All nominated papers must have been published between 1st January 2012 and 31st December 2013. Three hard copies of each nominated paper (as published, or print-outs in the case of electronic journals) must be sent to The Secretary, Malta Historical Society, 1 Dun Amatore Gambin Street, Santa Lucia, SLC 1410 by 30th May 2014.
