Burns Chronicle 2014The Burns Chronicle is the main literary publication of The Robert Burns World Federation and has been in circulation since 1892.

The Chronicle is a unique collection of articles on Burns and Scottish literature and is well considered by academics and literary scholars as well as those passionate about Burns.

Our editor will be happy to receive articles on the above which may merit inclusion in our publication. Please send all copyright-free material to editor@rbwf.org.uk or chronicle@rbwf.org.uk

The literature committee is, at present, working on the digitisation of our entire back catalogue of Burns Chronicles which will build into one of the most comprehensive, searchable resources for Burns study in existence.

This will be the portal for this vital tool.

The Federation cordially invite individuals, clubs and educational bodies to consider making a donation toward this important resource. Whilst we have a very enthusiastic team, it is estimated that to achieve this in "hobby-mode" could take as long as fifteen years. Properly funded, it could be live before the end of 2015. Total cost of the programme is estimated to be around £25,000, including the purchase of specialist scanning equipment, which will continue to be of use to the Burns Community for years following this particular programme.
