In February 2014, the journal started operating with two editorial offices: a permanent MSA office and a permanent office at the University of York. It is published quarterly in January, April, September, and November by Johns Hopkins University Press. The journal is also available in digital form through library databases such as Project Muse.

Each issue includes a section of thematic essays, multi-work review essays, individual book reviews, and a list of "recent books of interest." The journal occasionally has guest-edited or special issues, with a series of related essays on one topic. The journal has also launched an "Out of the Archives" series, in which out-of-print and neglected works of modernism are reintroduced to its readership.

The current editors-in-chief are Debra Rae Cohen (University of South Carolina) and Christopher Bush (Northwestern University). Previous editors include Ann Ardis (University of Delaware), Cassandra Laity (Drew University), and Jeffrey Schnapp (Harvard University).

In 2003, Modernism/modernity won the Phoenix Award from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals.[1]
