The V&A Online Journal is an annual peer-reviewed publication and features recent research undertaken in connection with the V&A – its collections, public programme and history.
Issue 5 of the V&A Online Journal is now live at www.vam.ac.uk/onlinejournal. The current issue features contributions on ancient Persepolis, Renaissance Italy, early modern amber, eighteenth -century connoisseurship and Parisian porcelain.
We are currently seeking submissions for subsequent editions.
Our writers are V&A staff, colleagues involved in V&A projects and external contributors writing about V&A-related subjects. Our audience comprises everyone interested in research at the Museum, whether academics, museum professionals or the public.
The journal features:
Articles on the history of art, architecture and design, relating to the V&A’s collections or institutional history (word length: 5,000-7,000)
Short essays focusing on individual objects, including new acquisitions and objects linked to future exhibitions (word length: 2,000-3,000)
Debates on policy issues relating to the V&A’s activities and its links with education or the creative industries (word length: 2,000-3,000)

We are particulalry interested in shorter pieces for the next issue (2014) but all contributions will be considered; there is no deadline and we welcome submissions on a rolling basis.
