Potential authors should contact the Honorary Editor at an early stage in the preparation of submissions for Medieval Archaeology. Papers are accepted in principle on the advice of an editorial committee and are subject to peer review. Notes for contributors can be found on the publisher’s website.
We welcome articles and shorter contributions that present novel interpretations, applications of an analytical method or present new findings (see Martyn Jope Award). As a guideline, normally papers will not be longer than 12,000 words including notes and bibliography, although there will be exceptional circumstances, including when a grant is available to support publication. A ‘shorter contribution’ will tend to be in the region of 5–7,000 words. (For items that are shorter than this, consider sending these to the Newsletter Editor; see below for details).
We also welcome offers of reports for the fieldwork highlights section and offers of reviews.
