We are no longer accepting submissions for the Spring 2018 issue. Please check back in August 2018 should you be interested.

Guidelines for Authors

Clio’s Scroll welcomes submissions from undergraduate students and recent graduates of any university. The editors look for articles that contribute to historical knowledge with new content and original interpretations. Research papers of any length—although we highly favor papers under 60 pages—from all universities, history courses, and historical areas of focus are welcome. For UC Berkeley students, this includes papers from History 103 and 104, as well as History 101 theses. Papers from other disciplines are also welcome, so long as they are historical in nature.

No previously published articles are accepted. If your essay is under review by another journal, let us know in your email.

To Submit

Please email by the appropriate deadline.

In the subject of your email, please put “Journal Submission.” In the body of your email, provide us with your full name, year, major(s), and your university name.

Essays should be in Word or PDF format, in 12 point Times New Roman font with 2.0 line spacing and 1.15 footnote spacing.

The essay file should be cleared of all mentions of author’s name. This will assist in retaining the anonymity of the editorial process.

The essay should be accompanied by a cover page that includes the title of your essay, and “Clio’s Scroll submission (Fall/Spring YYYY).” Although not required, the Editorial Board also prefers an abstract (less than 150 words) as well as five keywords that summarize the main content/argument of the article to assist editors in the review process. We kindly suggest that students verify all statistics, quotations, notations, versions of proper names, and transliterations before they submit essays for consideration.
