Brief Chronicles is a new open source, interdisciplinary journal of authorship studies.The journal uses the Open Journal Systems content management system, created and supported by the Public Knowledge Project. The journal is double-blind peer-reviewed by a growing group of international experts (currently 12) with terminal degrees in fields relevant to the authorship controversy.
While guided by an editorial policy which recognizes the great strengths of the case for the earl of Oxford’s authorship of the Shakespearean canon, the journal welcomes submissions on a wide range of early modern topics, written from a variety of premises.
Managing editor Gary Goldstein and the general editor (myself) are particularly pleased to be working with such an exceptional list of editorial board members (which we hope to expand in the coming weeks), whose bios and qualifications you can read from the BC “Editorial Board” page.
While Shakespeare’s Bible will remain my own personal blog site for developing materials about the de Vere Bible, Brief Chronicles, published on an annual basis, will continue for the foreseeable future to provide online scholars, teachers, and students with samples of the best authorship/ Oxfordian scholarship available.
Brief Chronicles will also follow Peter Finley Dunne’s dictum to “comfort the afflicted…and afflict the comfortable.”
Those who are overly comfortable in unexamined orthodox belief, take note.
