Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I submit a CFP?
A: Please see here:
If this is your first time posting, click on "Create a new account". It will ask for your email address. You will then be sent an email containing a "one-time" login link. Check your email and click on that link to open the website in your browser. You will now be logged in and can submit the CFP.
Q: How do I make revisions to a CFP I've posted?
A: Please see here:
You will be asked to login using your email address. Enter your email address and click "Log in". You will then be sent an email containing a "one-time" login link. Check your email and click on that link to open the website in your browser. You will now be logged in and can edit/update your existing CFPs or submit a new one.
Q: Can I subscribe to this site somehow?
A: Due to the volume of submissions, we no longer use email lists to distrubute CFPs.
RSS feeds are a fairly good replacement for email lists, however.
See here to subscribe to the RSS feed for all categories of CFPs
To subscribe to a subcategory, visit the subcategory page and click on the orange RSS button.
For example, for the category "Medieval", you would first navigate to https://call-for-papers.sas.upenn.edu/category/medieval. On the top of that page next to the heading "medieval" is a small orange RSS button. Click on that to access the RSS feed.
Q: I am unable to log in or to register a new account to submit a CFP. What can I do to fix this?
A: Clicking on the "one-time" login link sometimes displays a "link not valid" error message. This might have something to do with cookies or your browser configuration.
First, try clearing out the browser cache and then clicking on the "one-time" login link again.
If that doesn't work, copy/paste the "one-time" login link from your email into a different browser. You can also try opening the "one-time" login link on a different computer or device.
2020 Update: To combat malicious links, some email servers running Outlook will click the link for you before it arrives in your inbox. In these cases, you'll see "safelinks.protection.outlook.com" in the URL. By the time you see the login message, the link has already been clicked and is therefore invalid. For now, please use a non-Outlook email account to make submissions. Gmail for instance seems to still work.
