JOURNAL | ITEMS FOR REVIEW | NEWSLETTER | NOTES FOR CONTRIBUTORS AND STYLE GUIDE
The Association publishes an annual refereed journal: the Journal of the Australian Early Medieval Association (ISSN 1449-9320).
The journal publishes papers, short notes and reviews relating to all aspects of the early medieval period from late antiquity and the end of the Roman empire to about the end of the eleventh century. JAEMA welcomes papers on historical, literary, archaeological, cultural and artistic themes, particularly interdisciplinary papers and those that make an innovative and significant contribution to the understanding of the early medieval world and stimulate further discussion.
Papers are expected to be clearly argued and well documented, previously unpublished and accessible to non-specialist readers. Papers and short notes should be submitted to the editor. Prospective contributors should follow the style guide and notes.
All published papers are peer reviewed in a double-blind process, usually by two appropriate specialists. The final approval for acceptance of a paper is the editor's in the light of the reviewers' comments and subsequent authorial revision where required. The editor reserves the right to refuse submissions.

Items for Review
The Association has arranged to receive copies of recent books to be reviewed for the journal: we will list titles as they become available to us. Members are invited to choose titles from the list that they are interested in reviewing in exchange for a free copy. If you have other specific books or publishers you would like us to contact for review copies, please contact Darius von Guettner at email@example.com. Unsolicited reviews cannot be accepted. Reviews are accepted from any interested member - it is not necessary to be a specialist. For an example of the type of review sought, see any recent copy of Parergon. Reviews may be edited for style and length: please refer to the style guide.
In an effort to broaden the reviews section of JAEMA we are currently seeking reviewers for foreign language publications. Members who are competent to review books in modern languages other than English are asked to contact the reviews editor - Darius von Guettner firstname.lastname@example.org - and nominate the language(s) that they are able to read. These reviewers will be contacted when books in their nominated language(s) become available.
For details regarding preparation of reviews see the style guide.
The next list books available for review will be circulated in February 2012.
