Exploring Irish life and culture

New Hibernia Review

What is New Hibernia Review?

New Hibernia Review, a multidisciplinary journal of Irish Studies, is the cornerstone of the Center for Irish Studies at the University of St. Thomas.

The journal offers plainly argued writing on Irish life and culture for scholar and lay reader alike. It actively seeks to present a variety of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives, as well as traditional literary and historical concerns of Irish Studies. Each issue of New Hibernia Review includes articles from a range of disciplines, especially literature and history. Each issue also includes an opening memoir or informal essay, a suite of new poems from an Irish poet and book reviews.

  • Preparation, Style and Length

    We accept submissions by e-mail attachment, but be sure to include your mailing address in the message. The contributor's name should appear on a separate title sheet. Double-spacing is mandatory. For publication, we conform to the Chicago Manual of Style. However, we will happily consider submissions that employ MLA Style Sheet.

    We have no firm rules on preferred length. Most articles that appear in New Hibernia Review arrive as double-spaced and 20 to 30 pages in length, or around 6,000 to 7,000 words. However, we have varied--in both directions--from this norm. It is best to consult previous issues of the journal via ProjectMuse or in print prior to submission.

    Decision Cycle, Editorial Practice and Author’s Proofs

    Submissions are promptly acknowledged, recorded and forwarded anonymously to external readers. We usually respond within two months; if the process extends to more than three months, feel free to query us. An essay will usually appear within one year of acceptance. If you wish to withdraw your essay from consideration, please notify the editors.

    Contributors should expect that their essays will be judiciously copyedited so as to give each issue a harmony of usage and mechanics. The editors will prefer American usage and conventions to British and Irish forms.

    Uncorrected proofs will be sent to you approximately four weeks before publication, by PDF attachment when feasible. You should give these prompt attention and provide the editors with corrections. Extensive revision will not be possible at that stage, however.
