Past Issues

Calls for Papers


Concentric: Literary and Cultural Studies has two groupings of articles in each issue: those that examine that issue’s special topic and those that examine other topics. For current special topics, please see our Calls for Papers. Submissions can focus on any historical period and any region. Any critical method may be employed as long as the paper demonstrates a distinctive contribution to scholarship in the field. All published articles undergo a double-blind peer review process.

Please send the manuscript, an abstract of no more than 250 words with 5-8 keywords, and a brief curriculum vitae as Word attachments (not PDF) to concentric.lit@deps.ntnu.edu.tw. Manuscripts should be double-spaced in 12-point Times New Roman font, 6,000 to 10,000 words in length exclusive of Works Cited, and prepared according to the latest edition of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. Single-spaced footnotes should be kept to a strict minimum. We follow American English spelling and use serial commas. Please indicate whether your submission is intended for a special topic and affirm that your manuscript is not being considered for publication elsewhere.

More Information on Submissions

1. Concentric does not tolerate plagiarism in any form.

2. There must be no indication of personal identity or institutional affiliation in the manuscript. The author may cite their previous works, but only in the third person.

3. If the paper has been published elsewhere in a language other than English, please also submit a copy of the non-English version. Concentric may not consider submissions already available in other languages.

4. The author is solely responsible for obtaining permission to use any copyrighted images.

5. All authors must sign an assignment of copyright.

6. If a manuscript passes the initial in-house review and is sent out for double-blind peer review, it will be assessed by two or three external readers. Readers are recommended by the editor, guest editor, editorial board members, and/or advisory board members. To ensure transparency and objectivity, the editorial board makes final publication decisions collectively.
