The Watsonian: The Journal of the John H. Watson Society
The journal of the Society, The Watsonian, aspires to one day become a journal with a small portion of the greatness of the Baker Street Journal or The Sherlock Holmes Journal. The Watsonian concerns itself with Traditionalist and Revisionist articles concerning John H. Watson, M.D.
The Watsonian is available to members and non-members of the Society.
Members receive a subscription as part of their membership dues.
Individual issues may be purchased in the Society Shop.
The editorial policy of The Watsonian is to have few editorial policies. The journal is open-minded and receptive to thoughtful as well as amusing articles. As always, By-Laws 1 and 2 must be honoured and good taste must be, at all times, in evidence. It is the intent of the Society to provide a journal for first-time as well as experienced writers who seek to expand The Game and have fun doing so.
The Society welcomes scholarly papers, articles, original fiction, miscellanea or other submissions. One need not be an experienced or academic writer; some of our most engaging articles come from individuals with a love for the writing and appreciation for the pleasures gained over the years.There is always room for your research, thoughts, ideas and creativity. The Society is an inclusive group; we desire interested Watsonians to take part and to approach the Society with innovative projects. Whether you are a first time author is not important; that you try is what counts.
The deadline for the October Fall issue is August 1 and the deadline for the April Spring issue is February 15. Late submissions will be considered if possible.
Submissions should be up-to-date Word documents and sent via email attachment to: firstname.lastname@example.org
