Eighteenth-Century Fiction (ECF) is an international, peer-reviewed quarterly devoted to the critical and historical investigation of literature and culture of the period 1660-1832. Since its foundation in 1988, ECF has expanded its scope to reflect changes in the discipline, and we now solicit and publish a variety of approaches on a wide range of relevant cultural materials.

Editorial Policy

Recognizing the fluid notions of fiction within the period, as well as the growing body of interdisciplinary work by scholars in the field, the ECF editors seek submissions that conceive of "fiction" in its broader sense and expand the frameworks of critical, historical, and theoretical discussion. While its languages of publication are English and French, the journal publishes articles that cover all geographical territories.

The ECF protocol with regards to funding agencies' open-access requirements:
In order to ensure that authors can publish in ECF and still comply with their funders' open-access requirements, the ECF editors have implemented the following policy.
An author may upload the accepted Eighteenth-Century Fiction article or essay document file to his or her own institutional online repository. The ECF editors ask that the date and place of publication of the finalized article be noted and that a link to the ECF website be included with the file that is uploaded to an institutional or disciplinary (subject) repository.

The ECF editors require that authors wait until after the date of publication of their articles in the journal Eighteenth-Century Fiction to post their accepted manuscripts to any institutional open-access repositories. This ECF policy meets the Canadian Tri-Agency requirements on open access.

ECF authors are requested to sign a contract with Eighteenth-Century Fiction/McMaster University that states:

Eighteenth-Century Fiction (ECF), McMaster University, obtains and owns the copyright on the contents of its journal. To clarify the rights of authors and ECF, and thus insure the protection of both, ECF requires that an author formally assign all rights to ECF before an article is published. Section 6 of the contract includes the right of the author to republish in certain forms: "We will accede to any request by the Author(s) to use part or all of their article in an article or in a book published under either the Author(s)’s exclusive authorship or editorship, provided that acknowledgment of its first appearance is made in a manner approved by ECF, and in such cases no fee for reprinting shall be payable to us." For the complete text of a standard ECF article contract, please contact ecf@mcmaster.ca.

NOTE to all ECF authors and book reviewers:
Please remember that academia.edu is not an institutional repository: use only the link to ECF on Project MUSE and the abstract of your own ECF article for notices on academia.edu about your recently published work.

Eighteenth-Century Fiction is published with the support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

ECF is produced under the auspices and with the support of The Department of English and Cultural Studies, McMaster University

ECF is a not-for-profit publication, and receives generous support from the McMaster University Faculty of Humanities.
