Aims & Scope

In order to be considered for publication, all submissions must be substantially informed by current scholarly literature on onomastics and mindful of its characteristic methods. Given the expertise of the editor and editorial advisory board, studies dealing with literatures in Old, Middle and Modern English as well as other languages of Western and Central Europe will be particularly welcome, though occasional issues under guest editorship dealing with other literary traditions may appear as well. All submissions must be in English and citations must follow the most recent edition of the MLA Handbook. The journal will publish both article-length submissions and notes; reviews will be commissioned. Issues appear once per year.

Books for review should be sent to the following address:

Editor, Journal of Literary Onomastics

Department of English
