The Oxfordian

Welcome to The Oxfordian, the peer-reviewed journal published annually during the summer/fall by the Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship (formerly published by the Shakespeare Oxford Society). The Oxfordian is a professional publication that features papers providing in-depth coverage of issues of importance to Shakespeare scholars. The Oxfordian welcomes submission of learned essays on three interrelated topics:

  • Important literary works of the Early Modern Period in English literature
  • Shakespeare studies
  • Shakespeare authorship issues

The Oxfordian, published since 1998, is “the best American academic journal covering the authorship question,” according to William Niederkorn, formerly of the New York Times, in his review of Contested Will. In Shakespeare Beyond Doubt (2013), Stratfordian scholar Prof. Stuart Hampton-Reeves adds that under Michael Egan’s editorship  (2009-Present), The Oxfordian “deserves credit . . . for insisting on a higher standard of academic rigour.”
