FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you pay?
At this moment, we are still running Turkoslavia and its journal on a volunteer basis.
What are your formatting requirements?
Formatting is of minor concern, but we do prefer Word docs (no pdfs) for both source text and translation.
Do you accept simultaneous submissions?
Yes! Do let us know you are considering other homes for your work and withdraw as soon as possible.
Do you accept novel excerpts?
Yes! As long as they can be read as stand-alone pieces.
Do you accept translations of unpublished works?
Do we need to secure translation rights?
If accepted, you will be asked to share with us the permission to publish from the copyright holder. The journal will not request those rights on your behalf.
Do you accept self-translations?
We prefer submissions not translated by the author, but may consider self-translations in certain instances.
Do you publish book reviews?
Not at this time.
Do you accept reprints?
Reprints will be considered if justified—i.e., if the piece is out of print or there is another barrier to its access. If the piece is accepted for publication, the translator will be asked to share proof of permission to publish from the copyright holder.
