Call for Submissions: Metropolitan Museum Journal

Invitation for submissions of original research on works of art in the Museum’s collection.

The Edito­r­ial Board of the peer-reviewed Metro­pol­i­tan Museum Journal invites submis­sions of orig­i­nal research on works of art in the Museum’s collec­tion. There are two sections: Arti­cles and Research Notes. Arti­cles contribute exten­sive and thor­oughly argued schol­ar­ship. Research Notes typi­cally present a concise, neatly bounded aspect of ongoing inves­ti­ga­tion, such as a new acqui­si­tion or attri­bu­tion, or a specific, reso­nant finding from tech­ni­cal analy­sis. All texts must take works of art in the collec­tion as the point of departure. 

As of 2019, the process of peer review is double-blind. Manu­scripts are reviewed by the Journal Edito­r­ial Board, composed of members of the cura­to­r­ial, conserva¬tion, and scien­tific depart­ments, as well as schol­ars from the broader academic community. 

Arti­cles and Research Notes in the Journal appear both in print and online, and are acces­si­ble via MetPub­li­ca­tions and the Jour­nal’s home page on the Univer­sity of Chicago Pres

Windgate ITE International Residency program at The Center for Art in Wood

Applications now being accepted

Windgate ITE is an inten­sive summer program in which the resi­dent fellows explore deeper connec­tions with the mate­r­ial of wood through research, explo­ration, and collab­o­ra­tion. Now in its twenty-fourth year, the Center awards eight pres­ti­gious fellow­ships from an inter­na­tional pool of appli­cants: a visual docu­men­tar­ian, a scholar, and six artists who work either solely in wood or who work with wood in combi­na­tion with other materials.
