Submission Guidelines

Peregrinations: Journal of Medieval Art and Architecture seeks a wide variety of articles, both juried and non-juried.

Juried Articles should not exceed 9,000 words (except by special request). Short notes as well as long articles are welcome. We are also interested in review articles that analyze a particular portion of the field in light of new research. To facilitate the double-blind review process, please submit the article with your name only on a separate cover sheet and try to avoid any obvious self reference in the text or in the footnotes. Notes of gratitude to institutions, etc. can be added upon acceptance. Footnotes may done in any widely-accepted format (Chicago Style, etc.) so long as they are consistent within the article. Please format your article as follows:

-double space
-justify left
-number your pages
-use footnotes rather than endnotes
-for initial submission only send photocopies or scans of images, not actual photographs or slides

Non-juried Articles should generally be shorter (less than 4,000 words). These can be more popular or personal approaches to medieval art, travel accounts, preliminary findings, notes on recent acquisitions, opinion pieces, obituaries, teaching tips, humor, and more. These will be evaluated by someone on the editorial board for pertinence, but will generally be welcomed and published. Please format your article as follows:

-double space
-justify left
-number your pages
-use footnotes rather than endnotes
-for initial submission only send photocopies or scans of images, not actual photographs or slides

Book Reviews should be relatively short (no longer than 3,000) words. Book reviews will be solicited or assigned by the editors. Unsolicited reviews should not be submitted. Rather, please let us know if you are interested in joining our list of reviewers or in reviewing a specific book.

Photos and the Photobank - As copyright restrictions grow ever tighter, it has become more difficult (and definitely more expensive!) to reproduce works of art for scholarly articles and books. Indeed, trying to escape the exorbitant costs, many art historians have turned to images in the public domain (usually culled from nineteenth-century books) or are using sketches. It seems strange that in the twenty-first century art historians should be reduced to using nineteenth-century standards to illustrate their publications! In an attempt to remedy this situation, it occurred to us that many art historians have taken terrific pictures of artwork (meaning they own the copyright to their own photograph) and that it is time to share. If we can give each other permission to download images for non-profit teaching and research uses (giving credit where it is due), we can begin to remedy this problem and, even better, discover wonderful and useful images that will further inspire teaching and research.

Photo Essays can be scholarly or written in a more popular mode. They should contain images for which you own the copyright (i.e. you took the pictures yourself) and that you wish to share with other scholars for teaching and research in exchange for byline credit. Please contact us regarding your plans before you submit.
