The Burney Journal (ISSN 1480-6320) is the annual, peer-reviewed journal of the Burney Society.
The Burney Journal is dedicated to the study of the works of the Burney family, especially Frances Burney d’Arblay, her life, her contemporaries, and her times. This annual, interdisciplinary publication invites submissions on all aspects of the Burneys' lives and careers, in a variety of disciplines including literature, history, art, music, and politics. The aims of the journal center on supporting and advocating for eighteenth-century studies broadly, and particularly author studies, women's studies, and cultural studies. The Burney Journal features papers presented at The Burney Society’s annual meetings, which are held in North America and the United Kingdom, along with independent submissions.
Submissions to The Burney Journal must follow MLA format and can vary in length from 5,000 to 7,500 words; for shorter or longer submissions, please contact the editors. Please see The Burney Journal Stylesheet for further instructions. The Burney Journal is indexed by EBSCO.
