    Hi

    I'm pleased to announce that the above titled Journal will be an Open access publication (aka Free)

    As the Home Page blurb states:-
    The BJMH is a pioneering Open Access, peer-reviewed journal that brings high quality scholarship in military history to an audience beyond academia.

    Let's hope it's around for many a decade and that it is but a flag bearer for other such open access Journals
