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 remains among the top Scottish literature journals internationally, publishing new research and critical debate on all periods of Scottish literature.

Two special issues, on Scottish-Russian Literary Relations since 1900, guest-edited by Anna Vaninskaya (SSL 44:1, contents shown below), and on Reworking Walter Scott, guest-edited by Daniel Cook and Lucy Wood (SSL 44:2) will be followed in SSL 45.1 and 2 by articles from the full range of periods.

Submissions are invited for future issues; please consult the Aims and Scope page before submitting. The journal is published both in digital and print format, with free full-text access for the entire journal run (vols. 1-43.2, 1963-2018). Since the first tranche of digitized volumes was released in August 2012, well over a quarter of a million full-text articles have been downloaded. The link on this page for Print Subscriptions also provides information about two related series, Scottish Poetry Reprints and South Carolina Scottish Literary Studies.
