The Shandean in new online format in 2024

The final paper issue of The Shandean was printed in November 2022. The journal will nonetheless continue to be published in the future, but as an online-only journal which retains the same structure, outlook, and unique appeal as its paper predecessor. There will be no 2023 issue, but a double issue in the new online format will appear in November 2024.

Plans for an appropriate online outlet for The Shandean are still currently underway, but readers will be informed of their outcome in due course.

In the meantime, please send any queries or submissions for articles or notes to be considered by the editors for peer review to:
