Studies in Philology has been a leader in literary scholarship since 1906. Through the whole of its history, the journal’s home has been the Department of English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As its principal mission, the journal considers for publication articles on British literature from the pre-Conquest period through Romanticism. But we also welcome contributions on continental European and Neo-Latin literature, especially articles that address interdisciplinary issues of interest to literary and intellectual historians.
Reid Barbour is the Roy C. Moose Distinguished Professor in Renaissance Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Submissions: please email essays as Word docs to email@example.com. Authors should double-space their essays, number their pages, and remove their identity from the article itself. There is no word limit. Although Studies in Philology employs a modified version of the Chicago style of citation, there is no urgency to convert essays until they are accepted for publication.
The editor strives to secure helpful readings for authors within a period of two months or less. Barring unforeseen circumstances, the review process is not allowed to extend beyond three months. The editorial readers for Studies in Philology include, in addition to the Editorial Board, members of the graduate faculty of the departments of languages and literatures in the University of North Carolina. The editor works closely with these consultants to arrive at a fair and productive assessment of each essay, no matter whether we accept, reject, or ask for revision and resubmission. Although ‘revise and resubmit’ does not guarantee eventual acceptance, the editor does not invite resubmission as a gentle way to reject an article; he encourages resubmission only if the journal is genuinely interested in the work. The editor also attempts to give honest advice about how authors who are either rejected or invited to resubmit might best proceed.
We are keen to publish work by scholars at all stages of their careers.
