Call for papers for a new journal, Vulcan: The International Journal of the Social History of Military Technology. Edited by Barton C. Hacker and published by Brill, Vulcan first hit the stands in June 2013. That initial issue is available free from the Brill website: www.Brill.com/vulcan. The website also tells you how to subscribe and includes information for prospective authors in the form of a stylesheet, a sample list of works cited, and guidelines for citing archival material.
Vulcan is a peer-reviewed, international, interdisciplinary journal which aims to cover all aspects of the social and cultural contexts of military invention and innovation. It asks authors to consider how social and cultural environments within the military itself or in the larger society affect military technological change. And the indispensable corollary: how changing military technology affects other aspects of society and culture. The goal is articles that address military technology as both agent and object of social change.
All articles are in English. No word limit has been set, but 5000 to 8000 words may be considered a reasonable target. Illustrations are strongly encouraged, but footnotes or endnotes are not; Vulcan uses the (author date) form of citation in the text with a list of works cited. Be guided by the maxim: if itís important, it belongs in the text; if not, discard it. All these matters and others are discussed in the stylesheet and related material. Submit articles to firstname.lastname@example.org and Vulcan@uvic.ca.
