American Studies

Vol. 48 (2007) through current issue

A quarterly interdisciplinary journal sponsored by the Mid-America American Studies Association, the University of Kansas, and the Hall Center for the Humanities. American Studies first appeared in 1959, and has 1,000 current subscribers. In 2005 it merged with American Studies International. The journal emphasizes interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary scholarship in U.S. cultures and histories broadly defined, including comparative, international, and/or transnational perspectives.

E-ISSN: 2153-6856
Print ISSN: 0026-3079

Guidelines for Contributors



Guidelines for Contributors

Format and style of submissions: Manuscripts (including endnotes, tables, and references) should be double-spaced with one-inch margins on all sides. All manuscripts should be in a Word document, be between 20 and 30 pages, not including endnotes. All footnotes/endnotes should use Arabic numerals, not Roman numerals. All figures should be placed at the end of the manuscript. All manuscripts not meeting these standards will be returned to the author for reformatting. Because American Studies uses a double-blind review process, contributors are asked not to put their names on manuscripts; only the title should appear on the manuscript.

Contributors agree upon submission that manuscripts submitted to American Studies will not be submitted for publication elsewhere while under review by American Studies. Manuscripts should be prepared following the most recent editions of Chicago, MLA or APA. All accepted articles not in Chicago format will need to be converted to Chicago prior to publication.

Form of submissions: We strongly encourage authors to submit their work using the Journal’s online submission system. We encourage authors to submit manuscripts (with a 300 word abstract) electronically. For questions regarding submissions or the online submission system, please contact Alex Stucky at asjo@ku.edu.

Photographs and other imagery often enhance the text and the journal considerably; the Editors encourage authors to provide illustrations with their submissions.

Additional guidelines for contributors, including more information on submitting images, can be found at https://journals.ku.edu/index.php/amerstud/about/submissions.
