Suggestions for articles

The Journal publishes high-quality articles – that are in line with the Journal’s aims and article types as described the Journal of the British Academy's Aims and Scope – written by those who have been supported through any of the British Academy’s programmes and activities, and by Fellows of the British Academy. Suggestions for possible future articles from Academy-supported researchers and Fellows should be sent to: [email protected]. Articles that do not have such an association with the Academy are ineligible for consideration: if you are unsure whether the article you would like to suggest is eligible, please email [email protected], explaining how it is associated with the British Academy.

The Journal publishes articles that arise from the flagship programme of British Academy Lectures. Those who speak as part of the Lectures programme will be contacted by the Editors, typically after the lecture event, about the possibility of publishing an article in the Journal, and what form such an article might take.

The article text should be emailed to [email protected]
