Theatre Survey

Mission

Theatre Survey is chartered by the American Society for Theatre Research as a theatre history journal. Its theatrical and historical orientations are both broadly conceived. Performance-centered studies are welcome from all points across all historical, cultural, and methodological spectra, as are historiographic studies.

Editorial Policy and Practices

Articles should be submitted electronically (Microsoft Word document), and should include a brief abstract of the essay (ca. 250 words). Manuscripts of twenty-five to forty pages in length, standard font (e.g. Times New Roman), paginated lower center, and double-spaced throughout, including endnotes, should be prepared according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 14th ed. Articles submitted to Re: Sources should be ten to twenty pages in length. Titles of publications cited should be italicized and bold fonts avoided. Contributors are responsible for obtaining permission and paying costs to reproduce any materials, including illustrations, for which they do not hold the copyright. To secure a blind reading, the title of the essay, author’s name and contact information should appear on a separate cover sheet, with the title repeated on the first page of text. Articles can be submitted to Theatre Survey through the following website: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/theatresurvey

If you request colour figures in the printed version, you will be contacted by CCC-Rightslink who are acting on our behalf to collect Author Charges. Please follow their instructions in order to avoid any delay in the publication of your article.

Theatre Survey welcomes submissions from authors who have published with us previously. However, in the interest of ensuring that we can serve a wide and diverse community of scholars, we ask authors to wait a minimum of three years between the publication date of a full-length article and the submission of a new piece. The primary exception to this policy would be submission for a special issue aligned with the author's research area that is announced within this three year window. This policy does not apply to book reviews.
