ch. 00) and, where applicable, the book number (00; bk. 00, ch. 00). Citations from any of the following editions of Dickens are acceptable: Clarendon Dickens, Oxford World’s Classics or (forthcoming) Oxford Dickens editions; Everyman; Norton Critical Editions; and Penguin English Classics (as well as other editions when there is a specific scholarly justification). References to Dickens’s journalism should in most cases use Dickens’ Journalism, edited by Michael Slater and John Drew, 4 vols., London: J. M. Dent, 1994–2000. References to Dickens's letters should whenever possible be drawn from The Letters of Charles Dickens, edited by Madeline House et al., 12 vols., Oxford: Clarendon, 1965–2002. For references to Forster’s Lifeby book and chapter number (bk. 00; ch. 00), DQprefers either John Forster, The Life of Charles Dickens, edited by A. J. Hoppé, 2 vols., London: J. M. Dent, 1966, or John Forster, The Life of Charles Dickens, edited by J. W. T. Ley, London: Cecil Palmer, 1928.
