Author Guidelines

Prospective authors for Expositions should register as authors (see the 'On Line Submission' details above).

Expositions is an on-line journal where scholars from various disciplines gather as colleagues to converse about common texts and questions in the humanities. We seek to publish two types of contribution:

  • Excellent papers that either have an inter-disciplinary character and appeal or are exemplary in their respective disciplines while being of interest to those from other disciplines. Articles should be between 3,500 - 8,000 words.

Please prepare your article for blind-review.

With the initial submission, authors should employ the style guide appropriate for their discipline. However, Expositions employs the Chicago Manual of Style conventions, using the author-date system of referencing. If your article is accepted for publication you will be asked to (re)format your manuscript using CMS.

All articles are double-blind peer reviewed. We will acknowledge your submission upon receipt and let you know the anticipated time frame for a decision. If your article is accepted, we will send you further instructions for submitting the final manuscript of your article. There is no charge for submitting articles or for any stage of the peer-review and publication process.

  • Briefer "Notes & Insights" that benefit teaching, research, and the life of the academy. These contributions include: "notes" that reflect upon or challenge existing scholarship; "insights" that provide intriguing new paths of interpretation and close analysis of a text; and "flashes" that are just too exuberant, provocative, or risky to fit in an ordinary article. Perhaps hard to classify within conventional categories, these "Notes & Insights" should make us stop and think, entice us to re-read passages we thought we knew, spark conversations, or otherwise enrich our lives as interdisciplinary teachers and scholars. Word-length will typically be 1,000 to 3,000.

Please submit "notes & insights" by email or mail to the Managing Editors.

The Journal does not publish unsolicited book reviews; please check first with the Book Review Editor if you are interested in submitting a review.

Book Review Address: Book Review Editor, Expositions c/o Villanova Center for Liberal Education, Villanova University, Villanova, PA 19085, USA
