About The Art Bulletin

September 2015Issue of The Art Bulletin

The Art Bulletin publishes leading scholarship in the English language in all aspects of art history as practiced in the academy, museums, and other institutions. From its founding in 1913, the journal has published, through rigorous peer review, scholarly articles and critical reviews of the highest quality in all areas and periods of the history of art. Articles take a variety of methodological approaches, from the historical to the theoretical. In its mission as a journal of record, The Art Bulletin fosters an intensive engagement with intellectual developments and debates in contemporary art-historical practice. It is published four times a year: in March, June, September, and December. The Art Bulletin is published in print and online and available as a benefit of CAA membership.

The Art Bulletin welcomes submissions from scholars worldwide and at every stage in their career. Please read the submission and style guidelines for more information on the process.

Thomas, associate professor at the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University and chair of the Art Bulletin Editorial Board, created a website, “Publishing The Art Bulletin: Past, Present, and Future,” in collaboration with the Scalar project of the Alliance for the Networking of Visual Culture and the University of Southern California, which helped to fund the project.
