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 blind 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the understanding and under the author's warranty (1) that it has not been previously published in English, and will not be published elsewhere until after it has been published in SFS; (2) that the author will be financially responsible for any legal action taken against SFS by cause of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.

All articles for publication in SFS should be sent to Arthur B. Evans. Submissions may either be sent electronically via e-mail attachment or via regular post (with non-returnable CD). Please format your article according to the following guidelines:
1. PC-compatible files only (MS Word or WordPerfect).
2. length: 5,000-15,000 words.
3. on a separate page, include your name, your postal and e-mail addresses, the title of your essay, and a brief abstract describing its contents (5-8 sentences are sufficient).
4. use MLA Style for all documentation, with endnotes (not embedded, please) and a Works Cited.
5. provide English translations for all non-English titles and quotations.
In submitting an article for possible publication in SFS, the author warrants that it is not currently under consideration elsewhere and that it has not been published previously in English. All items for NOTES AND CORRESPONDENCE should be sent to Lisa Swanstrom at <> and to Carol McGuirk at <>. All books submitted for review in the Books in Review section should be sent to
