Journal of South Texas English Studies

Journal of South Texas English Studies

 

The Journal of South Texas English Studies was originally created by the UTB/TSC English Graduate Advancement and Development Society (EGADS!) in March 2009. After the formation of UTRGV, and a hiatus, the journal is now active and accepting submissions. Our journal follows a blind editorial review process and publishes academic articles on a wide variety of areas related to English Studies (literature, rhetoric, composition, linguistics, theory, and pedagogy), as well as critical book reviews. We accept submissions from regional, national, and international contributors. Submissions should follow either MLA 8th edition or APA 6th edition documentation conventions. Detailed format guidelines are found in our Guidelines page. The journal is produced twice each year (Winter and Summer). JOSTES is indexed on the EBSCO Humanities International Index and Humanities International Full-Text Index.

Please note that, as of March 2019, the Journal has ceased publication for the foreseeable future. Previous issues' abstracts are still available for viewing through EBSCO Humanities International Index.
