  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

  • Any personal information has been removed from the document. In MS Word in Windows you can do this by clicking 'Check for issues' and then 'Inspect document'. In MS Word for Mac, click 'Tools'>'Protect Document' and check the box next to 'Remove personal information from this file on save'.

Author Guidelines

We welcome submissions on the plays and poems of Christopher Marlowe. We accept original research articles, theatre reviews and book reviews. There will be no discussion of the so-called authorship question and we will not print ad hominem attacks.


Articles should usually be around 7000 words long, but we are open to pieces of other lengths.  Articles will be subject to double-blind peer review before acceptance.


Please use the Chicago footnote style.
