Author Guidelines

Authors should submit their manuscripts online with ScholarOne at

ELH strongly prefers submissions in Word (.doc or .docx) format. Manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th 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.

Please note that the journal does not routinely offer readers' reports. Any questions or inquiries should be sent to

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.
