Submission Guidelines

All submissions other than letters and brief responses to articles (under 1000 words)
should be formatted for blind review and include a title page with paper title, author
name, affiliation (if applicable), abstract (up to 150 words), and up to 5 key words.
Papers should be submitted single-spaced in Times New Roman font, 12 point, under
one of the following file formats: pdf, rtf, doc, or docx. Any Greek words or text
should be entered as Unicode characters. Papers should adhere to The Chicago
Manual of Style and follow the citation scheme provided at the end of each issue.
The same paper may be submitted to the yearly meeting of the Heidegger Circle
and to Gatherings. All papers should be sent in attachment to polt@xavier.edu, with
subject “Gatherings.”

Papers that discuss recently published texts by Heidegger or undertake critical evaluations or extensions of Heidegger's work are particularly encouraged.

Gatherings also invites letters to the editor on any topic pertinent to Heidegger scholarship, and brief replies (up to 1000 words) to articles published in the journal. Letters and replies may be abbreviated and edited if they are chosen for publication.

Papers, letters, and replies to articles should be e-mailed to editor Richard Polt, polt@xavier.edu.

We also publish reviews of selected books that are pertinent to Heidegger scholarship. Interested authors, publishers, and reviewers are invited to contact book review editor Christopher Merwin (christopher.merwin@emory.edu).

Note: Gatherings is sponsored by the Heidegger Circle, but is separate from the yearly Circle meeting and its Proceedings. Papers presented at the meeting will normally be included in that year's Proceedings, which are made available to members only. Papers presented at the meeting will not automatically be considered for Gatherings, but they may be submitted. Authors of papers submitted to Gatherings do not have to be Heidegger Circle members, and papers do not have to have been presented at the Circle meeting.

Deadline for the 2020 issue: February 1, 2020

We recommend submitting your work before this date
in order to allow time for possible revisions.
