Pre-submission enquiries

Authors may obtain informal feedback from Editors before submitting a full manuscript. Please provide an abstract of your article so Editors may quickly assess the topic. Authors will either be invited to submit a full manuscript when completed, which does not assure publication, or will receive feedback that the topic is not currently suitable for publication. 

Author information

The journal does not limit the number of authors listed in the publication, and does not require all authors to be included in the publication. Manuscript submission presumes all listed authors agree to the text’s content and agree to be listed as an author. All communication between the journal and authors will occur via the article submission software. One corresponding author is responsible for all co-author communication and approvals.

Submission types

Please submit your manuscript in a Microsoft Word document. Authors may also submit other file types as supporting material. If you have questions about the type of submission, please contact to determine whether the journal currently supports the file type. 

Manuscripts in English

Editors will work closely with authors whose native language is not English, and will line edit those papers with care. 

Correcting the record

Published authors must promptly inform the journal if any element of the publication must be corrected due to an error. Corrections require consent from all co-authors, which must be secured by the corresponding author. Minor textual tweaks or grammatical or spelling mistakes will not be changed. 


The Museum Scholar does not have a distinct Editorial Board, but a rotating team of emerging museum professionals, museum students, and recent graduates who are selected to provide independent editorial opinions on submitted manuscripts, as needed.
