Our Journal is published twice a year, in the spring and autumn. Each issue has a wide variety of articles, nearly all written by Circle members.
A searchable Digital version of the back catalogue is available to members.
A selection of articles in recent issues gives an indication of topics that have been covered. The committee and the editors may make suggestions but contents of each Journal are mainly the result of the topics members have chosen to write about.
