About This Journal

Studies in Scottish Literature (or SSL) was founded in 1963 by G. Ross Roy (1924-2013), and he was its only editor for nearly fifty years (vols. 1-36). In 2012, Professor Roy donated rights to the journal to the University of South Carolina Libraries, so that it could continue under new editorship.

In its new series, Studies in Scottish Literature is still published from the University of South Carolina, open to contributions on all periods and genres of Scottish literature. It continues, too, to welcome articles that explore the interrelations between Scottish literature and other literatures, and between traditionally literary approaches and research undertaken from other disciplinary perspectives. After many years as an annual volume, the journal is moving to two issues a year for a trial period, beginning in spring 2016, allowing publication of more articles and we hope a shorter time-to-publication.

Studies in Scottish Literature is now produced in two formats:

1. In a digital version, available at http://scholarcommons.sc.edu/ssl

2. As a print-on-demand paperback (beginning with volume 37). This can be purchased by individuals or libraries through such on-line channels as Amazon, Amazon UK, or Amazon Europe, or direct from the printer at https://www.createspace.com. No subscriptions for the print version should be mailed to the University or editors. Copies for the UK and Europe are printed in the UK, greatly reducing shipping costs and delivery time. Libraries, library serial vendors, and retailers should consult CreateSpaceDirect, the alternative web-site at www.createspace.com/info/createspacedirect

Please note that, from SSL 40 on, the journal is no longer being produced in the previous hardback option. Some copies of earlier volumes (1-2, 13-39) remain available in hardback; inquiries should be sent by email to Patrick Scott.
