The British Art Journal is published three times a year. It was founded in Autumn 1999, with two issues in the first volume, but there have been three in each volume since then. The volumes appear annually, although in practice the issues may run over into a following calendar year, which does not affect the subscription entitlement of three issues per subscription.
