Open Calls for Papers
JNT welcomes submissions of individual papers, as well as proposals for guest-edited special issues.
Every third issue of JNT is a special issue, which is edited by a guest editor and covers a specific topic relating to narrative. Read about our mission and what we publish here.
Information and instructions for guest editors can be found here.
Proposals for special issues can be sent to JNT@emich.edu. These proposals should offer a brief description of what the proposed special issue would look like and be about; information such as potential contributors and specific focuses within the scope of the topic the issue would seek to explore would also be be helpful. For reference, see the proposal for our upcoming special issue "Narratologies of Science".
JNT is currently accepting abstracts for its upcoming special issue "Unnatural Narratives in 21st Century Fiction". The deadline for abstracts is November 1st, 2022. More information can be found here.
