The Journal of New Zealand Literature (JNZL) is the only international, fully peer-reviewed journal devoted to New Zealand literary studies.
Established in 1983 and published annually, JNZL is edited within the School of Arts at the University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand. JNZL carries scholarly and critical essays on all aspects of New Zealand literature and cultural studies. It also reviews books of critical interest in the field of New Zealand literary studies.
We welcome submissions on any aspect of New Zealand literature in English.
JNZL is calling for expressions of interest in a fully-funded Special Issue for 2016.
- Proposals must align with JNZL’s mandate to publish peer-reviewed scholarly work on New Zealand literature and cultural studies.
- Proposals need the majority approval of the International Advisory Board.
- The proposer will take responsibility for organising any related conference/symposium and for issuing relevant calls for papers.
- The proposer will take responsibility for assuring the peer-reviewed quality of the issue, and would be expected to involve the JNZL International Advisory Board in this process. Each submission requires at least two peer reports: at least one from an appropriate peer reviewer in the field, and at least one from a member of the JNZL International Advisory Board. (The editor of JNZL is available to assist with this process.)
- Once the content of a special issue has been peer reviewed and confirmed, the whole issue will be reviewed by a member of the JNZL International Advisory Board. This is with a view to assuring overall consistency and quality, and is especially important where a guest editor is themselves making a contribution to the issue.
- Special Issues come at no extra cost to subscribers. The 2016 Special Issue will be fully-funded by JNZL’s annual revenue-sharing contribution from JSTOR.
- Special Issues must appear within a calendar year of a proposal's provisional acceptance by the JNZL International Advisory Board.
- Fully-funded special issues are competitive and advertised internationally.
APPLICATIONS CLOSE ON 30 SEPT 2015.
