Submission Guidelines

The Ashford Humanities Review (AHR) offers Ashford students the opportunity to share high quality and original written works in the humanist disciplines in a peer-reviewed and edited publication. The AHR is currently seeking undergraduate essays that clearly relate and contribute to given subjects or topics across the field of humanities (literature, history, linguistics, music, philosophy, religious studies, foreign languages, art, and art history).

Submissions should be 3-15 pages (excluding title and reference pages) of original, academically appropriate, and researched writing that conforms to current MLA format and citation guidelines. For an overview of MLA Works Cited guidelines, visit the Ashford Writing Center website and click on the “APA/MLA” link at the top.

The AHR will be published annually, in September of each year. Submissions will be read from September 1 through June 1. Any submissions received outside of these dates will be put on hold until the next reading period opens.

All submissions must be received through Submittable (use the “Click here to Submit” button on lower right-hand side of this page). The publication of all manuscripts in the AHR depends upon the final approval of the Faculty Editing Board. Contributors to the AHR will see their work published online and archived indefinitely.

The Ashford Humanities Review recognizes student achievement and fosters the intellectual and personal growth of Ashford students by building skills and values that advance their personal and career development.
