Special Issues

The Victorian Review invites potential guest editors to propose topics for special issues. If you have an idea for a special issue, and would be willing to serve as guest editor, please send your proposal, with a description of the topic and its relevance to the field of Victorian studies, to the Editor. If the journal’s editorial committee approves the special issue, the guest editor will then solicit the essays (often through a call for papers, personal invitation, or some combination), review the submissions, make a selection of five to six for the issue, and forward these to the Editor. The editorial committee will review the essays and arrange for anonymous, peer review by at least one reader. The guest editor will receive the readers’ reports and work with the authors to revise the essays. The committee reserves the right to refuse publication to any article that fails to meet its standards for publication. In addition to soliciting the essays and overseeing the revision process, the guest editor will provide a brief (3,000 word) introduction to the special issue.
