We accept texts in all medieval languages and genres. Ideally texts submitted to the GMS should come from previously untranscribed and untranslated digitized manuscripts available in the Public Domain. In some cases critical editions may be used to provide transcriptions. Translators using editions bear the responsibility for acquiring permissions.
