Editorial Policies

Article Submissions:

Articles submitted for publication in the journal should not exceed thirty typewritten pages, double spaced, they should follow the MLA Style sheet (7th edition).

Formatting notes –differences from MLA

1. Use “In” between title of essay and title of volume

Iovino, Serenella. “Ecocriticism and a Non-Anthropocentric Humanism: Reflections on Local Natures and Global Responsibilities.” In Local Natures, Global Responsibilities. Ecocritical Perspectives on the New English Literatures. Ed. Laurenz Volkmann, Nancy Grimm, Ines Detmers e Katrin Thomson. Amsterdam: Rodopi, 2010.  29-53.

2. If quoting an essay in a single-authored collection, repeat last name and comma before title of volume, e.g.:

Di Gesù, Matteo. “Luigi Malerba, lo sperimentalismo ed il Postmoderno.” In Di Gesù, La tradizione del postmoderno: studi di letteratura italiana. Milano: Angeli, 2003. 50-64.

3. Use MLA abbreviation with following exceptions:

A cura di (NOT a c. di)

when following the title (cf. Iovino example above), Ed. is always singular because it stands for edited by. On the contrary, it is plural (eds.) when it follows the name of the editors at the beginning of an entry.
