CFP: Getty Research Journal

We are pleased to invite submissions to the Getty Research Journal. Published twice a year, in February and in August, the journal presents peer-reviewed articles on the visual arts of all cultures, regions, and time periods. Topics relate to Getty collections, initiatives, and broad research interests. The journal welcomes a diversity of perspectives and methodological approaches, and seeks to include work that expands narratives on global culture. We encourage topics and cultural perspectives that remain marginalized in art history and related fields, and work by scholars of underrepresented backgrounds and/or in early career stages.

Submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis. The next submission deadline is 1 Aug 2022.

The Getty Research Journal publishes full-length articles (5,000–10,000 words, including endnotes, and 8–12 illustrations) and shorter notices often highlighting new research, acquisitions, or discoveries in the Getty’s collections (1,500–5,000 words, including endnotes, and 3–7 illustrations). The Getty Research Journal is distributed in print and electronically by the University of Chicago Press, Journals Division, and is also archived on JSTOR.

Authors submitting in languages other than English should submit as early as possible to allow for additional time needed for peer review and translation. The journal will translate articles accepted in languages other than English.
