Italian Quarterly is published by the Department of Italian at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.


Italian Quarterly welcomes critical contributions on Italian literature and culture, including film, translations of worthy literary pieces, and original poetry or prose in Italian. Critical material can be in English or Italian and should follow the MLA Style of citation (currently the 8th edition), particularly regarding all bibliographical references, including endnotes and a works cited page. Manuscripts, inclusive of abstract (150-200 words) and key words (6-8), must be submitted in Word format by email to: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Italian Quarterly welcomes creative reviews of around 1000 words written in English or Italian. Scholars can select a creative work in any medium (film, theater, novel, short story collection, poetry, translation) that has recently appeared in Italy in the last year and propose a review to Italian Quarterly. Because IQ does not provide access to any primary materials (neither books nor tickets to screenings or plays), reviewers are encouraged to choose a work that they will write about with fervor, for better or worse.

Reviewers are required to reach out to the creative review editor via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) indicating the creative work they wish to review. If their proposed title is accepted, reviewers will submit their reviews within one month of receiving confirmation from the editor, together with a brief biographical note (80 words). Please keep in mind that that reviews should be original in spirit. Thus, we ask reviewers to highlight their subjective assessment of the work while avoiding long-winded plot summary. Reviews must follow the MLA Style Guide (8th Edition). The edited and proofread review will be sent back to the reviewer with the editor’s comments within one month. We request that corrections be kindly submitted within one month of receiving feedback.

Articles appearing in this journal are annotated and/or indexed in America: History and Life, Arts and Humanities Citation Index, Historical Abstracts, MLA Directory of Periodicals, Italica, Rivista di Studi Italiani, Esperienze Letterarie.
