Call for Papers: Fafnir 1/2024


Fafnir – Nordic Journal of Science Fiction and Fantasy Research invites authors to submit papers for issue 1/2024. Research into any and all aspects of science fiction, fantasy, and other speculative genres is welcome from a range of disciplines.

Fafnir – Nordic Journal of Science Fiction and Fantasy Research is a peer-reviewed academic journal published online twice a year. Fafnir is a completely open-access, non-profit publication of the Finnish Society for Science Fiction and Fantasy Research (FINFAR). Fafnir publishes various texts ranging from peer-reviewed research articles to short overviews and book reviews in the field of science fiction and fantasy research.

The submissions must be original works written in English, Finnish, or a Scandinavian language. Manuscripts for research articles should be between 20,000 and 40,000 characters in length. The journal uses the most recent edition of the MLA Style Manual (MLA 8). The manuscripts for research articles will be subjected to a double-blind peer-review. Please note that as Fafnir is designed to be of interest to readers with varying backgrounds, essays and other texts should be as accessibly written as possible. Also, if English is not your first language, please have your article proofread by an English-language editor. Please ensure your submission conforms to our journal’s submission guidelines, which are available at: http://journal.finfar.org/for-authors/submission-guidelines/

In addition to research articles, Fafnir welcomes text proposals for essays, interviews, overviews, conference reports, as well as book and thesis reviews on any subject suitable for the journal.

Please send your electronic submission (saved as DOC/DOCX or RTF) to the following address: submissions@finfar.org. You should get a reply indicating that we have received your submission in a few days. If not, please resubmit or contact the editors. Do note that editorial review of submissions begins after the CfP has closed. More information about the journal is available at our webpage: journal.finfar.org.

Offers to review recent academic books can be sent to reviews@finfar.org. We also post lists of available books on the IAFA listserv.
