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 reflects 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. Three issues are published each year, two from an open call for submissions and one special issue coordinated by guest editors.
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 is 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.
British Art Studies is currently considering articles for publication in Autumn 2017. Please forward submissions to the Editorial Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and refer to published guidance for submissions and our editorial policy.
