For more than fifty years, SEL 1500–1900 has been proud to publish some of the finest critical and historical scholarship in the field of English literature.
SEL is available in a variety of forms—digitally from Project Muse and JSTOR and in print from Johns Hopkins University Press.
SEL is open year-round for scholarly submissions, and all articles will be read by our dedicated journal staff and external readers. Submission guidelines as well as frequently asked questions can be found here.
SEL regularly updates our arrivals list with those books that have been mailed out to the reviewer.
Every year, SEL honors outstanding scholarly work in British literature. Read more about the annual Spears, Dietz, and Patten awards.
Keep updated on SEL events, conference sponsorships, and journal announcements.
Electronic texts of SEL volumes 1 through 52 (1961-2012) are now available on JSTOR.
