Please omit any personal information in the file of your paper and make sure the file properties do not show your name.

Deadline for submission: 31 October 2019.

All the texts submitted must follow SEDERI’s style sheet.

Only original research is published by SEDERI. Therefore, we do not consider research pieces that have been published elsewhere (either in print or online) or are under simultaneous consideration with another publisher; translations are not considered either.

Recommended length of contributions:

  • Articles: 5,000–8,000 words (including footnotes and references).
  • Notes: 2,000–3,500 words (including footnotes and references).Notes should be pieces of research focusing on a specific point, not needing a broad theoretical or contextual elaboration.
  • Reviews: 1,000–1,500 words. Books, plays, or films reviewed should have been released in the last two years.
  • Performance reviews: SEDERI collaborates with www.ReviewingShakespeare.com. Reviews about Shakespearean performances submitted for publication to SEDERI will be also sent to www.ReviewingShakespeare.com, who will decide on their suitability for publication on their webpage. Inversely, a selection of reviews of Spanish and Portuguese productions of Shakespeare’s plays submitted directly to the webpage will be published in SEDERI.

All the submitted articles and notes should include an abstract and 5 keywords.

  • ŸThe abstract (max. 100 words) should convey the essential aspects of your research.
  • ŸThe 5 keywords (or phrases) are essential to locate your essay in connection with specific topics, authors, periods, and approaches. Avoid being too broad or too narrow.
  • Abstracts and keywords will be published in English, Spanish and Portuguese. If none of these is your native language, please let us know, and we’ll translate them for you.

 

Originality and copyright policy

Only original research is published by SEDERI. Therefore, we do not consider research pieces that have been published elsewhere (either in print or online) or are under simultaneous consideration with another publisher; translations are not considered either.

Authors will be asked to sign a declaration stating that their contributions have not been previously published, in whole or in part, and do not infringe the copyright or property right of another journal, author or publisher.

Permission for publication of copyrighted material (pictures, photographs, etc.) should be obtained by the author.
