The Review

The Chronicle Review is a weekly magazine of ideas. We publish essays, review essays, book reviews, and reporting on academic, intellectual, and cultural affairs. We consider unsolicited submissions; however, please read The Review before submitting your work to familiarize yourself with what we publish. While we cover the academy, we are not a scholarly journal. Essays should be written in a clear, informal style free of jargon and accessible to nonspecialists. We do not print footnotes.

All submissions are carefully reviewed. The decision to accept or reject a manuscript rarely takes more than a week. Because of the volume of submissions, we cannot provide a detailed explanation for why a manuscript has been rejected. All accepted essays and articles are rigorously edited and fact-checked. Authors have the opportunity to review and approve a manuscript before it's published. The editors of The Review will decide where and when the piece is published. Some articles will appear only online. Send submissions or queries to opinion@chronicle.com.

Commentary and Views

We consider articles or proposals for articles that express an opinion on issues and policies affecting higher education as well as those that explore, through the author's personal experience, some aspect of the larger academic community. All Commentary and Views submissions should be 1,000 to 1,200 words and should contain URL links to source material for facts and figures mentioned in the essay. Send submissions or queries to opinion@chronicle.com.

Advice

We publish first-person and advice columns on topics including the job market and the hiring process in academe; the graduate-school experience, tenure and promotion, the administrative career path, and career options for Ph.D.'s; professional challenges in research, publishing, teaching, and service work; academic culture; and balancing work and family.

Essays should be 1,000 to 1,500 words and written in a conversational, journalistic style. Direct further submission queries to denise.magner@chronicle.com.
