Journal of the British Academy
The new online open-access Journal of the British Academy seeks to publish a conspectus of the state of scholarship across the British Academy’s disciplinary interests, its content derived from the Academy’s own lecture programme.
British Academy lecturesFor over 100 years, the British Academy has held public lectures which are both of significance to specialists, and accessible to scholars in different disciplines and to a broader intelligent public. The lectures cumulatively form a unique record of scholarship in the humanities and social sciences.
Following a major review, the subject coverage of the British Academy's lecture programme has been extended - a list of the various series of lectures contributing to the Journal can be found here.
PublicationTo provide wide access to the outputs of this renewed lecture programme, the British Academy is now launching this online Journal of the British Academy.
Articles will be published on this Journal website as downloadable PDF files. Each article will be posted once it is ready for publication. In some instances, a video or audio recording may stand as an alternative ‘record’ of a lecture.
Each 'volume' of the Journal will be composed of articles that have been posted to the Journal in the course of a calendar year.
(Lectures given up to 2011 have traditionally been published in the Proceedings of the British Academy series).
