The Journal of British Studies

The Journal of British Studies is the official publication of the North American Conference on British Studies (NACBS). All subscribers to JBS automatically receive membership to the NACBS. The JBS has positioned itself as the critical resource for scholars of British culture from the Middle Ages through the present. Drawing on both established and emerging approaches, JBS presents scholarly articles and books reviews from renowned international authors who share their ideas on British society, politics, law, economics, and the arts. In 2005 (Vol. 44), the journal merged with the NACBS publication Albion, creating one journal for NACBS membership.

The general Editors of the Journal of British Studies are Sandra den Otter and Jeff Collins, of Queen's University in Canada.
