As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.

The word limit for articles is between 6000 and 8000 words. Submissions should ideally be written using Word and should be emailed as an attachment to reviewofirishstudiesineurope@gmail.com. When submitting an article for consideration, your email should include a short biography (3-4 lines) which will be used for the ‘Contributors Page’. The articles must not have appeared elsewhere and must not be currently under consideration by another publisher.

The font used in articles is Calibri. For the main text, the font size is 12. Offset quotations are font size 11. Footnotes are font size 10.

Rather than adopting an in-text citation style, the journal uses footnotes. A full first reference is required. E.g. Ciaran Carson, Until Before After (Oldcastle: Gallery Press, 2010), 30. For a second reference to the same text, you should use a shortened format: Carson 14. We do not put ‘p.’ or ‘pp.’ before a page number.

An alphabetical list marked ‘Works Cited’ should be placed at the end of the article. Titles of monographs, edited collections, novels, collections of poetry, etcetera, are italicised. Titles of articles, short stories, individual poems, individual essays, etcetera, are put within single inverted commas. For the bibliography, you should reverse the name order (Surname, Christian name).

The format is as follows:
