Submission Guidelines

Preparation of Copy
All manuscripts should be in the English language. All articles deemed appropriate for RALS are sent for anonymous peer review. A separate title page should include the title of the article and the author's name, affiliation (if appropriate), address, phone number, and e-mail address. An author should not include his or her name on the manuscript; all internal identifying references and notes should be masked for the review process. Manuscripts should be typed double-spaced, with notes and a list of works cited (also double- spaced) following the text. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the new MLA style, with internal citation wherever possible. Necessary notes should be numbered consecutively throughout the article, and note numbers in endnotes must correspond to the note numbers in the text. A "Works Cited" list must accompany all manuscripts. Please number the manuscript pages consecutively.

Submission of Manuscripts
Please send three copies of the manuscript to Jackson R. Bryer, Resources for American Literary Study, Department of English, 3101 Susquehanna Hall, University of Maryland, College Park, MD, 20742, USA. If you wish to have your manuscript returned, please include a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope (USA only). Electronic submissions may be sent as e-mail attachments (to jbryer@umd.edu). The following formats, listed in order of preference, will be accepted: Microsoft Word 6.0 or higher (.doc), rich text format (.rtf), or simple text (.txt). Please check for and eliminate all viruses before sending. (Note: All accepted articles must be available in electronic format.) The editors cannot review or accept articles that have been previously published or are under consideration at any other journal or publisher.
