Historical Metallurgy relaunched as a platinum open access journal in January 2022. This means the journal is free to access and free to publish in. Although anyone can now access Historical Metallurgy for free, it is now clear that readers and authors are continuing to subscribe to the society. HMS membership is a declaration of support for open access and free-publication by a non-commercial organisation. Historical Metallurgy is positioned to be the premier outlet for research in any branch of historical- or archaeometallurgy.
The Historical Metallurgy Society is offering new membership bands to accompany the digital journal, to encourage the global community of historical metallurgists to take a stake in the success of the innovative venture. The new platform will achieve rapid publication of the work of researchers from around the world, whilst maintaining the Society’s long-standing reputation for high-quality publication and robust peer review.
