The JOURNAL FOR MARITIME RESEARCH (JMR) was inaugurated in 1999 as the first fully-online, peer-refereed journal in the field of historical maritime research. From 2011 the Journal will be re-launched online and in print, published twice-yearly by Routledge. There is now an exciting opportunity for scholars to contribute to the inaugural volume of the new JMR.
The JMR focuses on historical enquiry at the intersections of maritime, British and global history, an increasingly dynamic area of research. It seeks to champion a wide spectrum of innovative research on the maritime past. While the journal has a particular focus on the British experience, it aspires to position this within broad oceanic and international contexts, encouraging comparative perspectives and interdisciplinary approaches. The journal publishes research essays, and reviews around 15–20 new books each year across a broad spectrum of maritime history.
Essays of around 8000 words including references on any of the above subjects should be sent to the Editor, Dr Robert Blyth. For the inaugural Spring 2011 issue, submissions are required by 1 September 2010 but papers will also be accepted after this date for subsequent issues.
