Southern Studies:  An Interdisciplinary Journal of the South is a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year from the Southern Studies Institute.  The Department of Criminal Justice, History, and Social Sciences at Northwestern State University houses the institute.

Two copies of previously unpublished manuscripts should be sent to Editor, Southern Studies, 301 Kyser Hall, Northwestern State University, Natchitoches, LA 71497.  All manuscripts must be carefully edited before submission, double-spaced, printed on 8 ½ X 11 in. paper.  Along with the hard copy, the saved Microsoft Word (preferably) digital file should be submitted electronically, via e-mail or CD.  Notes should be placed at the end of the article.  It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that manuscripts conform to the guidelines published in The Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition) or to guidelines published by the Modern Language Association.  Because articles are evaluated anonymously, the author’s name should appear only on the title page of the manuscript.  Manuscripts may also be sent electronically to the editor’s e-mail address ( or to the Southern Studies Institute (
