Publishing Proposals

To submit a publication proposal for stand-alone editions, please download a copy of the IMC publishing proposal form here and return it to the Editorial and Publications Committee by e-mailing it to: publishingproposals at irishmanuscripts.ie. Proposals are reviewed by the Editorial and Publications Committee at their bi-monthly meetings and applicants will be contacted following the conclusion of the review process. In order to speed up the review process it is advisable to include sample transcribed text which best illustrates the source as well as your editorial apparatus.

Please note that IMC has a preference for brief, technical introductions addressing the manuscript provenance and a summary of its historical significance. Wider consideration of the subject area may be more appropriate for separate publication in a suitable learned journal.

GUIDELINES FOR THE SIZE OF SINGLE-VOLUME TEXTS: Introduction: 3,500–4,000 words; text: 40,000–120,000 words. These are guidelines only.

IMC is currently preparing editorial guidelines and a style sheet. In the interim, please follow the guidelines contained in Irish Historical Studies: rules for contributors when preparing citations in footnotes.

Submitting papers to Analecta Hibernica

Analecta Hibernica publishes transcriptions of original manuscript sources for Irish history. The manuscript text should be prepared as an annotated transcription of the original and should be accompanied by a brief technical introduction. The introduction should provide a context for the document being presented, locate it, describe its features, consider why it was prepared, assess what it says/contributes and should engage with other pertinent questions. The introduction usually concludes with a note describing the editorial conventions employed in presenting the manuscript document.

If you would like to submit a paper for consideration to the editor of Analecta Hibernica, IMC’s serial publication, please contact Professor James Kelly, School of History and Geography, DCU Drumcondra Campus, Dublin 9 (james.kelly at dcu.ie).
