The BNS Research Note Blog

The BNS Research blog provides an easy method for numismatists to disseminate short-form research, of a less formal character than Journal articles.

Previously there has been a shortage of national forums for short research focused numismatic publications for contributions such as the discovery of a new die-link, or a slight permutation of an existing type, which in the past might have been put on record in Spink’s Numismatic Circular, or the Seaby Coin and Medal Bulletin, but which are too brief to warrant publication in a larger-scale print journal such as the British Numismatic Journal.

It is intended that research notes do not normally exceed 1500 words of text plus illustrations and could be much shorter. It is recommended that authors take full advantage of the potential of the internet and make use of images and weblinks as appropriate.

The content of articles for the blog should be within the remit of the Society’s interests: ‘Coins, medals, jettons and paper money of the British Isles, the Commonwealth and other territories that have been subject to British rule’.  It should not be a venue for advertising, or simply revelling in the contents of a collection, but could cater for several
types of short research publication. Contributions are open to all (including authors who are not members of the Society). There is no limitation on the frequency of posts.
