Clio’s Scroll is no longer accepting submissions for its Fall 2018 issue. Please check back in 2019 for our Spring 2019 issue.

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 classes, 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 paper is under review by another journal, let us know in your email.

To Submit

Please email by Friday, September 28 at 11:59 PM (PST) with your submission.

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

Papers should be in Word or PDF format, in 12 point Times New Roman font with 2.0 line spacing. Articles should also contain Chicago Style footnotes (endnotes) and a correctly formatted bibliography.

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

Please submit no more than one paper per issue.

Your paper should be accompanied by a cover page that includes the title of your paper, and “Clio’s Scroll submission Fall 2018.” 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.

Please email us at if you have any questions. We look forward to reading your submission!
