CFP: ARCHIVES (British Records Association)

ARCHIVES, a peer-reviewed journal published by Liverpool University Press on behalf of the British Records Associationinvites submissions that inform, explore, and inspire all those who use historical records. ARCHIVES provides accessible and engaging articles that increase understanding of the whereabouts, interpretation and historical significance of archival material of all historical periods. It provides a platform for historians and archivists to share their discoveries and information about the sources they have used for research. We particularly welcome contributions from those at an early stage of their careers.

Themes that can be addressed include, but are not limited to:

– Archival trends, theories and practices
– Archives and the community
– Archives and diversity
– Approaches towards using archives and source materials
– Archives and accessibility
– Record keeping practices
– Digital curation
