Since its inception in 1969, Studies in the Novel has published incisive criticism of the novel across all periods and genres, and from all interpretive approaches. Covering both emerging and established novelists, its issues feature five to six essays, eight to ten reviews of recent books on novels and novelists, and the occasional review essay. Ambitious, comprehensive coverage includes essays reflecting interdisciplinary and theoretically diverse approaches to the novel, and articles are rigorously refereed by scholars drawn from an extensive international pool. Once a year, Studies in the Novel engages a renowned guest editor and publishes a special issue focused on a single topic or author. Studies in the Novel is a member journal of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals.
