puscula: Short Texts of the Middle Ages and Renaissance

Call for Submissions to Opuscula: Short Texts of the Middle
Ages and Renaissance

About the Journal

Opuscula is a new high-quality peer-reviewed, on-line journal/text
series published by Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies at
the University of Saskatchewan and specializing in short texts of the
Middle Ages and Renaissance. We seek submissions from scholars of a
wide variety of disciplines and will include a diverse range of
texts, including literature, philosophy, letters, charters, court
documents, and notebooks.

The goal of the journal is to establish open access to a substantial
body of small but complete texts in scholarly editions to researchers
and educators. Our first issue will be published in September 2010.


Editions should generally be based on single witnesses although
critical editions may be considered. Where texts are not English,
translations may be appropriate but are not necessary. Texts should
generally be under 6000 words in length, and each must be accompanied
by an introduction in English of approximately 1500 words that
provides historical, literary, and bibliographic context and
codicological and palaeographic (or typographic) description. New
editions of previously edited pieces may be considered but only if
there are compelling reasons.

All submissions will be subject to a double-blind review process and
submissions for review must include facsimiles of any base
