Submission Guidelines

Submit manuscripts online at Our response time is generally six to eight months. Do not submit previously published articles without the permission of the editors. Do not simultaneously offer your article to another publication. All lines should be double-spaced (including lines in the notes), with 1.5-inch left and right margins. Articles should be 8,000–12,000 words. To maintain anonymity in the review process, put names, affiliations, and mailing addresses, along with the article’s title and abstract, on a separate title page. Citations to an author's own works should be made in a way that does not compromise anonymity. GLQ uses The Chicago Manual of Style, seventeenth edition, as its main reference. Articles use a reference list and in-text author-date citations for documentation. Follow Chicago, chapter 15, for the form of all citations. Send correspondence to When preparing an article for submission, please refer to the journal's style guide.

GLQ does not accept unsolicited book or film/video reviews. Reviews are edited in cooperation with the GL/Q Caucus for the Modern Languages, an affiliate organization of the MLA.
