(If you do not have Adobe Reader, you can download it for free from the Adobe Reader web site.)

General Submission Guidelines:

Essays and review articles should present well-focused arguments of approximately 20-30 pages (5,000-9,000 words, including footnotes). Conference papers or dissertation chapters must be revised to make fully developed, self-sufficient arguments. Clio will not consider any submissions that are currently under consideration at any other journal.

Manuscripts should follow The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition (with footnotes kept to a minimum). List name and affiliation on a separate cover sheet, but include only the essay’s title on the manuscript itself to facilitate blind reading of submissions. Please include an abstract of 150-200 words that summarizes the key points of your article.

Electronic essay submissions only: please submit documents in Word (.docx) format only.

We also need complete contact information, including preferred email address, and street address. If submitting an article, please send your text as an email attachment to [email protected]. If submitting a book review or review article, please also send a copy of your review to the commissioning editor - Lachlan Whalen.

You may expect a decision regarding publication within four months.

Copy editing and related queries will be handled via email using MS Word's Track Changes and Comments functionality extensively. Book reviews are solicited by the book review editors.
