Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature welcomes the submission of Articles, Notes, and Archives essays on literature in all time periods and places, including foreign-language literatures, and in every genre—poetry, prose, drama, essays, diaries, memoirs, journalism, and criticism. While Articles need not be exclusively concerned with female writers, the focus must be on women and writing, explicating the specific links between the woman writer and her work. Tulsa Studies particularly encourages work in feminist critical and literary theory.
Articles that introduce the work of unknown or lesser-known women writers or that provide new interpretations of works by well-known women writers must place the writer and her work in some larger literary, historical, political, or social framework and argue a thesis that encompasses more than a reading of a single text or several texts by a single author. Articles should be 6,000 to 9,000 words, excluding endnotes. Please also send an abstract of no more than 100-200 words.
Notes in Tulsa Studies need to present 1) new, factual material concerning a writer or her work; or 2) illuminate a problem of textual interpretation based on factual bibliographical or biographical information. Archives essays should be presented as bibliographies, descriptions of particular archives, or narratives of archival research. They should be limited to 1500-3000 words (see descriptions on p. 144 of Vol. 5, No. 1, and pp. 213-14 of Vol. 25, No. 2).
Tulsa Studies publishes both Book Reviews and Review Essays. Book Reviews are requested by the Book Review Editor. Review Essays are commissioned by the Editor.
All submissions to Tulsa Studies that meet the criteria detailed above receive a minimum of two readings: first, one or two readings by members of the Editorial Board and/or specialist readers, and then one by the Editor. Final decisions for publication rest with the Editor. All submissions must be in English; foreign-language quotations will be printed with accompanying English-language translations provided by the author. Tulsa Studies does not consider submissions that have been published or are under consideration elsewhere.
Tulsa Studies requests that electronic submissions be made as Microsoft Word attachments. Cover letters should be sent as a separate attachment. If preferred, an original and three copies of a paper manuscript may be submitted with a self-addressed envelope bearing postage sufficient for the return of one copy of the manuscript (U. S. postage only; manuscripts to international addresses cannot be returned). All submissions must use endnotes that conform to the most recent edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. Contributors are responsible for providing complete and accurate bibliographical documentation. Standard typeface is required on all texts. Submissions are given anonymous review. Contributors’ names should not appear on manuscripts (but rather on a cover letter and the abstract); authors may speak in the first person but should not identify themselves by name in the text of the essay or in the accompanying notes.
Address submissions to: Editor, Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature, 800 S. Tucker Drive, Tulsa, OK 74104; or firstname.lastname@example.org. TSWL at the University of Tulsa holds copyright on all published materials.
