Aims & Scope
Transactions of the Burgon Society is the annual peer-reviewed journal of The Burgon Society. From its first edition in 2001 until its fourth edition in 2004, it was called The Burgon Society Annual, but since 2005 has held its present title. The Burgon Society was founded in 2000 in response to a growing interest in the subject of academical dress and to promote the study of academical dress. It is named after Dean Burgon, the only person to have a shape of academical hood named after him.
