Journal of Montgomery studies launches
The L.M. Montgomery Institute and UPEI’s Robertson Library have launched the Journal of L.M. Montgomery Studies.
The open-access journal is the only journal dedicated to the famous author.
Montgomery is the author of “Anne of Green Gables’’ among 19 other novels, as well as hundreds of short stories and poems. She also composed letters, journals and scrapbooks.
The Journal of L.M. Montgomery Studies is a refereed, open-access digital space with a mandate to publish intriguing, highly original, rigorously researched scholarship on all aspects of Montgomery’s life, influences, creative work and legacy.
The journal’s scope is interdisciplinary and international and is aimed at Montgomery scholars and the broad community of Montgomery enthusiasts.
The journal is the official scholarly publication of the institute at UPEI. The institute management committee establishes the journal’s focus and scope and appoints the editorial board.
It has a continuous publication schedule and accepts submissions year-round. Articles, as well as video, digital projects, creative writing and other innovative work, will be published online and will be available on the journal’s website.
Hard copies of a series of articles, such as those associated with biennial conferences, will periodically be made available for purchase via print and on demand.
Kate Scarth, chairwoman of the L.M. Montgomery Studies and an assistant professor, is the editor of the journal studies. Her co-editor is Emily Woster, visiting scholar and a professor in the Department of English, Linguistics and Writing Studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth.
