Welcome to Issue 14 (Summer 2005) of the Cardiff Corvey: Reading the Romantic Text [ISSN 1471-5988] online journal.  Cardiff Corvey is based in the Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research (CEIR), itself part of the School of English, Communication and Philosophy.  Our Update pages serve as a source of editorial content, as well as providing the latest information regarding the Cardiff Corvey Project and related matters.  We hope to keep you informed of the developments associated with the Corvey Microfiche Edition and Romantic studies in general, including details of Romantic studies research in CEIR, short-term aims for our website, and our various projects.  Please click on one of the links at the bottom of the page for further details.

The current issue of Cardiff Corvey: Reading the Romantic Text is the last under that designation. In order to reflect its widening remit and international presence, the journal will be relaunched as Romantic Textualities: Literature and Print Culture, 1780–1840 [ISSN 1748-0116], as of the Winter 2005 (no. 15) issue. Romantic Textualities will develop its role as a fully peer-reviewed journal and will continue to publish every Summer and Winter of each year.

     Romantic Textualities will carry three types of submitted publications:

    Articles we would be most interested in publishing include those addressing Romantic literary studies with an especial slant on book history, textual and bibliographical studies, the literary marketplace and the publishing world, and so forth. Submissions for articles (5,000–8,000 words) should be sent to the Editor (Mandal@cf.ac.uk).

    We also supply reports on ongoing research, in the form of author studies, snapshots of research, bibliographical checklists, and so on. This material is not peer-reviewed, but provides a useful platform for scholars to disseminate information about their collaborative or individual research projects. Submissions for reports should be sent to the Editor (Mandal@cf.ac.uk).

    As of Issue 15, we intend on carrying reviews of recent publications relating to Romantic literary studies. In the first instance, publishers of suitable texts or potential contributors should contact the Reviews Editor (KillickPT@cf.ac.uk).

     While the name and visual appearance of the journal will change to reflect its new function in Romantic-era studies, the critical focus on bibliography, textual scholarship, and print culture will remain the same—as the new title makes far more abundantly clear. Information about projects based within Cardiff University’s Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research will now be found solely on the Centre’s website (http://www.cf.ac.uk/encap/ceir). Romantic Textualities will continue to provide an archive of all previously published articles, including those that appeared under the Cardiff Corvey banner.

     In the first instance, Romantic Textualities will be accessible online @ http://www.cf.ac.uk/encap/romtext, but the editors are currently seeking a friendlier alias for future issues.
