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.
