EARLY MODERN LITERARY STUDIES:
A JOURNAL OF SIXTEENTH- AND SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY ENGLISH LITERATURE
Announcing Early Modern Literary Studies, a refereed journal in electronic form
which intends to serve both as a formal arena for scholarly discussion and as
an academic resource for researchers in the area. Articles in EMLS will
examine English literature, literary culture, and language during the sixteenth
and seventeenth centuries from a variety of perspectives; well- considered
responses to published papers will also be published as part of a Readers'
Forum. Reviews in EMLS will evaluate recent work in the area as well as
academic tools of interest to scholars in the field. Our Internet site will
also gather and maintain links to useful on-line resources.
EMLS (ISSN 1201-2459) will be published three times a year for the on-line
academic community by the University of British Columbia's English Department,
with the support of the University's Library and Arts Computing Centre.
Our first issue will appear in Spring 1995.
EMLS will be available free of charge in hypertextual format on the World Wide
It will also be available in ASCII format for retrieval using GOPHER at
Our site on the World Wide Web will be active, though still under construction,
as of December 1, 1994.
The EMLS Editorial Group is representative of the on-line academic community as
a whole and includes scholars with wide- ranging interests and experience, from
junior to well-established senior academics.
