The first issue was in 1981 and since then the journal has published many frequently cited articles. All submissions are considered carefully by the Editorial Board. The latest issue (vol. 67 No 2 2015) dedicated to the Memory of the Late Donald Hawes, the eminent Victorian critic and scholar, who served on its editorial advisory board since its inception, contains Michelle Eisenberg's "George Henry Lewes's 1869 Diary and Journal. A Transcription and Annotation of Unpublished Holographs." This includes an extensive "Introduction" that encompasses discussion of the relationship between the Diary and Journal and the writing of Middlemarch. Appendices list "Books read by George Henry Lewes in 1869”, a listing of Lewes and George Eliot's "Friends, Acquaintances and Visitors" during 1869, followed by extensive annotation of the Diary and Journal. Claudia Stevens' "A New Opera: Middlemarch in Spring"an account of "the new chamber opera ...by composer Alan Shearer on a libretto by Claudia Stevens."

The over 150-page issue concludes with two reviews: K.K. Collins' review of Rebecca Mead's My Life in Middlemarch. Kathleen McCormack's review of June Skye Szirotny's George Eliot's Feminism: "The Right to Rebellion."
