Editorial Policy

We publish in English the best and most timely articles regarding the study of Finnish and Finnish-American topics from interdisciplinary and traditional perspectives. We actively seek articles and conference proceeds from our colleagues in these various disciplines concerned with Finnish Studies in its broad context and from institutions across the globe.

We read and publish both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts for our open issues. We also publish themed issues.

We use a double-blind review process to ensure the quality of the articles we publish. If you would like to serve as a reviewer, send your CV and your request to serve by email to one or both of the editors listed above.

We use the Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition).

We publish reviews of books of academic and literary interest to our readership. If you wish to submit a book review, send it directly to our book review editor at the email address listed above.
