Submission Guidelines

Polish American Studies

The editors welcome scholarship including articles, edited documents, bibliographies and related materials dealing with all aspects of the history and culture of Poles in the Western Hemisphere. They particularly welcome contributions that place the Polish experience in historical and comparative perspective by examining its relationship to other ethnic experiences.

Manuscripts are evaluated based on their relevance to the mission of the journal; the clarity of the thesis, presentation and conclusions; the depth of research based upon the nature of the sources cited; and whether the manuscript adds something new to the scholarly literature on the topic. The journal employs a "double-blind" review process with each submission being read by a minimum of two reviewers, and usually three. Comments of the reviewers are summarized by the editors and provided to the authors.

Contributions from any discipline in the humanities and social sciences are welcome. Manuscripts or inquiries should be submitted in Microsoft Word via e-mail attachment to the editor at kirchmanna@easternct.edu. Contributors whose first language is not English should have their work reviewed for clarity prior to submission; however, the journal does provide a free copyediting service for accepted manuscripts in need of some linguistic revision.

Books for review (English language) should be sent to Mary Patrice Erdmans (Department of Sociology, 10900 Euclid Avenue, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH 44106) or Anna Mazurkiewicz (Polish language; University of Gdańsk, Faculty of History, ul. Wita Stwosza 55, 80-952 Gdańsk, Poland). Books may be submitted by publishers or authors. Submission is no guarantee that books will be reviewed and books will not be returned.
