Pacific Coast Philology
Pacific Coast Philology, the journal of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association, publishes peer-reviewed essays of interest to scholars in the classical and modern languages, literatures, and cultures. PCP publishes one annual issue, which contains Articles and Book Reviews, as well as the Presidential Address, Forum, and Plenary Speech from the preceding year's conference. The journal comes to members by way of Logos Press, PCP's respected printer for over a decade. Members no longer receive a conference issue of the journal. Instead, the full conference program appears on this PAMLA website, and whenever possible, is distributed at the conference.
Scholars submitting essays for consideration must be members of PAMLA at the time of publication. Essays may be submitted any time throughout the year. The expected length for all essays is between 4,500 and 8,000 words. In preparing manuscripts, all contributors should follow the MLA Style Manual. Electronic submissions of essays in MS Word format are preferred, but submissions by mail are also accepted. Submissions undergo a double-blind review. Please include your name, affiliation, and contact information only on the cover sheet; please do not include in the essay any reference identifying the author. Submit electronic essays to General Editors Roswitha Burwick and Friederike von Schwerin-High at firstname.lastname@example.org. Non-electronic submissions should be sent in triplicate to Roswitha Burwick/Friederike von Schwerin-High, General Editors, Pacific Coast Philology, Department of German, 1030 Columbia Avenue, Scripps College, Claremont, CA 91711.
In the interest of making members' works more well known to each other and of informing a varied audience of their work, Pacific Coast Philology opened a book review section in the fall 2000 issue of the journal. Only members' works within the last three years are accepted for review, though they may be reviewed by non-members as well as members. If you have recently published a book that you would like to have the journal review, have your publisher send a review copy (by January 15 for publication in the fall issue) to Roswitha Burwick or Friederike von Schwerin-High at the address above. Reviewers are enlisted from among scholars of note in the book's area of expertise and may or may not be PAMLA members. Make inquiries to email@example.com.
