Online Reviews

Nineteenth Century Studies invites brief reviews of publications relevant to the journal's publishing mission. Review submissions are by invitation and subject to editorial policies and procedures, but prospective reviewers are welcome to submit inquiries or proposals along with an updated C.V. Unlike review essays—which are published in the regular issue of the journal, and which typically treat several publications by way of ambitious overviews of a current area of inquiry—the online reviews are limited to treating one publication, and at a maximum length of approximately 1,000 words. The editors retain the right to reject submissions that do not adhere to editorial guidelines and standards.

Click here for a list of suggested books recently published on the 2015 NCSA conference topic of materiality and on the 2016 conference topic of "the new." If you wish to review a book from this list, or if you have a suggestion for a relevant recent title not on this list that you would like to review, please email Jennifer Hayward with your idea and attach an updated C.V. Preference is awarded to NCSA Members in assigning reviews, and acceptance of submissions is subject to editorial review.

To style your manuscript, please see "Submissions: Special Requirements of NCS Style." Online reviews require no title; instead, they are headed only by bibliographical information, using the format described in 11.1 of the Requirements ("Style for Review Headers"). Please avoid endnotes, if possible; however, if additional documentation is unavoidable, please adhere to the style described in the Requirements. Regrettably, illustrations cannot be accommodated for these brief reviews.

Online Essays

Nineteenth Century Studies hosts online resources that benefit by ongoing revision and updating. Typically these resources provide bibliographic or other kinds of reference resources beneficial to the profession. Submission and editorial procedures for these resources are identical to those for article-length submissions to the journal, with the exception that the resources can be updated and expanded with the editors’ assistance.
