Our publications

Medieval Yorkshire

The Section’s annual journal ‘Medieval Yorkshire’ offers an outlet for the publication of research, amateur or professional, to Section members and non-members alike. It is issued free to Section members, and copies are also available for sale whilst stocks last contact the Editor.

When out of print, copies of Medieval Yorkshire and its predecessor ‘Sciant Presentes’ are available as free downloads.  Reports of many past lectures can be found in the Section’s blog archive.

Guidelines for contributions:

New contributors to the Journal are always welcome. Anyone who feels that their work may be of interest to our readers is cordially invited to contact the Editor at the earliest possible opportunity. A peer-reviewing process of the kind used for YAJ and other established academic journals is not in operation but it may be possible to arrange for someone to read and comment on a draft article on request.

The deadline for contributions is normally mid-September.  For further information, please keep an eye on the Section’s web pages and ‘blog’ or Contact the Editor.
