Partial Answers is an international, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal that focuses on the study of literature and the history of ideas. Partial Answers strives to explore ways in which literary texts can be perceived both as works of art and as testing grounds for ideas. The editors believe literary works participate in the history of ideas, whether understood as a continuous line of development, as a process of inheriting and correcting schemas, or as a sequence of archeological layers.

The editors believe literary works participate in the history of ideas, whether understood as a continuous line of development, as a process of inheriting and correcting schemas, or as a sequence of archeological layers. Partial Answers publishes articles on various national literatures including Anglophone, Hebrew, Yiddish, German, Russian, and predominately English literature.

The editorial board will consider articles of 3,000 to 10,000 words, written in accordance with The Chicago Manual of Style 15th edition. Submissions, along with cover pages and abstracts, should be sent to partans@mail.huji.ac.il .

Peer Review Policy

Submissions to Partial Answers: Journal of Literature and the History of Ideas must be original work not submitted simultaneously elsewhere. Translations of work previously published in other languages are not accepted. The journal does not reprint previously published work, though articles may include up to 30 percent of already published material, with proper reference. Occasionally, the journal prints translations of old materials (such as an essay published in Yiddish in 1918) if they are discussed in new original essays in the same issue of the journal.

On arrival, each submission is assigned by the Managing Editor to a member of the Editorial Board for in-house review. This member becomes “the sponsor” of the paper. The sponsor recommends to either reject the paper outright, or to ask the author to revise and resubmit, or to send the paper to external peer review. The recommendations are vetted by the Editor in Chief. If the paper is close to the sponsor’s research interests, the sponsor suggests several possible peer reviewers. Otherwise, the peer-reviewers are sought out by the Editor in Chief.

The peer-review is double-blind. Two external reviewers assess each submission except for invited papers, which are sent only to one external reviewer. In the case of guest-edited issues or fora, half of the peer-reviewing is done by the guest editors, but the journal sends the (revised) papers out to one more peer-reviewer of its own choice. The criteria for review are appropriateness to the journal’s niche, original thought/original contribution to research in the field, competence regarding previous research in the field, and clarity. The authors may be asked to revise the papers either after preliminary in-house review or after external peer-review or both times. The revised papers are usually evaluated in-house; external reviewers are sought in cases of hesitation. Unless the author takes a long time to revise, the whole process takes about four months, though sometimes there are delays, which we are trying to eliminate. 

Informal pieces, including occasional obituary-type essays and guest-editors’ introductions to fora, are evaluated in-house (by several people) or with the help of one external reviewer. Book reviews are evaluated in-house only.
