Studies in Scottish Literature, founded in 1963 and based at the University of South Carolina since 1965, was the first refereed scholarly journal in its field, and it remains among the top Scottish literature journals internationally, publishing new research and critical debate on all periods of Scottish literature. It is currently published in both digital and print format, with free full-text access for the entire journal run (vols. 1-41, 1963-2015).

After many years as an annual volume, the journal is moving to two issues a year for a trial period, beginning in spring 2016. This will allow publication of more articles and also, we hope, a shorter time-to-publication. Submissions are invited for future issues. Please consult the Aims and Scope page before submitting.

Current Issue: Volume 41, Issue 1 (2015)
