Open Call for Submissions
Solicited are articles, book reviews, and artist interviews directly speaking to the concerns, aesthetics, ethics, politics, forms, and methodologies of the literary, media, visual, or performing arts after 1960, though we will consider articles that examine relationships between the contemporary arts and the art of previous periods. Articles exploring new aesthetic theories and new techniques and forms, as well as interrelations between the contemporary arts, are particularly welcomed.
Articles accepted starting May 2014.
Last date for submissions is March 15, 2015.
Please send inquiries and/or submissions via email to
Subject line: “Submission: Open Call Issue”
Articles should be 6000-8000 words, excluding works-cited lists and translations, which should accompany foreign-language quotations. We do not consider articles that are simultaneously under review by other journals; an article found to have been simultaneously submitted elsewhere will not be published in ASAP/Journal even if it has already been accepted for publication by the editorial staff. Copyright for all articles remains with the Johns Hopkins University Press.
Manuscripts in languages other than English will be considered but must be accompanied by a detailed summary in English (generally of 1,000–1,500 words) and must be translated into English if they are recommended for publication. All content in the journal is anonymously peer reviewed by at least two referees. If the contribution includes any materials (e.g., quotations that exceed fair use, illustrations, charts, other graphics) that have been taken from another source, the author must obtain written permission to reproduce them in print and electronic formats and assume all reprinting costs.
Submissions should be prepared in accordance with the Chicago Manual of Style. Authors’ names should not appear on manuscripts; instead, a cover sheet, with the author’s name and address and the title of the article, should serve as the first pages of each manuscript file. Authors should not refer to themselves in the first person in the submitted text or notes if such references would identify them.
