"Art history straddles the digital divide. Its pedagogical practices have been transformed by digital technology, but its scholarship remains wedded to the printed age. … Art history is invested in the monographic book as the prime vehicle for transmission of knowledge and academic advancement, and this bias is reinforced by tenure and promotion standards that privilege books over other types of publications."

Hilary Ballon and Mariet Westermann. “Art History and Its Publications in the Electronic Age.” Rice University Press (2006). 

There are only a couple open access, online art history journals, but they are limited in scope. ArtHistory.us aims to add to their numbers.  Our field can move past print publication bias, and slowly but surely, it will.

Be a force of change by submitting an article to ArtHistory.us. Let’s create a new kind of journal for an emerging type of art history.
