Basic Submission Guidelines for History of Political Economy

All submissions and editorial correspondence should be sent to

Papers should be typed for submission as a Word document. Do not use software designed for mathematical word processing (e.g., LaTeX); if you do, and your paper is accepted for submission, you will be asked to submit the final version of the paper in Word.

Papers should be double-spaced, use 12-point size, use a conventional type such as Times New Roman, and have one-inch margins all around. Include a message that announces the title of the paper, identifies it as a submission, and briefly describes its content. HOPE uses a single-blind referee process, so please include your name and affiliation (if you have one) on the first page of your paper. The HOPE style guide can be found on the Duke University Press website. 

Only original, unpublished papers will be considered. Please do not simultaneously offer your paper to another publication.

Images should be scanned at at least 300 dpi and at 4.25 inches wide and be submitted as a TIFF or EPS graphics file. Authors are expected to sign a publication agreement as a precondition of publication. Please retain a copy of the publication agreement for your records, as it explains what your rights are as the author of the paper, including republication rights. When preparing your manuscript for final submission, refer to the seventeenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style for matters of style.
