Variants 15: Call for Submissions

Dear Colleagues,

As the editors of Variants, the Journal of the European Society for Textual Scholarship, we would like to invite you to submit an essay for the fifteenth edition of our journal. Variants is an Open Access journal, published by OpenEdition publishers. The journal will carry the title of our most recent ESTS conference in Málaga: “Textual Scholarship in the 21st Century”, and we especially welcome extended versions of papers that were presented at the conference. But essays outside of the conference are welcome too, on any aspect of textual scholarship such as the theories and practices of (digital) scholarly editing, tool development, genetic criticism, codicology and palaeography, philology, manuscript studies, etc.

Full papers are due by Friday March 13, 2020. If you are interested in submitting an essay, please send an expression of interest by Friday January 10th, that includes a brief description of the essay’s topic (approximately 50 to 100 words) to variants@textualscholarship.eu. If you’re interested in submitting a review, please send an email to rosignoli.stefano@gmail.com by December 31st, motivating the publication of a review on a given edition or monograph on textual scholarship.

For authors who are comfortable writing in LaTeX, we have prepared a template that is available on GitHub (https://github.com/WoutDLN/variantx-for-authors) and as an Overleaf template (https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/submission-template-to-variants-for-authors/znsqffgrvshv). But we accept submissions, in .docx and its open source equivalents as well.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to forward them to us!

We look forward to receiving your submissions,

The Editorial board of Variants,

General Editor, Wout Dillen
Associate Editor, Elli Bleeker
Guest Editor, Laura Esteban Segura
Review Editor, Stefano Rosignoli

Variants 14

As was already announced on the Society’s Twitter and Facebook pages, we are happy to present the research community with a new issue of Variants, the annual, peer-reviewed journal of The European Society for Textual Scholarship!

Variants 14 is the second issue in the series that is published in Open Access via the OpenEdition platform (previously revues.org) at https://journals.openedition.org/variants. The issues was edited by Wim Van Mierlo, Wout Dillen, and Elli Bleeker – with Stefano Rosignoli functioning as the issue’s Review Editor.

With the publication of this issue, Wim has now officially resigned from his position as the General Editor of Variants, passing his duties on to Wout (as General Editor) and Elli (as Associate Editor). The new editors wish to thank Wim for his long and much appreciated service on the issue’s editorial board, and for his efforts (together with Aurélien Berra) to make the journal more accessible to the general public by moving it to an Open Access publication venue.

We look forward to presenting the issue at the 2019 edition of our annual conference (28-29 November 2017) – where we will also invite our Members (and other textual scholars and scholarly editors) to submit a paper for Variants 15. We hope to see you there!

Owing to the transition of ​Variants ​to Open Access, the Board exceptionally extended the normal three-year term for the current Editor and Associate Editor of the journal. We are now seeking nominations for their replacement.

Variants 12/13 is out!

ESTS is happy to announce that the new issue of Variants, the annual, peer-reviewed journal of The European Society for Textual Scholarship, is out now!

Variants 12/13 is the first issue in the series that is published in Open Access via the Revues.org platform at https://variants.revues.org/. Individuals and institutions can subscribe to the journal by taking out membership in the Society which entitles them to a printed copy of the journal and immediate online access to the newest volume. A one-year moratorium applies to volumes in Open Access, that has been waived for the current issue because the move to our new Open Access publisher has considerably delayed the issue’s publication.

The official re-launch of Variants will take place in Alcalá de Henares, at the 2017 edition of our annual conference (23-24 November 2017). We hope to see you there!
