Submission Guidelines

OPEN WORDS: Access and English Studies, an online, peer-reviewed journal, published by Pearson, accepts manuscripts year-round and is interested in theory, critique, qualitative or quantitative studies, narrative, history, or pedagogical practice.

Prospective contributors should prepare manuscripts in MLA or APA style with all identifying references to the authors deleted. Submissions should include a cover page, giving the name, address, and institutional affiliation of the author. We do consider longer works, but submissions should try to stay within 6000-7000 words. We will acknowledge receipt of submissions immediately and inform contributors of the status in approximately 8-12 weeks.

Submit manuscripts in digital format (Microsoft Word) via email addressed to all co-editors of Open Words:
