British Art Studies: announcing a new online journal
Call for Submissions
Deadline for the first issue is March 31, 2015
The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and the Yale Center for British Art are pleased to announce their collaboration on a new online, open access and peer-reviewed journal. The aim of British Art Studies is to provide an innovative space for new research and scholarship of the highest quality on all aspects of British art, architecture and visual culture in their most diverse and international contexts. The journal will reflect the dynamic and broad ranging research cultures of the Paul Mellon Centre and the Yale Center for British Art, as well as the wider field of studies in British art and architecture today.
The editors are keen to encourage submissions that will make the most of the journal’s online format and want to publish articles that propose visually stimulating ways of presenting art historical research. British Art Studies will be one of the few completely open access journals in the field of art history, providing a vital forum for the growing debate about digital scholarship, publication and copyright. An editorial group based in London and New Haven will manage the journal and an international advisory board will offer advice and support.
The first issue of British Art Studies is planned for Autumn 2015. Texts should be between 5000 and 8000 words in length (although the editors are willing to discuss shorter and longer formats). Authors must include a list of proposed images and sources. See the full call for writing guidelines and a style guide.
