Changes to Legacy Advisory Board
We are happy to announce the appointment of Catherine Keyser of the University of South Carolina to our advisory board. Catherine has served the journal faithfully as a consultant/reader and has broad expertise in modern American women’s writing, gender studies, and periodical studies. We are thrilled to have her as a board member!
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Meredith Goldsmith for her stellar service on the board. During her term, which ended in June, Meredith has been unfailingly generous in both the quality and quantity of her contributions. We are grateful for all she has done for the journal and the field, and we are excited that she will continue serving us as a consultant/reader.
Policy Changes Make More Work Eligible for Submission
The University of Nebraska Press, which publishes Legacy, has recently modified its stance on what constitutes previously published work. It is now acceptable for authors to submit work to the journal that is based on a conference paper posted online, work that has appeared online as part of a working paper series (that is, an unrefereed manuscript version of the article), or work of this nature that has been posted in required university repositories.
However, we still are not able to consider previously published work that has simply been repurposed or any kind of work for which the author has transferred copyright through a publication agreement or its legal equivalent. We understand that authors want—and indeed are sometimes required—to share their scholarship in the ways listed above, and we hope that the relaxed policy will make it easier for them to submit their work to Legacy.
