History. The Year’s Work in Modern Language Studies began in 1930, aiming to provide ‘a concise, even laconic, and discriminating summary of the chief results and tendencies of research’. It was credited as the work of ‘a number of scholars’, but directed until the 1970s by a succession of single editors with relatively short tenure. The distinguished Oxford Hispanist William Entwistle, the first editor, handed over to the French scholar Leonard Tancock in vol. 9 (1938). The Cambridge Occitanist Stanley Aston directed the journal from vol. 11 to vol. 17 (1956), followed by a succession of distinguished scholars including Leslie Topsfield, Graham Orton, Peter Ganz, and Nigel Glendinning, generally taking 3-year turns. In vol. 34 (1972) the editorial baton was passed to Glanville Price, joined in vol. 37 (1975) by David Wells. In the 1990s the team expanded to include editors for each language section, under the General Editorship of the Slavist Peter Mayo (vols 51 to 59) and then the medieval Lusitanist Stephen Parkinson (vols 60 to 76). He is now succeeded by Graeme Dunphy and Paul Scott, previously section editors for Germanic and French respectively.

Volumes 1–24 were published by Cambridge University Press for the MHRA, 25-60 by W. S. Maney for MHRA, 61-71 by Maney Publishing for MHRA, and 72-76 under MHRA's own imprint.
