Parergon is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles on all aspects of medieval and early modern studies. We are especially interested in material that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries and takes new approaches.

Parergon has moved to an online submission system. To submit an essay for consideration in Parergon, please create an account from the 'Register' tab at the top of the page (if this is your first time using the online system), and select ‘New Submission’ from your User Home page. Otherwise, please log in to your existing account. A guide to submitting can be found here.

Essays published in Parergon are typically between 8000–10000 words, exclusive of reasonable footnotes. Longer articles can be accommodated by negotiation. Authors are advised to discuss such options directly with the Editor.

Essays should be submitted:

- With full references in footnotes that are in MHRA style, with no bibliographies. See:;

- In a Word document form, not PDF;

- With a 100-word abstract;

- With no references to its author in an identifiable form.

Essays should be substantially original, advance research in the field, and have the potential to make a significant contribution to the critical debate. 

Parergon does not accept submissions that have already been published or are currently under consideration elsewhere.

Parergon uses a double-blind peer review system, and the review process may last up to 6 months.
