Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature welcomes the submission of Articles, Notes, Archives, and Innovations essays on women’s literature in all time periods and places, including foreign-language literatures, and in every genre—poetry, prose, drama, essays, diaries, memoirs, journalism, and criticism. While submissions need not be exclusively concerned with female writers, the focus must be on women and writing, explicating the specific links between the woman writer and her work. Tulsa Studies particularly encourages work in feminist critical and literary theory.

Articles must place the writer and her work in some larger literary, historical, political, or social framework and argue a thesis that encompasses more than a reading of a single text or several texts by a single author. Articles should be 6,000-9,000 words, excluding endnotes. Please also send an abstract of no more than 100-200 words. Notes can be up to 4,000 words and need to present 1) new, factual material concerning a writer or her work; or 2) illuminate a problem of textual interpretation based on factual bibliographical or biographical information. Archives essays should be presented as bibliographies, descriptions of particular archives, or narratives of archival research. They should be limited to 1,500-3,000 words (for further information, see p. 144 of Vol. 5, No. 1, and pp. 213-14 of Vol. 25, No. 2). Innovations essays are descriptions of new approaches to the study of women’s writing, such as digital humanities projects, or reflections on the effects of such projects on the field; they are approximately 2,000-5,000 words (see pp. 214-15 of Vol. 25, No. 2). Archives and Innovations essays usually are not subjected to peer review but are vetted directly by the editorial staff. Tulsa Studies also publishes Book Reviews, which are requested by the Book Review Editor, and Review Essays, which are commissioned by the Editor.

All submissions must use endnotes that conform to the most recent edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. Contributors are responsible for providing complete and accurate bibliographical documentation. All submissions must be in English; foreign-language quotations will be printed with accompanying English-language translations provided by the author. Submissions are given anonymous review. Contributors’ names should not appear on manuscripts (but rather on a cover letter and abstract); authors may speak in the first person but should not identify themselves by name in the text of the essay or in the accompanying notes. All submissions to Tulsa Studies that meet the criteria detailed above will receive one or two readings by members of the Editorial Board or specialist readers and a reading by the Editor. Final decisions for publication rest with the Editor.

Tulsa Studies requests that electronic submissions be made as Microsoft Word attachments and sent to Please include contact information in a cover letter or email. An abstract should be sent as a separate document. If preferred, an original and three copies of a paper manuscript may be submitted with a self-addressed envelope bearing postage sufficient for the return of one copy of the manuscript (U. S. postage only; manuscripts to international addresses cannot be returned). Address submissions to Editor, Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature, 800 S. Tucker Drive, Tulsa, OK 74104.

Tulsa Studies does not consider submissions that have been published or are under consideration elsewhere. The University of Tulsa holds copyright on all published materials.
