Editorial Policy

It has been our editorial policy since our first issue in 1980 to publish occasional articles, book reviews, illustrations and short news items relating to the works of James Joyce. The majority of our book reviews are commissioned by the editors but we are prepared to consider unsolicited material and suggestions. Review copies of books from publishers, illustrations, advance publicity or news reports of conferences, lectures, film, theatre and artistic events, brief letters and other material relating to Joyce continue to be especially welcome.

Notes for Reviewers

The normal length for reviews of single books is 800 words. Main articles are usually of around 2,000 words. Reviews are due in by the following deadlines:

  • 1st December for publication in the February issue
  • 1st April for publication in the June issue
  • 1st August for publication in the October issue

Please send your contribution in hard copy on disc and/or as a Word Document. It is especially important to include at the head of your review full information about the book you are reviewing . This should be included on the slip provided or else typed clearly at the top of your review in the following form:

Author's name

Book Title

Place

Publisher Date

Pages

ISBN (cloth) (paper)

Please contact the publisher of the book you are reviewing if your information on the book is incomplete. At the end of your review you should type your name in the exact form you would like it to appear in the Broadsheet and a brief note stating your present academic affiliation and/or a recent or forthcoming publication as appropriate. Text received is normally edited to conform to house style and length. We use single inverted commas for speech and quotation. We do not use footnotes or endnotes for scholarly citation but brief parenthetical citations are usable in certain cases. If in doubt about any matters of presentation please consult a recent copy of the Broadsheet. Reviewers would normally be supplied with a review copy of the book on which they are writing which they may keep. Contributors receive a publisher's proof of their contribution immediately prior to publication and three copies of the Broadsheet in which their review appears.
