Editorial Policy

We publish in English the best and most timely articles regarding the study of Finnish and Finnish diaspora topics. We welcome submissions from our colleagues in all disciplines concerned with Finnish Studies in its broad context and from institutions around the globe.

We read and publish both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts for our open issues.
We sometimes publish theme 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).
