The Eugene O’Neill Review publishes substantial and authoritative peer-reviewed presentations of new research, aimed primarily at a community of scholars who have a keen interest and background in O’Neill’s life and writings. Studies might focus on theatrical or literary history, including biography, or on critical interpretation. Consideration will be given to topics closely related, such as other figures in the Provincetown Players or other collaborators with O’Neill. We give special attention to publishing little-known or rediscovered documents, with appropriate contextualizing. Reports of newly opened or augmented archival resources are also welcome, as are book and performance reviews that trace the legacy of O’Neill’s work.

The Eugene O’Neill Review is the official academic journal of the Eugene O’Neill Society, an organization of scholars, theater professionals, and enthusiasts, which began meeting in 1978.

If you would like to submit an article to The Eugene O’Neill Review, please visit and create an author profile. The online system will guide you through the steps to upload your article for submission to the editorial office.

While critical and historical essays of the standard length (5000–8000 words) will remain the standard fare, consideration will also be given to shorter writings (notes, letters) and to longer works when the length seems clearly justified by the matter. Conference talks, however well-written, should be reconfigured for a reading public. Reviews of about 800 words should speak to what is important to remember about a book or performance. We will give special attention to publishing little-known or rediscovered documents, with appropriate contextualizing. Reports of newly opened archival resources are also welcome. All submissions should adhere to the guideline of the Chicago Manual of Style. Any pictures submitted need to be 300 dpi or higher. Authors are responsible for securing permission to use pictures or any text quoted beyond "fair use."

Submissions should be accompanied by an Abstract of up to 150 words. Abstract Guidelines may be found here.
