*Renaissance Forum* is an electronic interdisciplinary refereed journal
specialising in early-modern English literary and historical scholarship
and in the critical methodologies of these fields. The journal is
published biannually by an editorial board based in the Departments of
English and History at the University of Hull (Robin Headlam Wells,
Glenn Burgess, Lorna Hutson and Rowland Wymer).
Contributions of two main kinds are invited: scholarly articles of up to
6,000 words on any aspect of early modern English literature and/or
history; and considered responses of up to 4,000 words to articles
already published in *Renaissance Forum*. Submissions are read by at
least two specialist referees. Articles are adjudicated on the basis of
scholarly merit, and no particular theoretical position is privileged,
though most work published in *Renaissance Forum* will either be
historical or bring together the disciplines of literature and history.
Copy should be in standard English spelling and punctuation (Modern
Humanities Research Association Stylebook) and should follow
*Renaissance Forum* guidelines for format. These may be found at the
journals website: <http://www.hull.ac.uk/renforum/>. Submissions may be
