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 firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re interested in submitting a review, please send an email to email@example.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,
