Analyses/Rereadings/Theories: A Journal Devoted to Literature, Film and Theatre

Redaktor naczelny:
Piotr Spyra

Analyses/Rereadings/Theories (A/R/T Journal) is a peer-reviewed journal that has been created with a view to providing a forum for analyzing and discussing issues of immediate relevance for contemporary literary and cultural studies.

The journal espouses the belief that academic criticism should be readily accessible worldwide. In view of this fact, each of the issues will be published online and will be available for download, free of charge. We hope that such a solution will present an exciting opportunity to respond to the contributions, and will enrich our understanding of the problems tackled in the journal.

Subsequent issues will be advertised on this website.

We will be happy to receive and publish articles, reviews and interviews alike.

Publication Process

Publishing an article in our journal includes the stages described below:

1) Once you submit your article you will receive a reply to your e-mail within 1 week. If we fail to answer in time, we kindly request that you resubmit your article.

2) The submissions will first be read by the members of the editorial board, as well as by advisory board. The contributions that receive preliminary approval will then be edited. Any instance of a rejection of an article will be consulted with at least two members of the advisory board.

3) The papers will then be edited by the volume editors. Once you receive an e-mail with suggested corrections you will be given 3 weeks to send the article back to us. The contribution will then be sent to the reviewers.

4) Once your contribution has been reviewed, you will be informed about whether your article is to be published or not. Should the article require any corrections or alterations, you will be given 2 weeks to incorporate them and resubmit the article.

5) Volume editors will prepare the final version of an issue, which will then be proof-read and published.

We will inform you about the exact dates for specific issues via e-mail. Should any problems occur, we will approach your case individually.
