Peer Review Policy

Modernism/modernity (M/m) requests that all article submissions be original work, not currently submitted elsewhere. We do occasionally run previously unavailable primary material (including in translation) with suitable introductions in our “Out of the Archive” feature. Material that is clearly unsuitable for the journal is returned before peer review. We employ mutually anonymous peer review; once the submission is placed with two reviewers, we ask that it be returned within 6-8 weeks. Reviewers are asked to judge the manuscript’s suitability for M/m in particular, not merely its worth for a specialized readership.

Most revised manuscripts are returned to the original reviewers, with the same expectation for turnaround. Informal pieces, such as those for the various blogs on the Print Plus platform (, do not go through peer review, but are assigned and edited by the curators of the individual sections.
