The Journal of Historical Linguistics offers online submission. Please consult the Short Guide to EM for Authors before you submit your paper.

Regular mail submissions are also considered, in which case two hard copies should be sent. See the bottom of this page for contact information. At this stage in the process, it is not yet necessary that submissions adhere to the journal's style sheet. Texts should be double-spaced, printed on one side of the page only, with all pages numbered consecutively. Figures, charts and tables can be left in the appropriate place in the manuscript. In order to permit double-blind refereeing, submissions should not carry author information. Contributors who are not native speakers of English should have their manuscript carefully checked by a native speaker.

Please note that any material submitted to JHL must be original work, not published or under review elsewhere, and contributors may not submit this work elsewhere while it is under review for this journal. If related material has been published or is under consideration or in press elsewhere, that must be disclosed to the editors. Similarly, if part of a contribution has appeared or will appear elsewhere, contributors must specify the details in a cover letter accompanying the submission.

If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to submit a final version prepared according to the JHL Stylesheet (PDF).
