Research Monographs in French Studies are selected, edited
and supported by the Society for French
Studies. The series seeks to publish the best new work in all
areas of the literature, thought, theory, culture, film and language
of the French-speaking world. The target length for books in the series,
whilst not cast in stone, is 50,000–60,000 words, in the interests of
achieving a strongly focused argument. As innovation is a priority of
the series, volumes should predominantly consist of new material, although,
subject to appropriate modification, previously published research may form up
to one third of the whole.
RMFS books must be written in English, with quotations from primary sources
given in French and, normally, accompanied by an English translation.
Proposals may include critical editions as well as critical studies.
They should be sent with one or two sample chapters for
consideration to the General Editor, Professor Diana Knight, at (email@example.com
.uk). All members of the Editorial Committee read all proposals and
sample material. Examiners’ reports are sought in the case of proposals
based on doctoral theses. We aim to respond to proposals with a decision
and written feedback within two to three months.
Authors in this series are not required to raise any subsidy or subvention, but are responsible in the usual way if any rights fees arise from illustrations or other copyright material included.
RMFS was Legenda's first named series, and was founded in 1996. Under the general
editorships of Michael Moriarty (1996-2005), Ann Jefferson (2005-12), and now Diana
Knight (2012-), RMFS has grown to more than 50 titles.
