Comitatus: A Journal of Medieval & Renaissance Studies--"Published under the auspices
of the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Comitatus is devoted to publishing articles by new scholars, either working toward doctoral degrees or having completed such work within the previous three years. It also maintains a tradition of gathering work from across disciplines, with a special interest in articles that have an interdisciplinary scope. Its list of subscribers includes research libraries throughout the United States and abroad."
Medieval Review, formerly The Bryn Mawr Medieval Review, allows the searcher
to Browse The Medieval Review as a whole or to Search the Reviews, which are excellent
and timely. "Since 1993, The Medieval Review (TMR; formerly the Bryn Mawr Medieval Review) has been publishing reviews of current work in all areas of Medieval Studies, a field it interprets as broadly as possible. The electronic medium allows for very rapid publication of reviews, and provides a computer searchable archive of past reviews, both of which are of great utility to scholars and students around the world."
Interactive Media--"ReSoundings is an interactive hypermedia periodical in the
humanities. Readers are invited to participate in the forum by adding their comments (utilizing print, graphic, music, and other text formats) to the discussions initiated by the peer-reviewed articles." General editor is indefatigable Bonnie Miller.
Online Articles Index: Medieval History is part of Stefan Blaschke’s History Journals Guide for the World Wide Web
