All articles submitted to Symbiosis are peer-reviewed by internationally recognised authorities in the field. Articles are sent to two reviewers and the editors make decisions about publication based on their recommendations. We aim to inform authors of our decision within 8 weeks of receipt of the submission.

Contributions of 6,000 to 8,000 words are welcome on all aspects of literary exchange between the British Isles and North America. Submissions should be double spaced throughout, prepared in accordance with the journal style sheet, and addressed or sent as email attachments to the editors. 

We also welcome proposals for special issues on any aspect of Transatlantic literary exchange in English.

Articles chosen for publication must then be supplied in Word in accordance with the journal Style Sheet.
