Content

Heliotropia considers a wide range of contributions for publication. The preferred languages of publication are English and Italian. The chief unifying criterion for acceptance of a piece is its pertinence to the study of Boccaccio's life and works. Note that preference is given to submissions that are innovative, whether in scope or approach. Especially welcome are studies that are interdisciplinary in nature. Authors implicitly take responsibility for obtaining reproduction permission of non-original materials and must submit proof of such permission together with the final version of their essay. Reviews submitted for publication are a valuable asset to the community of Boccaccio scholars as well. Please note, however, that we do not accept self-reviews or the unwarranted promotion of friends and colleagues. Authors or publishers who would like to have a book reviewed may submit one copy to the address listed below. It will then be listed in the books received list but will not be returned.

Form

Articles may range in length from approximately 1300 to 5000 words; notes and reviews from 500 to 2000. Potential authors should download the stylesheet from the link to the left.

Submissions for publication in Heliotropia may be made electronically by attachment (documents in Word or RTF only) to papio@hfa.umass.edu.

Books Received

Heliotropia accepts for review books written in major European languages that contain a substantial amount of content related to Boccaccio and/or fourteenth-century Italy.

    About the Journal

    Heliotropia is a peer-reviewed journal that was created to provide a widely and readily available forum for research and interpretation to an international community of Boccaccio scholars. Its role, first and foremost, is to promote and disseminate recent scholarship in a form that is both efficiently accessible and cost-free. Being uninhibited by the conventional constraints of academic publishing, the online journal enjoys the advantages of relatively brief turnaround times, flexibility in the length and nature of submissions and the ability to present a variety of media according to the needs of its authors.

    Principal characteristics

    The exegetic scope of the journal is vast. Because our readers' interests are as varied as their approaches to Boccaccio's life and works, all substantial scholarly contributions are considered for publication. Consequently, the journal hosts the entire gamut of interpretive perspectives, from rigorous philological and historical studies to highly theoretical and wide-ranging comparative inquiries.

    Contributions

    Heliotropia invites contributions from scholars in all fields of academic endeavor. Each submission is then sent, without the name of its author, to two anonymous readers who judge the quality of the article's content. Note that already published work will not be accepted and that authors whose submissions pass this initial stage of evaluation may then be requested to make further modifications before their work is published in the journal. Thorough peer-review is an essential component of the journal's success as well as the key to providing consistently high quality scholarship. Authors retain all rights to their intellectual property, but the editor may agree to reprints if requested. All subsequent publication in print should be accompanied by proper acknowledgment.
