Marginalia -- The Journal of the Medieval Reading Group at Cambridge

Contributing an Article

The Marginalia committee will consider articles and book reviews on any aspect of the Middle Ages in England, and from any discipline. For the purposes of clarification, we consider the Middle Ages to encompass the years between 500 and 1500 AD, but will consider material that falls slightly outside these parameters if we feel it is particularly relevant to the study of medieval England. We will not consider editions or translations of text unless they are submitted as part of the relevant material for an article, nor will we publish any material that has been published previously (although we are happy to consider articles that have been presented as papers in conferences or seminars). Although we are happy to glance over brief abstracts before the final submission deadline, we will only consider articles that are in their final and complete form, barring any changes that our editors and readers may suggest before publication.
