Types of Submissions

Art History Pedagogy & Practice welcomes a variety of submissions, from quantitative studies of teaching and learning in art history and across curricula to reflective essays about classroom experiences and concerns specific to art history’s pedagogies. The journal welcomes single- and multi-authored works as well as fully collaborative digital and multi-modal projects. We encourage submissions from authors at all academic levels, including collaborative projects that include graduate and/or undergraduate students as contributing authors. Submission types may include but are not limited to

  • Long form articles: essays and reports documenting completed or in-progress projects, theoretical or scholarly papers, reflections, or reviews of literature (3,000-10,000 words).
  • Short form essays: reports on works in progress, responses to previous articles, reflections about in-class experiences, and/or tools and tips about teaching methods that reflect on and assess the effectiveness of approach in a scholarly manner (1,500-3,000 words).
  • Multi-modal projects: in-progress or completed projects that fit into the rubric of the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL).

Submissions will be subject to a rigorous double-blind peer review process by two scholars in the field. Art History Pedagogy & Practice expects reviewers to adhere to our reviewing guidelines and provide formative, supportive feedback to authors. The journal does not accept simultaneous submissions, and all submissions should be previously unpublished and completely original. Work that has been explored in blog posts and conference papers should be appropriately revised, including incorporation of new content for publication.

Peer Review Process

Peer Review Guidelines

Art History Pedagogy & Practice uses a double-blind peer review process. Initially, issue editors will review submitted manuscripts and will reject papers that are outside of the journal’s scope. As stated in the submission guidelines, authors are responsible for appropriately masking their manuscript prior to submission and Art History Pedagogy & Practice will ensure reviewers do not receive documentation or metadata that identifies the author. Returned reviews will be similarly blinded.

The review and revision process takes, on average, 6 to 9 months, with an initial decision within 12 weeks. Authors may not submit the manuscript to other publications while a review is in progress.

In those cases where plagiarism is detected prior to publication, the manuscript will be rejected.

In those cases where plagiarism is detected after publication, the published article will be amended to state that it contains plagiarized material; in extreme cases of plagiarism, the publication will be removed and a note made on the journal's website as to the reason.
