Articles should not exceed 3000 words but maybe considerably shorter. They may be submitted either by email to, or by post to Alan Brown, 28 Wytham Street, Oxford, OX1 4TS. The cover page should bear the title of the paper, the name and address of the author (if at all possible with an email address) and number of words.

We try to make a preliminary assessment of publication potential within three months of receipt, although articles may then require further consultation with referees at the Editor’s discretion.


Footnotes and References

Please keep notes to a minimum. If you wish to include notes, gather them into a notes section at the end of the article.



The Reviews Editor encourages new reviewers for the Journal. Review articles can be up to 1500 words long, but short reviews of less than 350 words are preferred.

Due to the large numbers of books for review, we cannot guarantee to publish all reviews, and those published may, in some cases, be delayed, affected by considerations of topic and publisher. Reviews should be marked for the ‘Reviews Editor’, and addressed to: Dr Zenon Stavrinides, 8 Ganners Mount, Leeds LS13 2PE, U.K. E-mail:
