RIHA Journal. Journal of the International Association of Research Institutes in the History of Art is a peer-reviewed Open Access journal for the history of art and visual culture, featuring outstanding research articles that offer significant contributions to current scholarship. The journal was launched in April 2010. It is a joint project of the member institutes of RIHA – International Association of Research Institutes in the History of Art; the directors of the RIHA institutes constitute the editorial board. Edited by 29 institutes in 21 countries, the journal is an excellent medium for fostering international discourse among scholars.
Based on a de-centralized editorial structure, the journal explores new ways of international publishing: Each of the RIHA institutes is locally responsible for establishing and maintaining the contact with authors, for manuscript editing, and for managing the peer reviews.
RIHA Journal seeks to reflect the manifold dimensions of the discipline and is open to the whole range of art historical topics and approaches. The journal offers articles in the five official CIHA languages English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, as well as in other languages, depending on the capacities of the RIHA institutes. A double-blind peer-review process performed by experts in the field ensures the highest standards of scholarship.
The editors take seriously the need of scholars to publish their research results easily and quickly. Hence the journal seeks to offer its authors short editing processes of less than six months from submission to publication. For the same reason, articles are published, not in periodical issues, but one at a time. In addition, RIHA Journal features Special Issues on particular research topics.
RIHA Journal is a not-for-profit e-journal committed to the principles of Open Access: All articles are available without restriction and free of charge. Subscribe to our RSS Feed or follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with new articles
