Call for Papers

CROSSINGS: ULAB JOURNAL OF ENGLISH STUDIES (ISSN 2071-1107) is inviting scholarly articles for its Volume 9 to be published in July 2018.

Deadline for submission (extended): February 28, 2018

To reflect a diversity of interests, contributions are not confined to any particular theme; however, submissions should be broadly of interest to those concerned with the study of language and literature.

We also invite book reviews for this issue. Please contact the editors in advance with details of the book you wish to review.

Contributions should not have been previously published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Each contribution is submitted to at least one reader on a panel of reviewers and only those articles recommended by the reviewer will be accepted for publication. However, the final decision rests with the Editorial Board. Acceptance letters will be provided on request after the Editorial Board’s final approval. 

All submissions must be in English and should follow the latest MLA (for literature) or APA (for language) style for formatting. Articles should be 3000 to 6000 words long, although this limit may be reconsidered, at the discretion of the Editorial Board, for articles that are exceptional in quality or subject matter. All papers must be professionally edited before submission. Papers requiring extensive editing after acceptance by reviewers will be rejected by the Editorial Board.

Manuscripts must be double spaced in 12 point Times New Roman font and must include abstract, text, tables, figure captions, and references in a single .doc or .docx file. American spelling should be used. A short abstract (150–200 words) should accompany the article with relevant keywords. Endnotes and footnotes are strongly discouraged. Incorporate all notes into the text or include under a subheading (Notes) before the Works Cited or References page.

When submitting your work, please include your full name, institution’s name, designation, email address, phone number, and the title of the essay on the cover page. Please mail two hard copies to the address below and email a soft copy of your article to
