Nineteenth-Century French Studies provides scholars and students with the opportunity to examine new trends, review promising research findings, and become better acquainted with professional developments in the field. Scholarly articles on all aspects of nineteenth-century French literature and criticism are published. Invited essays of nearly double the length of a traditional article and Incipit, a dialogic format in which two colleagues debate a matter of primary concern to the field, are also featured. The journal has an extensive book review section, published and made freely available online, covering a variety of disciplines. 

Nineteenth-Century French Studies was awarded the 2016 Phoenix Award for Significant Editorial Achievement from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals.

Special Issue Proposals
Nineteenth-Century French Studies welcomes proposals for special issues and dossiers that demonstrate those qualities that have long been the hallmark of the journal: rigor and depth of exposition; a balance of theory and textual analysis; and contributions from European and North American scholars, from junior and senior colleagues alike. For investigating a new field of study, for crossing disciplines, or for highlighting a certain line of inquiry, the Editorial Board invites expressions of interest for projects that stand to make significant contributions to our field's understanding of the long nineteenth century. Articles in English or French will follow MLA style and be approximately 6,500–7,000 words in length (including endnotes and list of Works Cited).

Libraries face a dilemma: the number of books, journals, and other information resources available to offer to their patrons is growing faster than their acquisitions budgets. Decisions about which new materials to add in a given year are influenced by a number of factors, not the least of which are whether they are aware of the existence of a resource and the value that resource would bring to those who rely on the library. Librarians often appreciate the input of users in gathering the information they need to make those evaluations. There is no one right way to share information about a particular journal with a library. Some institutions have formal procedures for submitting acquisition requests, others rely on regular communication between subject area librarians and the departments they serve, and some have no specifically defined method. You are in the best position to determine the most appropriate method for approaching your library with a request for the addition of a journal to its collection. However, we have developed a library recommendation form as one tool you can use to provide your library with relevant information. The form contains basic information about the journal: a description, its print and electronic ISSNs, frequency of publication, pricing, print and electronic options, and ordering information. It also includes a few questions for you to complete that address your evaluation of the journal's value. If you choose to use the form, fill it out then send it to the appropriate individual at your library. Do not return it to the University of Nebraska Press.
