Articles for the Journal are mostly written by the Society’s own members but articles from non-members are most welcome too. The PDF will give you a good idea of the type of article that has found its way into the Journal over the years.

Major articles should not normally exceed 4,000 words but we are more than happy to publish shorter articles too.
