  • The South Atlantic Quarterly uses an all-special-issue, guest-edited format that precludes the submission of unsolicited manuscripts. It does not use a blinded peer-review process, but its two-tiered review process is roughly equivalent. All issues of the journal are organized by guest editors, who solicit contributions from established scholars whose work they know. (There is no open submission process for SAQ.) Once authors submit their essays, it is the responsibility of the guest editor(s) to review the text and return to the author for revisions. Revised essays are subsequently submitted to the general editor, who again suggests revisions if necessary. At both points in the review process, the special-issue editor(s) and the general editor must reject essays whose quality is below the standards of the journal. Proposals for special issues from potential guest editors are welcome, though, and should be sent to the editor at SAQ, Duke University, Box 90660, Durham, NC 27708-0660; phone: 919-687-3644; fax: 919-688-5595; saq@dukeupress.edu.

  • Description

    The South Atlantic Quarterly, founded amid controversy in 1901, provides bold analyses of the current intellectual scene, both nationally and worldwide. Published exclusively in guest-edited special issues, this award-winning centenarian journal features some of the most prominent contemporary writers and scholars tackling urgent political, cultural, and social questions. Some issues grow out of current academic debates, concerning, for example, the growing power of finance, narratives of black leadership, and the politics of austerity.

    Each issue of SAQ also features a second thematic section composed of short essays that engage a topic of contemporary political importance. The title of this section, “Against the Day,” is meant to highlight both the modes of activism and the specific occasion that the essays address.

    "It's not easy to be both daring and indispensable, but SAQ has consistently been both. It has stretched its readers politically and geographically, setting a distinctive standard for its seriousness of thought and worldliness of topics."—Bruce Robbins, Columbia University

    "Among the countless journals now bidding for our scarce attention, SAQ is a sure bet. Quite simply one of the best sources of new ideas in political thought, social motion, and human mentality."—Andrew Ross, New York University
