All submissions must be printed out from a word-processing program, double-spaced (including indented block quotations), with ample margins (no less than an inch on all sides). Any handwritten notations must be legible. Please do not justify the right margin, or use varying type sizes or variable line spacing, or insert extra space around paragraphs. Please paginate continuously throughout the manuscript and label with your name all pages of your submission, including pages with charts, maps, photos, etc. These should be designated as Figure 1, Appendix 1, Table 1, etc. Indicate in the body of the text where the graphics are to be placed (e.g., Figure 1 near here). While the project is under consideration, photocopies of illustrations are sufficient. Upon acceptance of the volume, authors and/or editors are responsible for providing any photos (black and white glossies or high-resolution scans) or reproductions and permission to reproduce them. Further specifics about preparing the final copy of the manuscript and a guide to MIP’s house style is available from our style sheet .
Medieval Institute Publications recognizes the importance and unique role of essay collections honoring the career of a distinguished scholar of medieval studies. Since such collections also present particular challenges for both editor and publisher, editors who wish MIP to consider such a project for publication should work with the managing editor from the early planning stages of the volume.
Submissions: The journal welcomes submissions on topics that relate to prosopography from late antiquity to the sixteenth century. "Prosopography" is defined both widely and inclusively to mean research that examines how individuals or groups used or created specific relationships that resulted in their accumulating power or influence. While prosopography has often been applied to the elite to trace networks of power or family lines, it can and has been applied to those who were marginalized or less powerful. Work on all areas and relevant aspects of the medieval world, including Islam and Byzantium, are welcome. Articles in the major European languages are invited and will be published in their original language. Guidelines for articles that have been accepted for publication in the journal appear below and under For Authors on the MIP website.
