Author Guidelines

Scottish Studies is intended primarily for scholars, but also seeks to be accessible to a wider readership. The form of contributions should be scholarly, with references and supporting bibliography. If necessary, a glossary of technical or dialect terms should also be appended.

Submissions may be made in English or Scottish Gaelic. If submitting in Gaelic, writers should provide an abstract in English.

To ensure that Scottish Studies is suitable for their work, authors should download and carefully read the following documents before submission:

Your paper should be submitted electronically, using Microsoft Word. Please do not send a hard copy. You should also submit a PDF version of your article in addition to the MSWord version in order to avoid any possible corruption of your Word file that may occur during transmission, especially if it contains illustrations. Such things have been known to happen.

Online registration, which may be required for submission to other journals published by Edinburgh University, is not required for Scottish Studies. Submissions and further queries should be emailed directly to the Editor, Scottish Studies:
