We are always on the lookout for new and original articles, and if you are interested in writing for Morgannwg, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the joint editors, Jeff Childs (email
firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tony Hopkins (email email@example.com) to discuss the proposal. The guidelines below should be followed throughout the article.
Guidelines for Contributors
All articles submitted should
be typed or computer-printed, double-spaced, on one side of A4 paper,
with a wide left-hand margin. Pages should be numbered consecutively. Two copies of the article are requested by the editors.
Notes and references should be
numbered sequentially and typed separately from the text at the end of
the article. They should be kept to a minimum and contain specific
references rather than amplification of the text to which they refer.
It is recommended that articles
do not exceed 8,000 words, although somewhat longer contributions may
be accepted at editorial discretion.
Once an article has been
accepted for publication, and is in its final form, it must be sent to
the editors electronically or on disk. The disk should incorporate all
editorial and author’s amendments and be accompanied by a
printout.Contributors should retain a back-up copy of both disk and
printout. All text files should be provided in Microsoft Word format
and images should be provided in either JPEG, PDF or TIF files at
Contributors should consult the previous issue of Morgannwg for conventions employed. Particular attention is drawn to the following:
Short quotations within
running text should be in single quotation marks (double for quotes
within quotes). Longer quotations should be indented without quotation
marks with a line space before and after.
Words which are to appear in italics should be underlined if the manuscript is submitted in typescript.
Dates should be expressed
thus: 1 May 1750; Saturday 13 March 1999; the 1860s; the twelfth
century (but a twelfth-century manuscript); 1884-5; 1912-13. But in
headings the unabbreviated form of years (e.g. 1720-1786) is more
Numbers up to ninety-nine
should be written in words, unless they are statistical, part of a list
of numbers, or percentages. Numbers at the beginning of sentences
should always be written in words.
Notes accompanying the text should come at the end of the article and not as footnotes to the page.
The use of capital letters should be kept to a minimum in the text.
Bibliographical references in footnotes should be given in the following formats:
Books: Glanmor Williams, Wales and the Reformation (Cardiff, 1997), 86.
Article in edited volume: Deirdre Beddoe, ‘Images of Welsh Women’, in T. Curtis (ed.), Wales: the Imagined Nation (Bridgend, 1986), 227-38.
Article in a journal: Kenneth O. Morgan, ‘The New Liberalism and the challenge of Labour: the Welsh experience, 1885-1929’, Welsh History Review, VI, No. 3 (1973).
Unpublished thesis: Joanna Martin, ‘The landed Estate in Glamorgan, circa 1660-1760’ (unpublished University of Cambridge PhD thesis, 1978).
Archives [hereafter GA], Ewenny Collection DE 529; National Library of
Wales [hereafter NLW], Penrice and Margam MS 5732.
A list of standard
abbreviations of institutions and publications can be included at the
end of the article and those abbreviations used consistently throughout
the endnotes. Please note also that ibid. and op. cit. must be in italics.
It may be necessary to charge contributors for late amendments made by them at proof stage.
Copyright of articles published in Morgannwg is held jointly by the individual contributor and Glamorgan History Society.
