Italian American Review
The Italian American Review (IAR) is accepting submissions of articles. Authors wishing to have an article manuscript considered for publication should email the following three items in Microsoft Word format as attachments to both the editor, David Aliano (email@example.com) and the managing editor, Rosangela Briscese (firstname.lastname@example.org):
A copy of the manuscript, including page headers with the author's name throughout
A copy of the manuscript without any author identification--no title page, no header
An article abstract
Articles should be around twenty-five/thirty pages (6,250-8,000 words) in length, double-spaced, not including bibliography and endnotes. The IAR follows the 17th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style and uses the Chicago Style author-date system for citations, with authors' full names included in the Works Cited list. For example:
In-text citation: (Doniger 1999, 65)
Works Cited list: Doniger, Wendy. 1999. Splitting the difference. Chicago: University of Chicago Press.
Article manuscripts are acknowledged on receipt and are evaluated first by the IAR editor, and then, if appropriate for the IAR, unidentified manuscripts are sent to two qualified anonymous referees for review. Authors are notified as soon as 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. When a manuscript is submitted to the IAR, it should not have been published elsewhere nor be under consideration by any other journal.
The journal will occasionally feature a "Notes and Documents" section for shorter works such as biographical sketches, obituaries, reproductions of historical documents, etc. These items should generally be no more than six pages (1,500 words) in length.
