From the African American Review guidelines:

African American Review (AAR) is a refereed journal that publishes critical essays on African American literature, film, fine and performing arts, and culture generally; interviews; "Forgotten Manuscripts" features; poetry; fiction; and book reviews.

Authors must submit all manuscripts via Manuscript FastTrack. Our documentation style follows the Third Edition of the MLA Style Manual & Guide to Scholarly Publishing. For author purposes, this will contain the same information as found in the Seventh Edition of the MLA Handbook, which authors may find more accessible. These manuals encourage the use of intratextual documentation and mandate the inclusion of Works Cited lists at the manuscript's end. Manuscripts that do not follow MLA style are subject to immediate rejection. Also, manuscripts that are not paginated will be rejected. Authors must remove any identifying information from the submission, including cover pages, headers, bylines, etc. AAR does not consider previously published works or simultaneous submissions.
