Call for Papers

Contributions are now invited for the 2016 issue of the Turnbull Library Record.

The Turnbull Library Record is a peer-reviewed journal in the humanities, published yearly by the Alexander Turnbull Library in association with the Friends of the Turnbull Library. It publishes information relating to the activities of the Library, as well as articles covering a wide range of research, with special emphasis on the societies and cultures of New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Its purpose is to increase knowledge of the Library’s collections by showing their scope and richness, and the ways researchers are using them.

The 2016 Record will not be themed, but will instead be a general issue. Articles or pictorial essays should be between 2,000-5,000 words. Contributions that have not been previously published are welcome and, before acceptance, will be independently refereed. They should be written in a lively and accessible manner, with a scholarly underpinning.

Deadline for the submission of papers is 1 September 2015.

The Editorial Board reserves the right to decline to publish an article, whether solicited or unsolicited. For more information, to propose an idea, or to submit a paper, please contact the Managing Editor: Fiona Oliver
