The Italian American Studies Association has re-launched its annual volume of peer-reviewed scholarship on all aspects of the Italian American experience. The new volume, the IASA Annual,  will be published annually by  the State University of New York Press starting in the late fall of 2017.
We now invite submissions for the 2017 IASA Annual. Submissions are not limited to those papers delivered at the 2015/16 IASA conferences but presenters there are strongly encouraged to consider submitting their work. 
      As an academic association of scholars representing a wide range of disciplines, interests, and approaches, IASA seeks theory- and research-based papers in such fields as history, sociology, political science, anthropology, literary and cultural studies, women’s studies, and related fields.  
Authors wishing to have a manuscript considered for publication should email the following three items in Microsoft Word format as attachments to the editor (
1. A copy of the manuscript, including page headers with the author’s name throughout
2. A copy of the manuscript without any identification of the author-- no title page, or header
3. An abstract
      Articles should generally be no more than twenty-five pages (6250 words) long, double-spaced, not including bibliography and endnotes. The Annual generally follows the 15th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2003). For more information, see
       Manuscripts are acknowledged on receipt and are evaluated first by the editor, and, if necessary, by members of the editorial board.  If appropriate for the Annual, manuscripts are sent to two referees for a blind review. Authors are notified as soon as a decision has been made to accept or reject a manuscript, or to ask for revisions. Submissions should not have been published elsewhere nor be under consideration by any other publication. If a paper is accepted for publication, the author is responsible for providing the Annual editor with a clean, corrected copy of the manuscript in Word format, with all illustrative material properly formatted and all permissions cleared.
