Guidelines for Authors

Aims and Scope

Archives and Manuscripts is the professional and scholarly journal of the Australian Society of Archivists Inc., publishing articles, reviews, and information about the theory and practice of archives and recordkeeping in Australasia and around the world. Its target audiences are archivists and other recordkeeping professionals, the academic community, and all involved in the study and interpretation of archives.

Case studies about particular projects or institutions which can be related to more general application are also encouraged. We will not normally accept articles on historical topics which use archives as primary sources or articles previously published in, or concurrently submitted to, other journals. We may accept articles based on oral presentations at conferences and forums.

Authors interested in making a submission to the journal are encouraged to contact the Journal Editor to indicate their intention and to discuss the suitability of their article for the journal.

All submissions to the journal including images and figures, must be made through the Manuscripts Central portal.

Publication Process

All research articles appearing in Archives and Manuscripts undergo a rigorous peer review process, based on initial editor screening and refereeing by two anonymous referees. All other written contributions in this journal (including case studies, invited papers, review articles, book reviews, and international news notes) undergo editorial screening and peer review.

Articles submitted for publication in Archives and Manuscripts will be refereed by two experts and returned to authors with a recommendation to accept, accept with editing or revision, revise and resubmit, or reject.

For further information about the production cycle of the journal, as well as instructions for authors intending to submit an article, please see the online journal's webpages on the Taylor & Francis website.
