Submissions should be in English (spelling may be either British or American) and should conform to the latest version of the MLA style. In order to undergo masked (double blind) peer-review, scholarly articles should be submitted in the following way: the authorís contact information and a brief bio should appear in the body of the e-mail, while the Word attachment should contain no identifying information.

We do not accept submissions that are under consideration elsewhere. Upon publication, authors will retain copyright. However, we do request that 1) authors notify the editors that the piece (or its revised/expanded version) will be published elsewhere and that 2) a reference be made to UpStage as the initial publication venue.

Please allow 4 months for the review process.
