CFP: Provenance

Provenance: The Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists, a peer reviewed academic publication, seeks articles on archival theory and practice for the 2016 issue. Please note that the content of the journal is not limited to the state of Georgia, and articles of regional or national significance are welcome. First-time authors are especially encouraged to submit articles for consideration. As evidenced by the forthcoming audiovisual issue, composed of video, audio, and traditional article formats, Provenance is also interested in innovative and unique methods for presenting scholarly content.

Articles on archival topics outside of theory and practice which meet publication standards will also be considered. Typical papers should be a Word document, 10-20 pages, double spaced, and formatted according to the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Please review information for contributors: Articles are to be submitted utilizing Provenance’s online system:

For additional information contact Editor Heather Oswald at: Deadline for contributions is July 31, 2016.

Each year the SGA awards the Gracy Award, a $350 prize which recognizes a superior contribution to Provenance. Named for David B. Gracy II, founder and first editor of Georgia Archive, the award began in 1990 and is judged by the editorial board.
