Some interesting articles:

Chandler, Jean
A brief examination of warfare by Medieval urban militias in Central and Northern Europe

Abstract:
In the period roughly 1150 AD – 1500 AD, several of the urban communes of Central and Northern Europe coalesced into a fighting force which collectively played an increasingly important role in European warfare. For the historical fencing community, this is significant because a large number of the known fencing Masters have some association with the towns. The specific military role of the burgher is not well known outside of the realm of academic specialists, particularly in the English speaking world. This paper will seek to aggregate and summarize some of the key historical events where urban militias played a critical role. It will also include a review of the effectiveness, organization, tactics and strategic impact of urban militias in Lombardy, Flanders, Switzerland, the Rhineland, Saxony, Bohemia and Poland.
...
In the 13th Century, the militias of Wroclaw and Krakow played an important if not decisive role in the power struggles of the Piast dynasty, and Krakow played a critical role in defeating the last major Mongol invasion of Poland, marking a sharp decline in the scale and impact of their raids. These events are documented by Jan Długosz in period and by some modern academic specialists, most recently by Norman Davies and Roger Moorhouse in a detailed analysis of Wroclaw published in 2003.

It is a good thing that we have several new HEMA publications: for instance Matt Galas' MONUMENTA HISTORICA DIMICATORIA or Acta Periodica.

In Hungary Ars Ensis publishes a HEMA magazine called Kardlap, in Hungarian it is a nice pun - it means the flat of a blade, and also a magazine about swords. In April the 10th issue has been published. Despite the fact that this HEMA publication is in Hungarian, it might be interesting just to browse it.

Previous issues of Kardlap can be found & downloaded in pdf on Ars Ensis' homepage:

We really need the abstracts for Volume II to be posted - it's a pity to go to all the trouble of doing a peer-reviewed, academic-level publication but then handicap oneself by not setting out the abstracts for the current version. It was published in May, but the website STILL says "coming soon".
