U.S. Studies Online (www.usso.uk) is the home of original research, book and event reviews, and other engaging content for all scholars working within American Studies. Affiliated with the British Association for American Studies (BAAS), the largest community and scholarly network of American Studies researchers in the UK, USSO acts as a launchpad for both new ideas and scholars alike.
For those beginning their journey into academic publishing, USSO offers a responsive, respectful, and prompt peer-review process. For those already established within the academy, USSO continues to uphold excellent standards of research publication and maintains relationships and networks across nations and disciplines.
At U.S. Studies Online, we’re interested in working with graduate students, early career researchers, and scholars across the spectrum of American Studies, promoting their original research as well as
sharing events, reviews, and other related material in the field. Our accessible style and
short-format content attracts a wide readership, which comprises both specialists and
non-specialists and should factor into all pitches and articles submitted.
The editorial team at USSO are friendly, respectful, and always curious to hear new ideas
and forge new relationships within the American Studies community. We source and
produce exciting, varied content that includes: research posts, careers and professional
development advice, collaborative special featured blog series, book reviews and event
reviews, an online, real-time monthly #USSOBOOKHOUR talk, interviews,
“scholars across borders” travel blogs and an interactive calendar that provides
comprehensive up-to-date information on UK-based and international American and
Canadian Studies events, exhibitions, funding deadlines, calls for papers, job vacancies
