Peer Review Policy

Work submitted to Postmodern Culture (PMC) should be original, advance its fields of inquiry, have a clear focus and argument, and situate its claims in its relevant fields. PMC mostly publishes argumentative essays of 6,000-9,000 words but also supports experimental work when it is warranted. The journal may also consider English translations of theory or work suitable to our popular-culture column, but not fiction or poetry.

In the interest of authors, the journal considers simultaneous submission, but not work that is already published elsewhere. All submissions are screened by the editors in-house. Work that is suitable or the journal is sent to two reviewers from the journal's editorial board for double-anonymous review. Authors may be asked to revise their work, depending on the reviewers' comments, at which point work will return to the reviewers who requested revisions. Initial consideration can take 1-4 weeks; outside review varies, depending on availability of expert reviewers, but usually takes 8-10 weeks.
