Partnership: The Modern Language Association’s (MLA) Flagship Journal PMLA to be Published by Cambridge University Press

From Cambridge University Press:

Cambridge University Press has reached an agreement with the Modern Language Association of America (MLA) to publish their flagship journal, PMLA.

Since its launch in 1884, PMLA has published members’ essays judged to be of interest to scholars and teachers of language, literature, cultural studies, writing studies, and related disciplines. It is considered to be the pre-eminent journal in its field and one of the most important journals in the humanities.

The Press will partner with the MLA to publish the journal from 2021. Under the arrangement, the MLA will retain full oversight over the selection of PMLA content and the intellectual direction of the journal, continue to manage the journal’s rigorous peer review and editorial processes, and appoint the editor and board.

Each issue of PMLA (January, March, May, and October) is sent directly to about 26,000 college and university teachers of English and foreign languages who belong to the association and to about 1,800 libraries throughout the world.
