The Burney Journal

The Burney Journal is now accepting submissions for volume 17, to be published in late 2020, and for subsequent issues to be published annually.  A peer-reviewed publication of the Burney Society, The Burney Journal is available in print and indexed online by EBSCO Host.


The Burney Journal is dedicated to the study of the works of the Burney family, especially Frances Burney d’Arblay, her life, her contemporaries, and her times. This annual, interdisciplinary publication invites submissions on all aspects of the Burneys’ lives and careers, in a variety of disciplines including literature, history, art, music, and politics. The aims of the journal center on supporting and advocating for eighteenth-century studies broadly, and particularly author studies, women's studies, and cultural studies. 


Submissions for volume 17 are due September 15, 2020, and manuscripts must be submitted electronically directly to the editors (Marilyn Francus [] and Hilary Havens []). We accept submissions that vary in length from 5,000 to 7,500 words; for shorter or longer submissions, please contact the editors.  Submissions must follow MLA guidelines and the journal style sheet:

New scholars, and authors whose work is in the “idea” stage, are welcomed to contact the editors if they would like guidance prior to submission.
