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.

This special issue on Scottish Cosmopolitanism at the Fin de Siècle, guest-edited by Matthew Creasy of the University of Glasgow and Michael Shaw of the University of Stirling, brings together perspectives from literary criticism, art history, the history of the book, periodical studies, and digital humanities.

The journal is published both in digital and print format, and currently provides free full-text access for the entire journal run (vols. 1-48.1, 1963-Spring 2022). Since August 2012, the site has totaled over 430,000 full-text article downloads. The link on this page for Print Subscriptions also provides information about three related series, Scottish Poetry Reprints, South Carolina Scottish Literature Studies, and an occasional series publishing special lectures. The journal publishes new research and critical debate on all periods of Scottish literature; information about submitting articles is given on the Aims and Scope page (linked on the left, and see also under Rights and Permissions).
