We welcome the submission of manuscripts to the James Joyce Quarterly. Articles, notes, and other items can be submitted electronically and should be submitted as a PDF or Word document. If you elect to submit a print version, please send three copies to our postal address along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope. All identifying marks and references should be removed from the essay.
Manuscripts should not ordinarily exceed twenty pages and should follow the Chicago Manual of Style in all matters of form. Take care to remove all identifying information from the body, notes, headers, and footers. Your name and contact information should appear only on a cover page. References to Joyce’s works and to the Ellmann biography are to be cited parenthetically within the body of the paper, using the abbreviations listed below. We consider these the standard editions; they are to be cited unless there is a special need to use another text, in which case the text is to be cited in an endnote.
If you have any questions about submissions, please contact our Managing Editor, Carol Kealiher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
