ELH (English Literary History) is an academic journal established in 1934 at Johns Hopkins University, devoted to the study of major works in the English language, particularly British literature. It covers developments in literature through historical, critical, and theoretical methods. The current editor-in-chief is Douglas Mao (Johns Hopkins University).
ELH self-describes as
welcom[ing] sophisticated, groundbreaking essays on all literatures in English and on cultural forms and contexts related to those literatures. Continuing a tradition that stretches back to 1934, the journal's editors balance historical, critical, and theoretical concerns in seeking to publish the very best work on English-language writing from its beginnings to the present day.
Submissions are received year-round. Authors are asked that manuscripts submitted for review be "in Word (.doc or .docx) format," "in accordance with The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed.," and "double-spaced, with one-inch margins, in Times New Roman, 12 pt. font." The word count for manuscripts is between 8,000 and 12,000 words, including endnotes.
Previous editors-in-chief include Jonathan Kramnick (Yale University), Frances Ferguson (University of Chicago), Ronald Paulson (Johns Hopkins University). The current editorial board is available online.
