ADS is published twice annually: in April and October. April issues are general and unthemed; October issues are guest edited and are devoted to some special focus interest.
Contributions for April issues should be directed to the general Editor (Yoni Prior) while those for October should be directed to the Guest Editor[s]. In practice, prospective contributors should, in the first instance, send an expression of interest and abstract to the relevant editor or guest editor before committing to a fully-written article.
(N.B. this style is preferred even if the original headline is 'Lost in the clouds')
Reviews should not normally exceed 1,200 words and should not include Endnote references.
Australasian Drama Studies is indexed in AUSTLIT, the Australian literary database; in APAIS (Australian Public Affairs Information Service); the MLA Bibliography; Australian Literary Studies; Modern Drama; and the International Bibliography of Theatre.
Online retrieval of articles available from APAFT (Australian Public Affairs Full Text Service) and from Informit (RMIT Publishing). Acceptance for publication implies assigning rights to ADS to publish material in any format. Copyright and moral rights remain with authors.
The editors welcome relevant visual images, video clips or sound files to accompany written texts. Please submit images as separate jpeg files or black and white photographs. Please ensure that the videographer/photographer/designer is duly acknowledged and that they understand the copyright arrangements (including the image's online availability through APAIS). The photographer's name as well as any persons appearing in the image should be clearly marked on the back of the photograph or in an email in the case of jpeg attachment.
Please email your submission or any other enquiry to Yoni Prior. For submissions for publication in special focus issues, please send directly to the guest editor as listed on the inside cover of recent issues.
