The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies (ISSN 2009-0374) is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary, open-access, electronic publication, affiliated with the Irish Network for Gothic Studies, and dedicated to the study of gothic and horror literature, film, new media, and television.

We are currently seeking submissions of articles and reviews that deal with any aspect of gothic and horror studies, including (but not limited to) literature, film, television, theatre, art and architecture, music, and new media. Please note that we cannot include pictures or sound files with articles or reviews.

We will consider articles between 5000-7000 words. Articles should follow the MHRA style sheet, which is available in full here:

Article deadline: 1st March 2017.

Reviews should be no more than 1000 words (though we may consider longer essay-type reviews), and should include full publication/release/transmission dates and details of the subject discussed. Please note, reviews of contemporary and classic horror films should focus on those that have been released or revived theatrically or on DVD within the last year.

Reviews deadline: 1st May 2017.

We are happy to consider submissions prior to these deadlines. However, decisions regarding publication may not be made until after the Call for Submissions has closed.

Articles and reviews can be submitted for consideration to Dr Dara Downey and Dr Niall Gillespie at
