Most volumes are divided into three sections: “Texts” includes extensive editions with substantial introductions; “Articles” includes studies based on unedited or edited documents and texts and also includes studies of other monuments of medieval culture; “Mediaevalia” consists of notices or short articles on specific documents or topics. The journal includes no book reviews, and therefore the entire space of each volume can be devoted to editions and original research which make contributions of lasting significance for scholarship in the Middle Ages. By presenting scholarly editions of important medieval texts found only in manuscripts, Mediaeval Studies serves as a valuable resource for medievalists and other scholars in many countries; and through the publication of extensive studies in a wide spectrum of disciplines, the journal makes current research on the Middle Ages available to scholars in all areas of study.
