The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies (ISSN 2009-0374)is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary, electronic publication dedicated to the study of Gothic and horror literature, film, new media and television. It was launched in October 2006 by Elizabeth McCarthy and Bernice M. Murphy, both of Trinity College Dublin. In September 2012, Dara Downey (University College Dublin) and Jenny McDonnell (Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Dun Laoghaire) took over as editors.
The submission deadlines for the next issue of The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies are as follows:

We are now seeking submissions of articles and reviews that deal with any aspect of Gothic and horror studies, including (but not limited to) literature, film, television and new media.
We will consider articles between 5000-7000 words. Commencing with Issue #13, articles should follow the MHRA style sheet. Reviews should be no more than 1000 words with full publication/release/transmission dates and details of the subject discussed. Please note, reviews of contemporary and classic horror films should focus on those that have been released or revived theatrically or on DVD within the last year.
