Getting Published


MLA directory of periodicals
is the most thorough descriptive directory of currently published periodicals that accept articles in the areas of literature, theory, and related fields. To access this directory online:

  • Go to:
    MLA international bibliography (ProQuest version)
  • Then select:
    "Directory of Periodicals" link from upper left corner of page.
  • You can search by publication title or by subject. For each journal, the Directory will typically provide information such as: scope, circulation, and number of articles published per year.
  • If you do not find, in the Directory description of the journal, a link to the journal's own Website, then do a search on Google for the journal's title so that you can find its Website with complete submission guidelines. The journal's Website will always provide the most detailed and current submission guidelines.
