About ELS Editions

ELS Editions is a non-profit publisher of peer-reviewed literary and cultural criticism. We currently welcome scholarly editions of literary works or other documents from the literary archive and English translations of important critical monographs.

Our mandate in accepting critical editions is to fill notable gaps in the primary literature of certain periods, genres, and/or established authors. Our mandate in accepting translations is to make available scholarship or literature of acknowledged importance that has been hitherto accessible only to readers of the original language.

We request a detailed proposal that addresses the project in terms of this mandate and provides at least a preliminary account of the status of copyright.
