Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies (NCGS) is published three times a year—spring, fall and a specially-themed summer issue—and accepts both scholarly articles and book reviews year-round. We welcome articles of 5,000-8,000 words on gender studies and British literature, art, and culture during the long nineteenth century. Submissions should conform to the most recent MLA Handbook and must include a brief biographical note which will be posted if accepted for publication. Submissions must not have been previously published, in whole or in part, either in print or online. Please send an electronic version of your submission in Word to both: Stacey Floyd ( and Melissa Purdue ( To facilitate the double-blind peer review process, please send two files—one with your article absent of all identifying information and another with your brief biographical note.
