Peregrinations: Journal of Medieval Art and Architecture seeks a wide variety of articles, both juried and non-juried. Anyone may submit an original article provided he or she owns the copyright to the work being submitted or is authorized by the copyright owner or owners to submit the article. Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book (print or electronic). Please note: “publication” in a working-paper series does not constitute prior publication. In addition, by submitting material to Peregrinations: Journal of Medieval Art and Architecture, the author is stipulating that the material is not currently under review at another journal (electronic or print) and that he or she will not submit the material to another journal (electronic or print) until the completion of the editorial decision process at Peregrinations: Journal of Medieval Art and Architecture.
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 written in any widely-accepted format (Chicago Style, etc.) so long as they are consistent within the article. Please format your article as follows:
• use Word or WordPerfect. Do not submit PDFs.
• double space text; single space footnotes
• justify left
• use 12-point font size
• number your pages
• use footnotes rather than endnotes (no parenthetical notes)
• for initial submission send images as separate jpegs or tiffs or placed in a Powerpoint presentation.
• number your illustrations and indicate them in the text using (fig. XX) form.
• include an illustration list with caption including title, date, location (where appropriate) and indication of copyright, e.g. Miracle Window, Canterbury Cathedral, early 13th century, England. Photo: author.
Heard of tiny houses? How about tiny articles? Have you made a worthy discovery, completed research on some form of medieval art or architecture that didn’t seem to cover enough material to warrant a full article? Peregrinations: Journal of Medieval Art & Architecture is looking for just such very small/very short articles for a possible special issue. Please follow the same formatting instructions as Juried Articles.
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 use the same format as juried articles, listed above.
Book Reviews should be relatively short (no longer than 3,000) words and preferably illustrated. Book reviews will be solicited or assigned by the editors. Unsolicited reviews should not be submitted. Rather, please let the editor know if you are interested in joining our list of reviewers or in reviewing a specific book.
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 the editor regarding your plans before you submit.
