Works in the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Metropolitan Museum Journal
Monday, October 15, 2018

The Editorial Board of the peer-reviewed Metropolitan Museum Journal invites submissions of original research on works of art in the Museum’s collection. There are two sections: Articles and Research Notes. Articles contribute extensive and thoroughly argued scholarship. Research Notes typically present a concise, neatly bounded aspect of ongoing investigation, such as a new acquisition or attribution, or a specific, resonant finding from technical analysis. All texts must take works of art in the collection as the point of departure. 

Articles and Research Notes in the Journal appear both in print and online, and are accessible via MetPublications and the Journal's home page on the University of Chicago Press website.

The deadline for submissions for Volume 54 (2019) is October 15, 2018.

Submission guidelines can be found on the website.
