Nineteenth Century Studies
is the interdisciplinary journal of the Nineteenth Century Studies Association. The journal publishes studies of interest to scholars of the nineteenth century in all humanistic fields. The journal welcomes submissions that cross disciplinary and national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century. Successful submissions tend to be both deeply researched in their particular fields and sufficiently wide-ranging to engage readers whose main research interests lie in other areas.

Although contributors most frequently write on American, British, and Continental topics, the journal places no geographical limitations on potential contributions. Topics include, but are not limited to, literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences.

The Nineteenth Century Studies Association (NCSA), formerly known as the Southeastern Nineteenth Century Studies Association, is an interdisciplinary association for the study of nineteenth-century world cultures. Founded in 1979 as a forum to encourage interdisciplinary exchange, the membership has grown to include scholars whose disciplinary focus ranges from art, architecture, and literature to religious, scientific, and legal writing, to social, political, and economic debate.

The expected length of feature essays ranges between 6,000 and 10,000 words, including notes. Longer essays may be acceptable, although very long submissions will be scrutinized for excess baggage.

Review essays typically discuss at least three texts, usually several more. They should therefore be no shorter than about 2,500 words and can run longer, depending on the number of publications discussed. Unusually long review contributions should be cleared with the editor. Reviews published online typically deal with a single text and average 500–1000 words.
