Guidelines for guest-edited volumes of PEGS

The editors are pleased to invite proposals for guest-edited volumes. Guest-edited volumes should

offer a series of articles that relate to each other clearly, which means in most cases that the proposed volume will focus on an author, theme, specific debate, methodological approach or theoretical issue,

be compatible with the aims and mission of the English Goethe Society and the topical focus of PEGS,

not exceed the length normally allotted to one issue of PEGS,

correspond to the PEGS style sheet.

Proposals for guest-edited volumes should be sent by email to the editors, Kevin Hilliard (, Astrid Köhler ( and W. Daniel Wilson (

Proposals will be read and discussed by all three editors and, if deemed necessary, an outside expert in the field that constitutes the focus of the proposed volume. Decisions will be made within 2 months of the proposal being received. The guest editor or editors shall be responsible for assembling and editing the volume, which should be submitted to the PEGS editors in its final form. Acceptance of a proposal does not constitute acceptance of the finished volume, which will be subject to normal editorial review after submission. Guest-edited volumes are normally published one year after submission of the final manuscript.
