Publications

The society publishes The Mariner’s Mirror, the world’s leading peer-reviewed journal in the field of maritime history. First published in 1911, it is an unrivalled repository of scholarship covering all periods, nations and maritime themes. We also publish Topmasts, a quarterly magazine providing lively articles and unequalled information about events worldwide, not just those in which the society is involved. Electronically, the society publishes the Mariner’s Mirror podcast, the leading podcast on global maritime history, and has an active presence across social media. The society’s free forum, accessible on this website, provides a space in which researchers of all levels of expertise, from university professors to those researching their family history, can request information and exchange ideas.
