Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers should be formatted for blind review, omitting any references to the author and the author’s publications; if the paper is accepted, such references can be added before publication. Papers should include an abstract of up to 150 words. They should adhere to The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition. Texts by authors other than Heidegger should be cited in endnotes that follow the Chicago Notes and Bibliography style, but no bibliography is needed. Texts by Heidegger are cited parenthetically by Gesamtausgabe (GA) volume and standard translation, when one is available; for examples, consult articles and "Texts Cited" in our most recent issue. Papers should be submitted single-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font, in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx) or Rich Text Format (.rtf). If any non-Roman characters are used, text should be entered in accordance with the Unicode system and a PDF copy of the paper should accompany the submission.

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 2019 issue: February 1, 2019

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