Submitting an article for consideration

The Editorial Board of the Journal of Art Crime will consider a wide range of Art Crime and Cultural Heritage protection articles for publication, but especially academic papers, research reports, and reviews. In general, there is no particular house style, but all papers are expected to be appropriately annotated and referenced. While the substantive text of all items published will be in English, ARCA encourages authors to include original language articles where appropriate and as space allows. Manuscripts must be submitted in accordance with JAC submission guidelines and must be proofread prior to submission.
