Georgia Philological Association - JGPA

Journal of the Georgia Philological Association

JGPA currently publishes on a biennial basis. Special consideration is given to expanded/revised versions of papers presented at the annual meeting held in the spring of each year, but submissions are accepted from non-presenters as well; if submissions are accepted for publication, GPA membership is a prerequisite for final publication of all articles.  Manuscripts should be submitted in duplicate electronically as Word documents and all editorial correspondence sent to the following address:

    Kathy Whitaker, Editor-in-Chief
    The Journal of the Georgia Philological Association
    whitaker@ega.edu

Manuscripts should run no more than 8000 words and should conform to the latest MLA (7th ed.) style guidelines.  Use parenthetical references and a list of Works Cited; avoid discursive footnotes, and keep commentary and bibliographic endnotes, if necessary, to a minimum.  Submission of a manuscript indicates that the article is not being considered nor has been published elsewhere.  Manuscripts should also be free of internal reference to the author’s identity; the writer’s name should appear only on the cover letter, and other references are removed before manuscripts are screened by the editors.  Manuscripts judged by the editors to be appropriate for the journal are then submitted to blind review by external readers and/or members of the Editorial Board.  The editor maintains responsibility for final selection.  Ordinarily decisions will be made within three months of submission.

To date, four volumes of JGPA have been published. JGPA is indexed in the MLA International Bibliography and EBSCOhost Research Databases.
Members of GPA receive a copy of the journal. Annual subscription rates are $60 for institutions and libraries and $20 for non-member individuals.
