Call for Papers: 2016 Journal of the Bahamas Historical Society

The editorial board of the Journal of The Bahamas Historical Society is sending out a call for papers for the 2016 journal.

The deadline for submission of articles is September 1st 2016.

Following are the requirements for papers: The subject should be a historical topic on The Bahamas bringing to light new information or a new interpretation of topics of Bahamian interest. Short communications, book reviews, and profiles of Bahamian personalities are also welcome.

The article should be formatted using Chicago style with end-notes rather than footnotes.

The article should be between 10 and 15 pages, double spaced. Photographs, maps or other illustrations are welcome.

Articles should be submitted by e-mail to jalawlor@coralwave.com using a standard word processing programme such as Microsoft Word. A hard copy should also be sent to Jim & Anne Lawlor, Box N-1715, Nassau, Bahamas. 

The Editorial Committee has the right to edit the article.
The Editorial Committee has the right to reject the article.

Anne and Jim Lawlor, co editors.

We have 4 articles for consideration but would like two more.

Last year we published 400 copies of the Journal and they were mailed to paid up members, local schools and Universities, who deal in Caribbean Studies – the remainder sell for $10 each at the Museum and the Department of Archives.
