Call for Submissions: MARAC Technical Leaflet Series

A note from the Technical Leaflets Editorial Board:

Dear MARAC members,

The Communications Committee is seeking new submissions and suggestions for the MARAC Technical Leaflet Series, (Print ISSN 2577-9400 and Electronic ISSN 2577-9419), a double-blind, peer-reviewed serial publication that provides practical guidance for specific archival tasks not commonly addressed in the professional literature.
Since 2018, the Editorial Board of the Technical Leaflet Series is aiming to produce at least two publications per calendar year (spring and winter). Topics of particular interest for future publications may include:

  • Creating and maintaining acquisitions files
  • Curation and storage of oversize objects and realia
  • Data analytics
  • Diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility initiatives for archives
  • Handling of classified or proprietary materials in a government or corporate repository
  • Oral history in archives
  • Preservation, handling, and description of any of the following:
    • 19th-century photographs
    • Audio-visual materials
    • Datasets
    • Email
    • Textile materials
  • Reparative (re)processing of archival materials
  • Web archiving

Please submit any proposals or topic suggestions to marac.communications@gmail.com. Publication guidelines for submissions are available on the MARAC website. Authors are encouraged to observe a soft limit of 25-30 pages of content. Fall 2020 submissions have a projected publication date of December 2021 for our Winter issue. Our next call for proposals will be in April 2021. All submissions will be reviewed by members of our Editorial Board. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your leaflet ideas further, please contact us.

Sincerely,
Alex Japha, Editor-in-Chief
Heidi Abbey Moyer, Editor
Diane Wunsch, Editor
MARAC Technical Leaflet Series Editorial Board
