Call for Papers

Newcomen welcomes papers for presentation at its meetings which are then subsequently published in the Journal as well as papers submitted just for publication.

Prospective authors should first download the notes for authors and then send a 300 word synopsis of the proposed paper to:

The Editor of The International Journal
The Newcomen Society
Science Museum
London SW7 2DD
editor.journal@newcomen.com

If the paper is accepted the author will be sent guidance notes to assist in its detailed preparation. Papers, which should be fully referenced and illustrated where appropriate, should not normally exceed approximately 8,000 words in length. However, shorter papers are welcome, and significantly longer papers may be published subject to editorial approval.

Papers are normally peer reviewed prior to publication.

Papers should not have been previously published or be on offer to another journal.

The copyright in papers read to and/or published by the Society is owned by the Society. Copyright in papers read but not subsequently published is returned to the author.
