Poe Studies: History, Theory, Interpretation provides a forum for dialogue about Edgar Allan Poe's life and writings, and about the cultural and material contexts that shaped the production and reception of his work. The editors wish to define "Poe studies" broadly--to include articles that engage the period in which Poe wrote, writers with whom he was affiliated or whom he inspired, theoretical and philosophical issues raised by his work, and artistic movements associated with him, such as gothicism, detective fiction, symbolism, and metafiction.

Poe Studies: History, Theory, Interpretation invites submission of original articles and notes, welcomes work grounded in a wide range of theoretical and critical perspectives, and encourages inquiries proposing submissions and projects. The editors of Poe Studies do not review essays that are simultaneously under consideration elsewhere.

Electronic submissions are preferred; send in Microsoft Word format by email attachment. To aid blind review, the author's name should not appear on the essay itself. Contributions should conform to The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition. Submissions that find their way into the journal's pages typically range from 6,000 to 13,000 words—depending on the requirements of the argument in question. (Unrevised dissertation chapters are not likely to meet with success.)

Time of report is normally two to four months. Email submissions to poestudiesjournal@gmail.com. Send inquiries to emronesplin@gmail.com.

Peer Review Policy

Poe Studies: History, Theory, Interpretation invites submission of original articles and notes, welcomes work grounded in a wide range of theoretical and critical perspectives, and encourages inquiries proposing submissions and projects. The editors do not review essays that are simultaneously under consideration elsewhere. Book reviews are usually solicited and vetted in-house by editors.

The journal conducts a double-anonymous review process: 1) submissions are initially evaluated in-house by the editors for general suitability and returned to authors or advanced; 2) those that are advanced go to two outside specialist readers, and any invited revisions are typically evaluated again by those readers. Submissions that find their way into the journal's pages make clearly new and persuasively argued contributions that reflect a thorough knowledge of the state of the field, and they typically range from 6,000 to 13,000 words—depending on the requirements of the argument in question. (Unrevised dissertation chapters are not likely to meet with success.) Time of report is normally two to four months. Time from acceptance to publication is 6 months to 2 years.

Newly Translated Poe Scholarship

Poe is a mainstay in literary traditions and popular culture around the world. Both major and minor studies have been written on Poe in numerous languages, but much of this scholarship is only available in the source texts.

“Newly Translated Poe Scholarship” is a running feature in Poe Studies (starting with the 2020 volume of the journal) that offers English translations of previously untranslated scholarship on Poe.

Proposals for possible scholarship to be translated for “Newly Translated Poe Scholarship” should be sent directly to the journal’s editor, Emron Esplin, at emronesplin@gmail.com, and they should include the following:

  • The name of the author and the title of the piece being proposed for translation
  • The word count of the piece in its source language
  • A 250- to 500-word description of the scholar, the piece, and their significance in establishing, altering, or questioning Poe’s position, influence, or importance in that particular scholarly tradition
  • A sentence that affirms that the piece has not previously been published in English translation
  • The name and email address of the proposed translator
    • The translator can be the same person who writes the proposal
    • If the writer of the proposal is not the translator, the proposal creator will need to demonstrate that he/she has been in contact with the proposed translator
  • A brief discussion of whether or not the proposed piece of scholarship is in the public domain or whether the proposal writer plans to seek permission from the copyright holders to publish the translation

Review copies should be sent to:

Book reviews are usually solicited, but proposals for reviews may be sent to poestudiesjournal@gmail.com.
