Finnish-North-American topics from multi- and inter-disciplinary and traditional disciplinary
perspectives. We actively seek articles and conference proceeds from our colleagues in
these various disciplines concerned with Finnish Studies in its broad context and from
institutions across the globe.
We read and publish both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts for our open issues, and we
have planned several themed issues which will be announced as the editorial process
We use a double-blind review process to ensure the quality of the articles we publish. If
you would like to serve as a reviewer, send your CV and your request to serve by email to
one or both of the editors listed above.
We use the APA documentation style. You can access a free reference to APA Style on the
Purdue University OWL site. Unlike APA, we do not require a cover pager or a running
head for article submissions, but all other requirements, including a 120-word abstract,
should be observed.
We publish reviews of books of academic and literary interest to our readership. If you
wish to submit a book review, send it directly to our book review editor at the email
address listed above.
