Jour­nal of Montgomery stud­ies launches

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

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.
