Dear Subscribers,

Re: should journals give more information to prospective authors?

I am an editorial assistant for two academic journals, and I've been doing it for seven years. I always acknowledge receipt of the MS - after asking the editor if it's something they'd like to review - and then give the authors a timeline of when to expect the peer reviews to be back, after which we will give them our editorial decision. This has worked well for us for the most part.

should journals give more information to prospective authors?


Below is a link to an article on the Scholarly Kitchen blog by Jerry Jacobs entitled "Author Friendly Journal websites."  Jacobs contents that journal publishers could assit authors who are interested in submitting an article by giving them more information about how long their peer review process usually takes and the time from acceptance to publication.  The commentators on the article aren't so sure that this information will be transparent and meaningful. 

Re: Question of the Month: Recent Trends in the Study of National Awakening in East-Central Europe

Dear Alexander,

If I can summarize the question as follows: "What's new in studies challenging the "heroic national awakening narrative" of 19th-century CEE people", what first comes into my mind are three directions.

One more general: 1) internationalization of study, contributing to a deeper understanding of cultural trends are transnational role models. Locus of this direction is the platform of the Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe - ernie.uva.nl, also giving a new kick to comparative studies with tools of Digital Humanities.
