Unfortunately BISI does not yet have an online publication deal for Iraq (though we're working on it! news soon, I hope). Fortunately, though, it's now easier than ever to join BISI online and to get a copy of the journal that way.

Back issues are available online through JSTOR (with a five year moving wall).

If you're interested in submitting an article to be considered for publication in Iraq, please read the instructions for authors on how to prepare your manuscript and how the peer-review process works. If your work is (part-)funded by a UK research council, rest assured that Iraq is committed to complying with Research Councils UK's new Policy on Open Access to Research Outputs--again, more news soon.
