The Scottish History Society would like to invite publication proposals. Since 1886, the Society has been publishing scholarly editions of previously unpublished primary source material relating to the history of Scotland and the Scots, broadly defined. Proposals are welcome on all periods and aspects of Scottish History. The Society publishes both full-length volumes and Miscellany volumes consisting of several shorter pieces, with considerable flexibility about length. Editions include full academic introductions, are peer-reviewed and REF-eligible. Three years after publication they are also made available digitally to a wide readership through the National Library of Scotland’s digital resource collection.
The Society considers proposals for both full volumes and Miscellany pieces on an ongoing basis, but at this time would particularly encourage proposals for Miscellany entries. Proposals submitted by 30 June 2017 should be eligible for consideration at the Autumn meeting of the SHS Council meaning that decisions would be communicated to proposers by the end of November 2017.
Postgraduate students and Early Career Researchers may also wish to consider submitting an entry for the Rosebery Prize – details can be found here: http://scottishhistorysociety.com/the-rosebery-prize/.
Further details on submitting proposals can be found at http://scottishhistorysociety.com/digitised-publications/publication-proposals/, and anyone interested in submitting a proposal is warmly encouraged to contact the Publications Secretary, John McCallum (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss further.
