Archival History News seeks written submissions for the launch of the Archival History Section’s recurring newsletter, soon available on the web.  Are you working with a collection that sheds light on the history of the profession?  Have you just made an archival discovery that you wish to share with the community?  Or are you conducting some exciting historical research at your institution and want to get the word out?

Consider submitting your piece to the Archival History News!  We are soliciting brief essays, short biographies or remembrances of archivists, book reviews of archival histories, and longer articles detailing moments in archival history.  Also send copies of archival photographs (taken before the year 2000) showing the work of archives and special libraries.  The newsletter’s scope is flexible and first-time submitters are always welcome.

The Archival History Section is excited for the revival of its newsletter.  Edited by Adam Mosseri and Eric Stoykovich, Archival History News is eager to receive submissions.

Archival History News, Author Guidelines:

Mission:  Archival History News serves as a means of communicating the value of archival history to a broad public, through the publication of ongoing archival history research, documentary or biographical notes, book reviews, and announcements of interest to those writing about the history of archives, archivists, and archival practices.

What we publish:  Archival History News will publish a variety of items which meet the approval of the editors, including submissions, contributions, and links to content on other websites. The editors are open to new ideas and first-time submitters are always welcome.

When we publish:  Submissions are accepted for review on a rolling basis, though publishing to the new website will occur on a schedule. For the moment, the editors anticipate releasing new material at least every four months.

Archival History News is NOT a peer-reviewed journal:  An author who submits works for publication should expect to have their work(s) reviewed and proofread by the editors, which may include blind review by outside editorial consultants, depending on the complexity of the topic or languages involved. Some submissions may be readied for publication with little or no editorial intervention, while others may be rejected outright. An author whose work needs editorial help or receives notice of rejection will receive an explanation from the editors in a timely manner (no more than 45 days from submission).

While authors should submit works not otherwise published elsewhere, there is no obligation on accepted authors of Archival History News to regard their submissions as the exclusive property of Archival History News. However, authors should cite Archival History News in later re-use of materials when it substantially replicates content published in Archival History News.

Accepted Formats:  Documents may be submitted in three formats: Word documents, MAC Book documents, and editable PDFs.  Digital images should be submitted as JPEGs.

Style:  Chicago Manual of Style is the preferred means of citation.  The main body of text should be 12 pt. Calibri with endnotes in 10 pt. Calibri.

Please send contributions to ArchivalHistoryNews@gmail.com
