The Professional Wresting Studies Association invites submissions for the inaugural issue of the Professional Wrestling Studies Journal, an open-access, peer-reviewed academic journal.
We welcome scholarly work from any theoretical and methodological lens that is rigorous, insightful, and expands our audience’s understanding of professional wrestling past or present as a cultural, social, political, and/or economic institution.
All submissions must be original scholarly work and free of identifying information for blind review. Written articles should be submitted as Word documents and no more than 8,000 words, inclusive of a 200-word abstract and a reference list. MLA citation style is required. Any images that are not original require copyright clearance. Articles will be converted into PDFs for publication, so hyperlinks should be active.
For multimedia productions and experimental scholarship, please contact editor-in-chief Matt Foy (email@example.com) to verify length and proper format in which to send the piece.
The deadline for submissions is October 31, 2019 for an April 2020 publication.
Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
