Jan 23, 2017 - Rogers Publishing has launched two digital-only academic journals to serve the international museum community. These original publications are peer-reviewed forums for professional, academic, and student work, which will expand opportunities to publish museological texts and will improve access to museum-centric educational resources.
The Museum Review (TMR) invites museum practitioners and academics to publish their work. Learn more and submit an article for consideration at TheMuseumReview.org.
The Museum Scholar (TMS) invites all Museum Studies students and recent graduates to submit work for publication at TheMuseumScholar.org.
These journals explore topics across all museum types (Science, Art, Children’s History, Historic Homes, etc.), and all themes applicable to running a nonprofit museum (access, audience, authority, collections management, community relations, conservation, digital media, education, ethics, evaluation, exhibition planning, finance, governance, interpretation, marketing, philanthropy, provenance, repatriation, visitor services, etc.). Journal editors will collaborate with international universities, museums, museum associations, specialized professional societies, consultants, and conferences to generate content.
The publications are Open Access Gold journals, meaning the publisher provides them online at no cost to readers. Rogers Publishing elected to pursue Open Access journals in order to grant public access to ideas to advance knowledge across the museum field. There is also no fee for authors to participate.
Each article is published in two formats on the journals’ websites: as a downloadable academic paper, and as a web-based article resembling an online magazine. The journals’ versions of record are hosted by the Public Knowledge Project at Simon Fraser University, and both journals subscribe to CrossRef, DOI, and Stanford University Library’s LOCKSS system.
