An Invitation to Publish with Vincentian Heritage



By way of introduction, my name is Nathaniel Michaud and I serve as Publications Director for the DePaul University Vincentian Studies Institute. We publish the journal Vincentian Heritage, as well as a scholarly monograph series and a variety of special publication projects.


For those who may not be familiar with us, the Institute is dedicated to promoting research and a living interest in the historical and spiritual heritage of Saint Vincent de Paul and Saint Louise de Marillac, the patrons of the wide-ranging Vincentian Family including the Congregation of the Mission, the Daughters of Charity, the Ladies of Charity, the Sisters of Charity, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and a number of other congregations, communities, and lay movements who share a common dedication to serving those in need.


If you are involved in such research, and are seeking an outlet for possible publication, I would like to take this opportunity and invite you to consider submitting your work to the V.S.I.


Vincentian Heritage welcomes manuscripts, poetry, and other expressions of Vincentian themes that meet the publication criteria.  All articles should relate directly to topics of Vincentian interest, and be researched and documented in a scholarly fashion.  Ordinarily, articles should not exceed thirty typewritten pages and should be submitted as a Word Document twelve months prior to anticipated publication.  Publication is subject to the approval of our Editorial Board.


We would also welcome recommendations you might have regarding possible article reprints or translations, works you may have found in your research which you feel deserve a wider audience.


Finally, if you are working on a book-length manuscript the V.S.I. would certainly welcome proposals which fit within the parameters of our monograph series or our special publications.

We thank you for considering this possibility and hope to hear from you.
