Aims and Scopes
Pons Aelius, published bi-annually, is designed to be a platform for postgraduate students and early career researchers to present their research to a new, wider audience. It seeks to include work related to all areas and periods of history and archaeological study. The journal’s theme is decided by the editorial board with the intention to match current themes relevant to current academic interests. It aims to be as inclusive as possible, with themes being chosen which will appeal to a broad range of researchers. As part of this inclusive ethos, we also encourage MA and non-PhD postgraduates to submit papers. Our editorial team distributes a ‘call for papers’ and papers are selected for inclusion based on their merit and the appropriateness to the annual theme. The journal is geared towards both academic and public readership. As such, all articles included in each edition include contextual information and avoid specialist terminology (unless clearly defined).
Pons Aelius does not accept repeats/variations of already published articles and does its utmost to tackle plagarism (though it does not possesses specialist software to do so). Submissions must be the authors own work and feature a degree of originality. Questions regarding the research of particular papers included in the journals should be directed to the authors. The contact details of the author are always included at the head of the paper.
