Call for Contributions: Special Section of American Archivist

Hello and good day, everyone,

I am writing to you this morning as both a member of the SAA Design Records Section and as an Editorial Board member of the American Archivist. I would like to invite you all to consider writing an article for an upcoming special design records-related section of the journal.

The section will focus on such topics as design records management, repositories, practices, content, challenges, etc. We will also feature an image from a contributing repository for the issue’s cover.

Submitting a written work to AA is a wonderful way to reach out to your peers, contribute to the professional literature, and highlight your innovative practice and special content.

The AA Editor and Editorial Board have designated volume 84, issue 1 (fall/winter 2021) for this dedicated content; the publication/production calendar is:

July 1, 2020: Submissions due
December 2020: Peer review feedback returned and final decisions made
June 2021: Final drafts due

Many submission questions can be answered at www2.archivists.org/american-archivist/submissions. I am also certainly happy to field any questions and you are welcome to write to me off-line (please see my contact information below).

Thank you for considering this invitation; we look forward to your submissions!

Yours,
Karen

Fall/Winter 2019 Issue of American Archivist

Half of the content—including 11 articles and reviews—from the latest American Archivist is now online! Articles examine the roles of archivists and catalogers, consider virtual reality experiences for archival collections, reflect on the adoption of EAD twenty years later, highlight a case study for reassessing audiovisual materials, and more. Start reading now (you’ll need to log in to access the issue).

There’s more in the pipeline. The journal is experimenting with “advance article publication,” meaning that content will continue to be published online as it becomes available for this issue. The print edition, which will include the volume index, is projected to be available by March. View the entire table of contents for the issue.
