The Edgar Wind Journal publishes interdisciplinary articles on the philosopher and cultural historian Edgar Wind and his themes of enquiry. Only manuscripts meeting the highest standards of scholarly quality, originality, and argumentative clarity will be accepted for publication.

There is no fixed format for the review, but please note these general instructions:

  • We encourage reviewers to apply strict criteria regarding the quality and thematic scope of submissions as well as their structure and language.
  • The Edgar Wind Journal accepts submissions in different lengths and formats (including theoretical articles, reviews, and commentaries). If the authors are aiming at a specific format, this should be reflected in the title and abstract. While we expect a majority of submissions to be between 4,000 and 8,000 words (including references), we do allow for exceptions if the length of an article is justified by its content. If this is not the case – i.e. if the article is unnecessarily long or too short – please comment on this in your review.
  • If the article has been submitted for inclusion in a special issue, it must clearly fall within the thematic scope of that special issue.
  • Please note that the Edgar Wind Journal does not allow for more than two rounds of review, with very few exceptions. This means that we may ask you to review a revised version of the article, but it is unlikely we will ask you to review a second revision.
  • The categories we employ are:

1. Accept submission: Use this category only in case no changes to content, structure, or language are required prior to publication. We expect that this will rarely be the case; this category is reserved for absolutely outstanding manuscripts.

2. Minor revisions required: Use this category if only minor revisions are required to transform this manuscript into a high-quality, publishable article. While this category does not guarantee publication, it indicates that publication is likely if the revision addresses the reviewers’ specific comments.

3. Major revisions required: Use this category if major revisions are required to transform this manuscript into a high-quality, publishable article.

4. Decline submission: Use this category for manuscripts that you do not expect to turn into high-quality, publishable articles even contingent on major revisions.

  • If you have already reviewed this article (or an earlier version) for another journal, please let us know.
  • Please note that the editors-in-chief reserve the right to veto the publication of an article even if all reviewers have recommended publication.
