Write for the Archives of American Art Journal

Guidelines for submitting scholarly articles for publication consideration.

The Archives of American Art Journal publishes two types of articles:

  • Research-based articles of 5,000 to 7,000 words (including endnotes) for peer review that present innovative interpretations of archival materials
  • Short commissioned texts for editorial review that explore historical or methodological questions through sources at the Archives

We also welcome proposals for other kinds of research-based or creative contributions that support the journal's mission.
