Please let us know when the deposit is made so that we can update our records.

  • Author resources

    The Yearbook of Comparitive Literature publishes scholarly articles on aspects of literature consistent with its mission statement. Original submissions should be 15-25 double-spaced typewritten pages in length. The author's name should appear only in the cover letter and should be removed from the submission.

    Once accepted for publication, manuscripts should meet the following criteria:

      1. Manuscripts should conform to the most current edition of the MLA Handbook style.
      2. Page references should be given in parentheses in the body of the text.
      3. Do not use endnotes or footnotes for bibliographical information.

    In citing the complete reference in the "Works Cited" section, use the standard format for bibliographies, according to the MLA Handbook. Be sure to include all of the following information: author, full title, series if applicable, translators/editors, place of publication and name of the publisher, year of publication, and page numbers (for journal articles, pieces in anthologies, and book chapters).

    At the end of the manuscript, type your academic affiliation flush with the right margin. Send us one paper copy of your article and one disk copy, preferably PC-formatted, in a monospaced font (such as Courier), and left-justified.
