Film History: An International Journal

Vol. 17 (2005) through current issue

Film History focuses on the historical development of the motion picture and the social, technological, and economic context in which this has occurred. Its areas of interest range from the technical and entrepreneurial innovations of the early and pre-cinema experiments, through all aspects of the production, distribution, exhibition, and reception of commercial and non-commercial motion pictures.

Submission Guidelines

Aims and scope

Film History publishes original research on the international history of cinema, broadly and inclusively understood. Its areas of interest include the production, distribution, exhibition, and reception of films designed for commercial theaters as well as the full range of non-theatrical, non-commercial uses of motion pictures; the role of cinema as a contested cultural phenomena; the technological, economic, political, and legal aspects of film history; the circulation of film within and across national borders; and the relations between film and other visual media and forms of commercial entertainment.

In addition to original historical research, Film History also will on occasion publish review essays, report on newly available archival collections, and make available primary documents.

Submission guidelines

Manuscripts, in whole or part, that have been previously published or are currently under consideration for publication elsewhere in either article or review form will not be accepted. Submissions will be considered for publication on the understanding that the author(s) offer Film History the exclusive option to publish their articles.

In the interest of authors, the copyright for all content published in Film History will be the property of The Trustees of Indiana University. Under copyright law, the transfer of copyright from author to publisher must be explicitly stated to enable the publisher to assure maximum dissemination of the author’s work. Authors of accepted articles will be asked to complete and submit the Indiana University Press Consent to Publish Agreement.

Complete manuscripts, in English, should be submitted (as email attachments) in Word, be double-spaced, use a 12-point standard font (e.g., Times New Roman), and have one inch margins. Pages should be numbered consecutively. There should be only one space between a period, comma, semi-colon, or colon and the next character.

Authors should include a brief biographical note, with institutional affiliation, and a 100-word abstract. Abstracts should not include citations. Manuscripts will be reviewed anonymously so the main document/file should give no indication of the author’s identity. Author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s) should be on a separate cover page, together with contact information for the person to whom correspondence should be sent.

Please organize manuscripts as follows: 1. cover page; 2. abstract; 3. text; 4. endnotes; 5. references; 6. tables; 7. figures

Manuscripts should typically not exceed 10,000 words in length, including endnotes, references, tables, etc. For all matters of spelling, abbreviation, punctuation, and form, please consult the latest edition of Chicago Manual of StyleExternal Link.

Please number references and notes separately. Each reference should correspond to the appropriate numeral in the text. Footnotes will not appear on text pages. Full citations are required.

Authors are responsible for obtaining permission for any copyrighted material used, including illustrations, and will be asked to provide formal written permission upon acceptance for publication. Authors are expected to adhere to the standards for intellectual property rights and plagiarism, and authors assume full responsibility for the content of their submissions.

Illustrations, including frame enlargements (with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi), must be provided by the author. Please indicate in the text the position of figures, tables, and illustrations, which should appear after the references at the end of the document. Provide figure captions on a separate page.

Film Titles: Film titles in the text and in captions should be given in the language of the original release. The publisher will typeset these in italic characters. Where English translations are shown in parentheses, they will be set in normal type. On the first mention of a film in the text, indicate the year of release. Examples: Black Narcissus (1947), Der Letzte Mann (The Last Laugh, 1924). For purposes of clarity, the English release title may sometimes be used after first citing the original. Example: Kohayagawa-ke No Aki (The End of Summer,1961) may later be cited simply as The End of Summer.

Dates: Dates should be presented uniformly as March 13, 1943 or Wednesday, March 10,1993. Ranges of years are shown as 1914-18 and decades as 1910s or 1990s.

Figures: The lettering on diagrams should be sufficiently large to withstand reduction. Number figures according to their appearance in the text, referring to them as Fig. 1, etc. (use Figure at start of sentences). Do not write on the figure.

Tables: Tables must be discussed or mentioned in the text and numbered (with arabic numerals) in order of mention. Each table should have a brief descriptive title, should be understandable even without reference to the text, and should replace text rather than duplicate it.

Paperless Workflow: IUP/Journals utilizes a paperless workflow. Copyedited manuscripts will be provided to authors by the editorial office as email attachments for a final review. Manuscripts, with changes either accepted or rejected, should be returned to the editorial office as email attachments. PDFs of page proofs will be available to authors and returned by them to the editorial office as email attachments. Only typographical errors may be corrected on the proofs.
