Please send the manuscript as an attachment to Anita W. Harris, Managing Editor, at anita@substance.org, considering the following guidelines:

  • Use MLA (Modern Languages Association) documentation style (8th edition handbook). For quick reference, Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab is a good resource: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/675/01/
  • Article length is usually between 7,000 - 8,000 words. Please edit longer articles so the argument comes forward succinctly.
  • Include a short abstract on the first page of the document (100 words max.)
  • Submit articles in MS Word or compatible format.
  • Note that our review process can take up to six months.

Book reviews and requests should be submitted to our Book Reviews Editor, Rosemarie Scullion, at rosemarie-scullion@uiowa.edu

The Hopkins Press Journals Ethics and Malpractice Statement can be found here.

Peer Review Policy

SubStance seeks to publish original work, which should not be under consideration at another journal. For our submission policy, please see our Guidelines for Contributors. In addition, please note that articles written in French will be considered for review, but need to be translated to English should they be accepted.

Translations of work published in a language other than English are occasionally published if they make important contributions to fields of interest of the journal.

All submitted articles are subject to blind peer review by our editors. Our review process can take up to six months. If we ask for revision, revised and resubmitted articles are reassessed within approximately one month. Publication timetable depends on space, but is usually within one year of acceptance. We publish three issues per year, in Spring, Summer, and Fall.
