Editorial Focus

SALMAGUNDI is a quarterly of the Humanities and Social Sciences which is addressed to the “general” reader rather than to the academic specialist. Founded in 1965 and published since 1969 at Skidmore College, the magazine routinely publishes essays, reviews, interviews, fiction, poetry, regular columns, polemics, debates and symposia. It is widely regarded as one of the most influential intellectual quarterlies in the United States, and though it is often discussed as a “little magazine,” it is by no means predominantly belletristic or narrow in its purview or its audience.

Tips From the Editor

Salmagundi does not have specific guidelines regarding unsolicited submissions. Attachments that open in Microsoft word make our life easier, so we encourage you to format your work accordingly. We do ask that you please read several issues of the magazine first, however, and that you only send us work which might conceivably belong in our pages. Highly specialized scholarly academic studies with many footnotes, for example, are not likely to find a home in SALMAGUNDI. Science fiction and potboiler fiction are similarly unlikely bets. Experimental work that employs conventions from such genres in formal ways might, on the other hand, be attractive to the editors.
