Romani Studies is an international, interdisciplinary journal publishing modern scholarship in all branches of Romani/Gypsy studies. Founded in 1888, the Journal of the Gypsy Lore Society was published in four series up to 1982. In 2000, the journal became Romani Studies. Under the sponsorship of the Gypsy Lore Society (formerly Gypsy Lore Society, North American Chapter), Romani Studies features articles on the cultures of groups traditionally known as Gypsies as well as Travellers and other peripatetic groups. These groups include, among others, those referring to themselves as Rom, Roma, Romanichels, Sinti and Travellers. The journal publishes articles in history, anthropology, sociology, linguistics, art, literature, folklore and music, as well as reviews of books and audiovisual materials.

Guidelines for Contributors



General

Romani Studies welcomes articles in all scholarly disciplines dealing with any aspect of the cultures of groups traditionally known as Roma/Gypsies as well as those of traveller or peripatetic groups. Reviews of books and audiovisual materials are also published. Fields covered include anthropology, art, folklore, history, linguistics, literature, political science, sociology, and their various branches.

Romani Studies is a peer-refereed scholarly publication. Article manuscripts are generally evaluated by the editor and two anonymous referees. Authors will be notified when a decision has been made to accept or reject a manuscript. Rejection may be outright, or with the possibility of revision and resubmission for a new evaluation. A manuscript submitted to the journal should not be under consideration by any other journal at the same time or have been published elsewhere.

Reviews and review articles are solicited by the editors. Persons who wish to review particular books should contact the Book Review Editor.

English is the publication language of the journal. Non-native speakers/writers are strongly advised to seek the support of a proof-reader with native-language competence before submitting their manuscript for publication. Subject to financial limitations and the availability of translators, the editor might consider articles submitted in languages other than English. Quotations in the texts of articles should be translated into English and the original text of the quotation should be supplied for editorial purposes. Linguistic data cited should be in the original language.

Electronic submission of articles in attachment (in Word or RTF format) is preferred for review, unless the text contains extensive picture material, in which case three hard copies of papers are required. Manuscripts generally should not exceed 40 doublespaced pages. Manuscripts, including notes, quotations, and lists of references cited, should be double-spaced on one side only of a4 or 8½ × 11-inch paper.
