Editorial Policies

Focus and Scope

An important aim of the journal is to provide a space in which postgraduates in English studies can place their work and, if accepted for publication, receive feedback from established academics.

We are a UK-based journal but will also consider international submissions that the editors consider meet with an appropriate standard of English.

One section will provide for academic articles (which will be refereed) and another devoted to papers on postgraduate issues, and another for reviews (which need not be refereed).

The term "English studies," of course, can be interpreted fairly widely, not excluding, for instance, work in cultural studies.

Peer Review Process

An Editorial Board of thirty or so established academics is in place to advise across the whole range of English Studies. Academic articles received are usually matched with a suitable reviewer who is requested to provide brief feedback to be posted in the journal if the article is deemed publishable. Material for the Forum and Reviews sections of the journal are judged by the editors.

 

Publication Frequency

The journal is published twice a year, in Spring and Autumn, and is updated at those times.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

 

About Postgraduate English

An important aim of the journal is to provide a space in which postgraduates in English studies can place their work and, if accepted for publication, receive feedback from established academics.

We are a UK-based journal but will also consider international submissions that the editors consider meet with an appropriate standard of English.

One section will provide for academic articles (which will be refereed) and another devoted to papers on postgraduate issues, and another for reviews (which need not be refereed).

The term "English studies," of course, can be interpreted fairly widely, not excluding, for instance, work in cultural studies.

A parallel section (the Forum) receives papers on postgraduate life and related issues (which need not be refereed). The Forum will be pleased to act either as an archive for any conferences specifically aimed at postgraduates. There is also a section called PG Tips which will hold many useful addresses and other sources of information on issues relating to postgraduate life (e.g. on research resources, teaching, jobs, and general literary resources).
