STATEMENT OF PURPOSE AND PROCEDURES. SFS publishes articles and book reviews on science fiction, broadly defined. All opinions expressed in signed contributions  appearing in SFS are those of the author(s); they are not necessarily those of the publishers or editors.

SFS is a refereed and selective journal. All articles submitted to SFS pass through a three-stage peer review and revision process: (1) the article is initially reviewed by the editors of SFS; (2) if it is judged to be potentially publishable, then the article is sent to our editorial consultants for further review; (3) if the outside reviews are positive, an SFS editor is then assigned to work with the author to prepare the article for eventual publication.

Any contribution that is accepted for publication in SFS is done so with the understanding and under the author's warranty (1) that it has not been previously published in English, and will not be published elsewhere until after it has been published in SFS; (2) that the author will be financially responsible for any legal action taken against SFS by cause of his/her contribution; (3) that SFS retains the right to republish the contribution in any issue or reissue of SFS in any form, including the SFS website, and to reprint it in any anthology sponsored by SFS; (4) that in any subsequent republication of the contribution, the author will acknowledge its first publication in SFS.

SFS posts selected material on its website only with the implicit agreement of its authors. SFS contributors who do not wish the full text of their published work to be posted on the SFS website should make their wishes known to any of the SFS editors listed above, and such postings will be promptly removed.

SFS will not review article submissions that are under consideration elsewhere or that have been published previously.

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION. When submitting an article to SFS, please format it according to the following guidelines:
1. PC-compatible files only (MS Word or WordPerfect preferred);
2. required length: 5,000-15,000 words;
3. on a separate page, include your name and your postal and e-mail addresses, the title of your essay, and a brief abstract of its contents (3-5 sentences);
4. for the text itself: margins at 1", double spaced, font size 12 pt. or smaller;
5. use MLA Style for all documentation;
6. include Notes and Works Cited at the end as regular text. In other words, please do NOT use the "automatic" footnote/endnote function on your word processor to generate these. They sometimes tend to disappear when traveling through cyberspace or when the document is converted. 

For matters of writing style with respect to endnotes, works cited, and references in running text, contributors should follow the style of the MLA Style Manual, 1999. Precise information on the following must be provided. For books: the place of publication, publisher, date, and page numbers for quoted or paraphrased passages, and (for articles in anthologies) inclusive page numbers. If the edition cited is a later edition, provide also the date of the first edition. For articles in periodicals: volume number or (if there is no volume number) whole number, date of issue cited, page numbers for quoted or paraphrased passages, and inclusive page numbers.

Articles submitted for publication in SFS should be sent to Arthur B. Evans. They may be sent either electronically via e-mail attachment or as a single hard copy (with CD) via regular post. Please include, if possible, an e-mail and a postal address with the submission. Contributions to NOTES AND CORRESPONDENCE should be sent to Carol McGuirk. Books for review should be sent to Rob Latham at the following address: Rob Latham, English Dept., University of California, Riverside, CA, 92521.
