Mamluk Studies Review

Mamluk Studies Review, a journal that focuses on the study of the Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt and Syria (648-922/1250-1517), has now become an online open-access journal. Their latest issue, Volume 13, Issue 1, is now available as a PDF file at

Bruce Craig, editor of Mamluk Studies Review, made the decision to switch to an online version after the "financial situation at the University of Chicago has made it impracticable to continue producing MSR in conventional print format." There is no word yet if back issues of the journal will also be available online.

Bruce Craig also noted that he will be stepping down from the position of editor following the second issue of this year's journal, and Marlis Saleh of the University of Chicago will take over the position.
