Good news - the Yale Center for British Art and the Paul Mellon Centre in London have announced a new online journal for British Art. The first edition of British Art Studies is due to be published in Autumn 2015. Says the Yale Center:
The Yale Center for British Art and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art are pleased to announce their collaboration on a new online, open-access, 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 Yale Center for British Art and the Paul Mellon Centre, as well as the wider fi eld 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, and the call for submissions, together with guidelines for writing for this new and exciting venture, has just been released.
