At this stage the journal will accept paper proposals, of between 1,000 to 2,000 words sent by email to and which the editors will carefully consider. The journal will not consider paper proposals submitted by PhD candidates. Each proposal should include a clear statement of the paper's thesis, its relation to the existing literature, and an illustration of the methods and sources utilized in the paper. If the author’s proposal is of interest to the editorial team, the author will be invited to submit a full article, or a draft if available. Similarly, no unsolicited full review essays will be considered without submitting an initial proposal to the review essay editor.
