Dear colleagues —

I am happy to announce a call for papers for the Journal of the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives, Issue no. 50.

Important Dates

April 15, 2019: Full article submission deadline

Editor: Bertram Lyons (editor@iasa-web.org)

General Call for Papers

IASA Journal invites proposals covering general topics of interest to the sound and audiovisual archives communities throughout the world. Articles, reviews, essays, and technical documents are welcome.

Issue no. 50 Special Considerations:

In IASA’s 50th year, we coincidentally will release the 50th issue of the IASA Journal! We encourage submissions that respond to critical issues for audiovisual archives today:

* Degradation in legacy physical collections, especially magnetic carriers

* Obsolescence of playback equipment and strategies for acquiring spare parts for playback machines

* Selecting sustainable and compatible target codecs and wrappers for A-to-D video reformatting projects

* Strategies for handling the proliferation of born-digital audiovisual formats and codecs

* Planning for the necessary technical infrastructure needed to ingest and manage the large digital collections being created and acquired at sound and audiovisual archives worldwide

* Intellectual property rights

* Metadata strategies for time-based media objects

* Providing meaningful and useful access to sound and audiovisual collections for researchers of all kinds and in all locations

Please consider submitting an article covering one of these topics or the results of independent research that would be of interest to the IASA membership and the international audiovisual archives community in general.

About the IASA Journal

The Journal of the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives represents the collected research and applied work of the global audiovisual archives community. Also known as the IASA Journal, it is published in issues bi-annually and available as an open-access Journal online (https://journal.iasa-web.org). The IASA Journal uses a double-blind peer-review methodology (the authors do not know who reviews their papers, and reviewers do not know who wrote the papers they are reviewing).

The IASA Journal is constantly looking for material to publish. Please submit articles, research output, or reviews you consider of interest to IASA via the online submission page (http://journal.iasa-web.org/pubs/about/submissions).

Information for Authors

Authors need to register (http://journal.iasa-web.org/pubs/user/register) with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply login (http://journal.iasa-web.org/pubs/login) and begin the five-step process.

1. You will be informed of IASA’s intention to review the article no more than one week after your submission.

2. Soft copy as a .doc or .rtf or .txt file should be submitted with minimal formatting.

3. Illustrations (photographs, diagrams, tables, maps, etc) may be submitted as low resolution files placed in the file or sent separately. Once the article has been accepted for publication, high resolution copies will be required and should be sent as separate documents.

4. Use footnotes not endnotes.

5. Use in-text referencing, and all references should be listed at the end of the article in alphabetic order and chronologically for each author. Both should adhere to Harvard style guidelines for references (quick review here: http://www.citethisforme.com/harvard-referencing).

6. Authors are encouraged to submit original research or to develop their conference presentations into more detailed accounts and/or arguments for publication in the journal.

7. Abstracts (maximum 250 words each) must be included with each submission and may be in French, German, Spanish, or English.

Copyright Notice: Unless stated otherwise, authors license their work under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. Signed articles and reviews represent the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the policies of the Association.

Please contact editor@iasa-web.org with any questions.

Thanks, and best —

Bertram Lyons, Editor, IASA Journal
