The Society of Georgia Archivists and Provenance editorial board are pleased to announce that they have moved to an open access model for the journal. All issues will be available online as soon as they are ready for publication, removing the one year embargo on content that had previously been in place.We hope this shift will better meet the needs of the profession and provide more timely research and commentary on the topics that matter most to the field.

Call for Papers
Provenance: The Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists, a peer reviewed academic publication, seeks articles on archival theory and practice for the 2020 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. Provenance is also interested in innovative and unique methods for presenting scholarly content. Please contact Heather Oswald if you would like to discuss an article idea or format.
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 17th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Please review information for contributors: digitalcommons.kennesaw.edu/provenance/policies.html.
Articles are to be submitted utilizing Provenance’s online system: digitalcommons.kennesaw.edu/provenance.
For additional information contact Editor Heather Oswald at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for contributions is July 15, 2020.
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.
