The Journal of the Printing Historical Society welcomes submissions of scholarly articles on all aspects of the subject, including (but not limited to) the following: the history of the processes and mechanics of printing of all kinds; the personnel, skills and institutions of the printing industry; the design and manufacture of, and trade in, printers’ type and machinery; illustration and printmaking processes; typographical design; the products of the press (books, periodicals, ephemera and prints); the substrates of print (paper, parchment etc.); bookbinding and the book-trade; the impact of printing on society and on related crafts and professions, including engineering, calligraphy, manuscript-production, publishing and graphic art (and vice versa); and archives and documents in printing history. Reviews and review articles on recent monographs in these subjects are also welcome.

Articles usually range between 2,000 and 8,000 words, but longer papers can also be accommodated and are particularly welcomed for the Third Series (running from 2020). Illustration is encouraged, and the Journal includes full colour images when appropriate. The Journal is peer-reviewed, each paper being rendered anonymous and read by at least two scholars in the field before acceptance for publication.

The New Series is published biannually, in the summer and winter. The deadlines for submission are 1 April (for summer) and 1 September (for winter). The Third Series will be published annually in the autumn, the deadline for contributions being 1 June.
