In consultation with the journal’s editorial board, Indiana University Press invites expressions of interest from potential editors, coeditors, or editorial teams willing to take responsibility for Museum Anthropology Review’s (MAR) editorial office beginning in 2022.
Published semiannually, the journal works to advance research and professional practice within the diverse, international fields of museum anthropology, museum-based folklore studies, and material culture studies and to foster communication within and between them. The journal’s founding commitment to open access publishing remains rooted in concerns for equity, inclusion, and the specific interests of the varied communities with whom scholars and practitioners in these fields work. Founded and continuing as an open access journal, MAR joined the journals program at Indiana University Press in 2020.
Indiana University Press is eager to help MAR’s next editorial team build on the journal’s inherited strengths while facilitating further experimentation, innovation, and inclusion. Because MAR is not linked to a network of paid subscribers or to a scholarly organization, the journal offers unusual levels of flexibility to prospective editors. As has been true throughout the journal’s history, issues and volumes can vary in size and MAR can accommodate not only new and diverse voices, but new genres, new media, and multiple languages as well.
