Publishing Guidelines for Journals

In all journals I would like to publish information about research centres and particular projects. I am looking for articles by in-post scholars. But I also very keen to hear from post-graduates and post-doctoral students. Reviewers are vital and I would be glad to hear from scholars who are willing to take on this task.

Medieval History

This is the most successful of my journals and regularly consulted in the Bodleian Library. The datelines are 500-1500 but necessarily slops over the edges. Articles can be six to ten thousand words. If postgraduates or post-doctoral scholars would like to write about their research then three to five thousand words is acceptable. The format is different. The early editions were A4 and are now royale. If you would like a sample cover now I can send one. I can also send you a sample publication in October.

European History 1477-1715

The dates for this journal were fixed by the death of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy and an amalgam of the death of Louis XIV/transition to the Regency and the Hanoverian link with Great Britain. I welcome articles from European Scholars (in English) within this period and scholars who work on countries outside Europe but who are interested in links with their own country an d any country within it. Again - reviewers are welcome.

The John Foxe Bulletin

This journal looks to build on the enormous amount of research generated by the British Academy John Foxe Project based at the Institute of Historical Research at the University of Sheffield, (the then Director was Professor Mark Greengrass) a Project which was initially directed by my husband, Professor David Loades, with first-line support by the late Professor Sir Geoffrey Elton. Whilst Foxe lived and worked in the late sixteenth century but his work went on through the centuries. Sheffield aimed to provide the definitive edition in terms of a Gloss (look at the website!) and remove the influence of the flawed Victorian Cattley and Townsend version. I am looking for articles on Foxe on any period but also on religion in his time and reviewers

Eighteenth Century World 1688-1815

This journal looks for articles on a range of subjects which fall within these dates. 1688 marks the link between The House of Orange after the flight of James II and 1815 marks the end of old Europe, the fall of Napoleon and, perhaps, the new Europe.
