Deadlines for submissions are a month before the edition. For example, the August edition submission deadline in the 1st July. Traditionally an edition is made in February, May, August and November, therefore submission deadlines are the 1st of January, April, July, and October, respectively.

However, submissions are accepted at anytime, just don’t expect them to be included in the next edition if you submit the article within the month prior to the next edition.


Cockatrice is published at least twice a year, and welcomes articles on all manner of arts and sciences in the Medieval period (600 – 1600 A.D.) relevant to a S.C.A. audience.

Authors should address their articles to the editor:

Text should be saved in Microsoft Word document format (.DOC or .DOCX) or rich text format (.RTF).

Pictures should be included in the document, and compressed (as not to compromise quality) to limited file size. Unusual fonts should be embedded in the document.

Please submit your articles in English and as concise as possible. Please use standard fonts for text , i.e.  Times, Times New Roman or Arial, and Symbol font for Greek letters. This will avoid inadvertent character substitutions that may make it difficult to read.

Further information can been obtained from reading the F.A.Q. page.
