Announcing Early Modern Literary Studies, a refereed journal
in electronic form which intends to serve both as a formal arena
for scholarly discussion and as an academic resource for
researchers in the area. Articles in EMLS will examine English
literature, literary culture, and language during the sixteenth
and seventeenth centuries from a variety of perspectives; well-
considered responses to published papers will also be published
as part of a Readers' Forum. Reviews in EMLS will evaluate
recent work in the area as well as academic tools of interest to
scholars in the field. Our Internet site will also gather and
maintain links to useful on-line resources.
EMLS (ISSN 1201-2459) will be published three times a year for
the on-line academic community by the University of British
Columbia's English Department, with the support of the
University's Library and Arts Computing Centre.
Our first issue will appear in Spring 1995.

EMLS will be available free of charge in hypertextual format
on the World Wide Web at


It will also be available in ASCII format for retrieval using

edziza.arts.ubc.ca /english/emls

Our site on the World Wide Web will be active, though still under
construction, as of December 1, 1994.

The EMLS Editorial Group is representative of the on-line
academic community as a whole and includes scholars with wide-
ranging interests and experience, from junior to well-established
senior academics.
