According to Wikipedia, Ron Tanner said in 1994 that Gettysburg Review stories “are clearly in the mainstream of contemporary American fiction—you will not find ‘experimental’ work in the Gettysburg Review.” The journal itself says, “Aesthetically, we are open to most styles and approaches and are always interested in stories, whether more traditional or experimental, that are off-beat, penetrating, and surprising.” They go on to say, “We do not publish genre fiction—mystery, crime, science fiction, fantasy, and the like—but are certainly not opposed to considering work that self-consciously employs the tropes of formulaic writing for more sophisticated literary ends”—even though they’ve had stories anthologized in Best American Mystery Stories.
