Write for FORUM YORKSHIRE — We'll help you spread the word!
Thank you for considering to write for the FORUM journal. FORUM has an extensive and diverse readership that spans many and varied organisations, local societies, universities, voluntary and educational communities and commercial practices, as well as individuals and families—within and far beyond our county.
Your presence in this refreshed journal lets you showcase your work and achievements to an audience who care passionately about archaeology and heritage—through recording, investigation, preservation and evangelism.
FORUM is our flagship annual journal where community, independent, professional, museum, commercial and academic archaeologists (and practitioners in complementary fields) can report their research or extend discussions about archaeological and allied issues. A range of contributions is invited including long (4000–8000 word) or short (2000–4000 word) articles, shorter notes (up to 2000 words), site summaries, and preliminary or full research fieldwork and project reports. Longer papers may be considered and requests should be submitted to the editor. We also accept reviews of books or articles related to the archaeology and heritage landscape of Yorkshire.
Contributions are welcome from students, voluntary and community-based groups, independent practitioners, providers of training and education, commercial organisations, museums and academics. FORUM is dated and published retrospectively for the prior calendar year and distributed around February to subscribed members.
The geographic scope of this journal is Yorkshire including areas
that were part of Yorkshire prior to the 1974 boundary re-organisation. Contributions
on archaeology which is not located in Yorkshire (or its previous boundaries)
but is immediately adjacent or pertinent to it may be considered. Authors are
requested to contact the editor prior to writing such an article. Contributions may be on any period of archaeology and the human
past relevant to the geographic scope outlined above.
Call for Papers 2016

Guidelines for Contributors
It is a challenge to list all specifications and so, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the editor.
You may also want to consider contributing dynamic and colourful photographs for inclusion on the journal covers? Beyond archaeology as the central theme, images that reflect a broad spectrum of projects, diversity across age, gender and background, and inclusivity through community projects, educational activities — even re-enactments — all make great candidates.
