The Journal for Literary and Intermedial Crossings (JLIC) is an e-journal that publishes original and innovative contributions engaging with literary and intermedial phenomena from various methodological angles and a wide range of disciplines including literary, theatre, media and cultural studies. We particularly welcome articles focusing on aesthetic ‘crossings’ of media, genres and spaces.
There will be two issues each year with original articles in English, French, German or Dutch. The Spring Issue (May) regroups regular submissions following an ‘Open Call,’ while the Fall Issue (November) represents a selection of papers delivered at the annual symposium of the journal’s founding research Centre for Literary and Intermedial Crossings. Call for Papers are regularly posted in the Open Calls section. In addition to articles, we also welcome suggestions for thematic issues for the journal’s spring edition. JLIC supports textual as well as multi-media formatting.
Contributions to JLIC can be written in English, French, German and Dutch. All manuscripts are peer-reviewed.
All work submitted to JLIC should reference and should be formatted according to our Author Guidelines.

Headings should be in 14 point, Bold, Times New Roman, Small Caps. Text body should be in 12 point, Times New Roman, double line spacing. Please limit footnotes to a bare minimum. These should be consistent with the MLA-style, as similarly imposed on in-text references and reference lists. Contributions should not exceed 5,000 words (references and footnotes included). Use the styles provided here: styles.
Identify all references to books, monographs, articles, and other source-types at an appropriate point in the main text by the author’s last name and pagination, as well as year of publication in case of multiple sources from the same author, where appropriate – all within parentheses and consistent with the MLA-style of formatting. Subsequent citations of the same source with identical pagination should be identified by (Ibid.). We distinguish the following types of in-text references, with mention of the publication date contingent upon the presence of multiple sources by the same author:
(Abram 6) [single author, single source]
(Austin 56-62) [single author, single source, page range]
(Baalman 209, 221) [single author, single source, multi. references]
(Adams 2011: 182) [single author, multiple sources]
(Adigard 2011c: 23) [single author, multiple sources from same year]
(Augoyard and Torgue 167) [single source, dual authorship]
(Atkins qtd. in Agamben 78) [author quoted in other source]
(Artaud 23; Ascott 5) [multiple related references]
(Augé et al. 54) [single source, multiple authors]
The reference list should be listed ‘Works Cited.’ List all entries cited in the text or any other items used to prepare the manuscript in alphabetical order – first by authors, then – in case of multiple entries by the same author – by year of publication. Alphabetize works with no known author by their title. Please follow the MLA-format, including mention of the publication medium.
