In addition, all manuscripts should be typed with size 12 font, 1 inch margins, and double-spacing. Informational footnotes should be kept to a minimum. Though we do not maintain formal length requirements, the editors recommend that all manuscripts remain within the range of 20–32 pages, including footnotes and works cited. Novel reserves the right to return submissions that do not meet these specifications.

    Manuscripts should be submitted both electronically and by hard copy, along with a cover letter containing all relevant contact information (e-mail, mailing address). Electronic copies of the manuscript and cover letter should be sent in PDF format to novel.forum@duke.edu. One hard copy of the manuscript and cover letter should be sent to Novel: A Forum on Fiction, Department of English, Duke University, Box 90015, Durham, NC 27708-0015.

    All submissions received will be acknowledged via e-mail upon arrival, and all official correspondence regarding the editors' decisions will also be sent by e-mail. Please keep us apprised of any anticipated changes of address or contact information.

    Novel's three-stage review process typically takes 12–16 weeks, allowing time for processing by the editorial staff and for initial editorial review, evaluation by external specialist readers in relevant fields, and, finally, the Editorial Board's consideration.

  • Description

    Novel is the official journal of the Society for Novel Studies.

    Novel is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the best new criticism and theory in novel studies. The journal took up this mission in the days of formalism and has responded to the innovative moments in the field during the half-century that has elapsed since then--including ideology critique, feminist and critical race theory, poststructuralism, cultural studies, and new historicism--by publishing the most interesting new work on the novel. During a time of rapidly increasing globalization, biopolitical and environmental crises, and the rise of various models of affect theory, the novel and how we read it are undergoing a sea change. Novel is especially interested in theory and scholarship that addresses these changes in terms of their formal, historical, political, and/or epistemological significance.
