Cambrian Medieval Celtic Studies appears twice yearly. The journal has an excellent reputation and provides an outstanding resource for students of Celtic Studies and anyone with an interest in Celtic topics. Articles are contributed by leading academics and are peer-reviewed before publication. CMCS volumes appear in Summer and Winter and typically contain 4-6 articles along with a review of recent books. CMCS is edited by Patrick Sims-Williams.
A year's subscription costs £10 (£30 for libraries) - a price which has remained unchanged since the journal's inception.
The journal is only available in print form; there are no plans for a digital version at present, but here is a sample to download as a pdf: CMCS 3 (Summer 1982) .
Back issues are available for all volumes, and can be purchased using our order form. A full table of contents for each volume can be found on the Corpus of Electronic Texts (CELT) website.
'The regularity and, for Celtic Studies journals, frequency of its publication, along with the high standards set by its editor, Patrick Sims-Williams, have ensured its success. Articles range across every discipline and through all the medieval Celtic languages, but the editor insists quite rightly that each piece be written so that any medievalist might understand it. For instances, all quotations from medieval languages (or from Greek or Latin) are translated. While the historical linguistic pieces cannot be evaluated by everyone, their lines of reasoning can be followed by most intelligent readers. In general, the various articles display a high degree of readability not always found in specialist journals.'
