Author Guidelines

Modernism/modernity has a centralized submission system, utilizing the ScholarOne web-based portal. Contributors to the journal must submit manuscripts electronically using this system, which may be accessed by clicking here. The progress of articles through editorial processing can be tracked through the ScholarOne system.

Although we welcome contributions specifically geared to the digital platform, submissions are considered for the journal as a whole, and are scheduled based on editorial needs and at the discretion of the editors. Articles should be 7,000-11,000 words, inclusive of notes. Please double-space manuscripts throughout, with one-inch margins and endnotes. Style and format should be consistent with The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed. or above. Before uploading, please ensure that all submissions are entirely anonymous. This means deleting any identifying information within the text of your submission. It also means deleting any identifying metadata within the document itself. If you feel your contribution is particularly suited to the Print Plus platform, please indicate this in your cover letter.

It is the author's sole responsibility to obtain permissions for illustrations, as well as any copyright clearances required for the publication of a submission. A black-and-white glossy print or a 300 dpi TIFF file of each illustration will be needed by the time of publication: the Print Plus platform can accommodate additional media. Captions should be written in a separate document, with appropriate credits and permissions.

All correspondence regarding book reviews should be directed to Clemence Sfadj at For all other correspondence contact
