JAMS-BRILL!
#1
After a long period of negotiations (and quiet), Brill has finally given us the go. That means that the Journal of Ancient Military Studies is going to be published with one of the most prestigious academic publishing houses.
Good news indeed!

Congratulations Jasper! Twenty years ago, I founded a little journal for students at the Amsterdam Free University. I fondly remember the appearance of our first issue. That was only a student's project. I can imagine your joy today, when you received the "go" for for a real journal. You will love the smell of printer's ink in the morning.

Congratulations Jasper! Let me be the first (or at any rate the next) person to join the list of subscribers. I'll send you a PM.
How is the content of the first issue looking so far? Also, if the proposed RAT conference happens and any truly worthwhile papers are presented would there be scope for publishing them in JAMS, as JRMES has published papers from RoMEC conferences in the past?

Hi Jasper,

That is fantastic news! Dare I ask if the things accepted are still accepted (I apologise for the shameless self interest) Confusedhock:

Cheers

Add my name as well Jasper. Maybe you could post subscribers info on the site (as it becomes available?) and congratulations, you deserve this shot!

Hi Murray,
Yes, accepted is accepted. But if you want to update it and improve it, that'll be fine :wink:
The conference & JAMS: yes, that is a possibility, provided the papers are approved for publication by our reviewers, because JAMS is going to be a peer-reviewed journal.
Subscription information: watch this space.

By the way, it is probably going to be at least 9 months to a year for the first issue to appear.
Greets!

Does anyone have any good suggestions for a domain name for JAMS?
The obvious ones, jams.com, .org, etc are taken, sadly and journalofancientmilitarystudies.com is a bit too long, methinks.

Ave Jasper,

Congratulations from me too.

How about jo-jams.com or joejams.com?

I'm sure you can puzzle out what jo or joe stands for?
