Mediaeval Studies is the annual journal published by the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies. The journal was established in 1939 and from the outset its purpose has been the publication of research on the Middle Ages by scholars throughout the world, particularly research involving unedited manuscript and archival material.

Editorial Purview
Most volumes are divided into three sections: “Texts ” includes extensive editions with substantial introductions; “Articles” includes studies based on unedited or edited documents and texts and also includes studies of other monuments of medieval culture; “Mediaevalia” consists of notices or short articles on specific documents or topics. The journal includes no book reviews, and therefore the entire space of each volume can be devoted to editions and original research which make contributions of lasting significance for scholarship in the Middle Ages. By presenting scholarly editions of important medieval texts found only in manuscripts, Mediaeval Studies serves as a valuable resource for medievalists and other scholars in many countries; and through the publication of extensive studies in a wide spectrum of disciplines, the journal makes current research on the Middle Ages available to scholars in all areas of study.

Notes for Prospective Contributors
Prospective authors should send three unsigned, double-spaced printouts of each submission, or two printouts and an electronic copy, and photocopies of manuscript sources. Text and notes should be in a 12-point font. Mediaeval Studies conforms to The Chicago Manual of Style but omits publishers’ names in citations.

English and French are the primary languages of Mediaeval Studies, but articles written in other languages will also be considered. | Mediaeval Studies accepte des articles rédigés en anglais et en français et, exceptionnellement, en autres langues.

Mediaeval Studies does not accept books for review.

All correspondence regarding submissions should be addressed to Dr Jonathan Black, Editor of Mediaeval Studies, Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, 59 Queen’s Park Crescent East, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S 2C4.
