Genealogy is a scholarly, peer-reviewed Journal in our field, produced by international academic publishers MDPI (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/genealogy). Dr Bruce Durie is one of the Founding Editorial Board members, and has agreed to edit a Special Issue: Heraldry and Coats of Arms.
As an active scholar in this field, you are invited to submit a proposal for an article of interest to the academic and interest-group communities worldwide.
Genealogy follows the Open Access pay-to-publish, free-to-read formula now common across all academic disciplines. However, the publication fee is to be waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted in 2018.
Those who wish to submit to this Special Issue should first send a short Statement of Interest to the Guest Editor Dr. Bruce Durie by the end of June 2018, with a brief description of the planned manuscript: email [email protected]
Bearing in mind that this publication will reach a different audience from those who attend Heraldic conferences or read the literature produced by Heraldic Societies etc., there is an opportunity to expand the scope away from the more traditional targets.
Some potential areas of focus might include the following, although all submissions are welcome and encouraged:
- The Politics of Heraldry and the uses of Arms for political purposes
- The concept of ‘Nobility’ in different heraldic jurisdictions
- The Sociology of Heraldry – do class and status matter?
- Adherence to Heraldic Law in jurisdictions with no Heraldic Authorities
- Historic Heraldry
- Education for Heraldry
- Is Heraldry merely “the floral border of History” or does it have a more meaningful place in scholarship?
- Recent changes to Heraldic Law and Practice in Scotland (or indeed elsewhere)
In addition, anyone will to act as a Reviewer for submitted papers is welcome to be in touch.
There are general Instructions for Authors at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/genealogy/instructions
