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, conservation, 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 Press website.
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.
