Who Can Submit?
Anyone may submit an original article to be considered for publication in International Yeats Studies provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted.
General Submission Rules
International Yeats Studies seeks original articles of roughly 7,000–11,000 words (excluding notes) in all areas of study related to Yeats.
Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Please note:By submitting material to International Yeats Studies, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at International Yeats Studies. If you have concerns about the submission terms for International Yeats Studies, please contact the editors.
Should your article be accepted, please note that no changes will be allowed after proofs and publication. Readers of the journal must be able to confidently cite each article, knowing that it will remain unchanged in the future.
International Yeats Studies has no general rules about the formatting of articles upon initial submission. There are, however, rules governing the formatting of the final submission. See Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for details.
Peer Review Process
IYS is a refereed journal that uses an anonymous review process.
All submissions undergo an initial review by the journal's general editor. The initial review will determine whether the submission aligns with the purpose and scope of IYS. The general editor will also review the manuscript for adherence to technical specifications related to manuscript preparation; article categorization and associated word count; organization, cohesion, and consistency in development of the topic; clarity and precision of the writing; consistency and accuracy in presentations and discussions of data; accuracy in citations and references; proper grammar, mechanics, and style; and avoidance of errors (e.g., typos, repeated words). Prior to submitting to IYS, authors should take care to ensure that the article conforms to the journal's style. The general editor may reject the manuscript if its subject falls outside the purpose and scope of IYS or when the submission falls short of the aforementioned technical requirements. If advanced to the next stage, the submission is sent anonymously to two specialists in Yeats Studies. The reviewers' reports inform the general editor's publication decision; the general editor's decision is final.
International Yeats Society will take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of articles and reviews where research misconduct has occurred. In no case will the editors or publisher encourage such misconduct or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.
As noted in our statement on publication ethics, International Yeats Society has a zero tolerance policy with respect to plagiarism and other forms of academic dishonesty, including research misconduct. Articles or reviews that violate these standards will be rejected. If these works have already been published, the piece will be removed from the journal and IYS will publish a statement of correction (which will include clarifications and apologies if appropriate).
