Submission Guidelines

Tolkien Studies seeks works of scholarly quality and depth. Substantial essays and shorter, "Notes and Documents" pieces are both welcome.

Submissions should be double-spaced throughout and use parenthetical citations in the Author-page or Author-keyword-page form. A Works Cited page and other formatting issues should conform to the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing, 3rd ed. This is a change in policy from previous issues. All citations to Tolkien’s works should follow the “Conventions and Abbreviations” of Tolkien Studies.

Self-addressed, stamped envelopes should accompany all correspondence unless the author wishes to communicate via email and does not wish the hard-copy manuscript to be returned, in which case this requirement is waived.

Electronic submissions are preferred. These should be sent to Verlyn Flieger (verlyn@mythus.com) as attachments. Microsoft Word is the preferred word-processing program.
