Decorative Arts Society - call for papers


Rebecca Wallis from the V & A has sent on the details of this call for papers from The Decorative Arts Society:

papers are now invited for the DAS 37th Journal, which will be a regular issue without a special theme. Articles should cover some aspect of the decorative arts from 1850 to the present day. They should present new or recent unpublished research and reflect fresh discoveries, additions to existing knowledge or reappraisals of previous studies.

DAS Journal articles are generally in the range of 3000 to 7000 words (excluding notes) accompanied by illustrations in colour and black and white.

Full guidelines on content, length and style will be sent to selected contributors. In common with most non-profit-making academic publications, we do not offer a fee although production expenses up to an agreed maximum will be given.

Short synopses to be sent to the editor by 1 February 2013
Selected contributors will be notified by 1 March 2013
Final copy with images must arrive with the editor by 1 June 2013
Journal 37 will be published in late 2013

Please send synopses to Judy Spours via email
