Call for Submissions

We are seeking submissions for the Spring 2023 issue and beyond. Peer-reviewed articles for possible publication in the Spring 2023 issue should be submitted no later than June 30, 2022. Non-peer reviewed Annotations featuring recent discoveries, project reports, etc. (ca. 3000 words) can be submitted up to August 30, 2022 for the Spring 2023 issue.  Articles and Annotations can be submitted here.

Manuscript Studies brings together scholarship, both traditional and digital, from around the world and across disciplines related to the study of pre-modern manuscript books and documents. Manuscript Studies embraces the full complexity of global manuscript studies in the digital age. It has been conceived with four main goals in mind. First, to bridge the gaps between material and digital manuscript research; second, to break down the walls which often separate print and digital publication and serve as barriers between academics, professionals in the cultural heritage field, and citizen scholars; third, to serve as a forum for scholarship encompassing many pre-modern manuscripts cultures—not just those of Europe; and finally to showcase methods and techniques of analysis in manuscript studies that can be applied across different subject areas.

MIRABILE-ATLAS Fellowship core objectives
1. On-line publication, with related search functions for the search and
visualization, of data present in MIRABILE on an atlas of medieval
culture with related cross-searches and interactive navigation over the
data retrieved from the database. All data will be transformed in JSON,
which is the standard format for the management of data used by Elastic
Search for indexing.

2. Integration with information present in MIRABILE's databases (such as
the author, the texts, the manuscripts that conserve them and the
bibliography). The development of this new
module will provide the ability to show those database informations on a
map. The geographical data will be loaded by the user inserting it in a
text field. To facilitate the user, a lemmatization algorithm will be
used, it will analyze the text contained in the document by detecting
the entries in it.

be implemented in the new project, providing a way to view the data on
an interactive map.

YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies 4 (2022) and 5 (2023) Call for Papers

by Osman Kocabal

YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies 4 (2022) and 5 (2023) Call for Papers

YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies invites contributions for its fourth and fifth volumes to be published in December 2022 and December 2023. YILLIK is a peer-reviewed, open access, international academic journal featuring cutting-edge research on Istanbul’s past and present, published by the Istanbul Research Institute in print and online (via DergiPark). YILLIK is indexed by SCOPUS and the MLA International Bibliography.

YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies is accepting submissions of original research articles, opinion pieces and visual essays (Meclis), book and exhibition reviews in Turkish or English, by researchers working on any period of the city through the lens of history, history of art and architecture, archaeology, sociology, anthropology, geography, urban planning, urban studies, and other related disciplines in humanities or social sciences.

Articles submitted for publication in the journal are first evaluated by the Editorial Board. Articles deemed suitable by editors in terms of subject matter and quality will be sent to two anonymous reviewers elected among the multidisciplinary Advisory Board in accordance with their expertise, or recommended by the Advisory Board. Reports from the double-blind reviewers are combined with the comments of the editors and sent back to the author. Depending on their quality and relevance, articles may be accepted or rejected, or the author may be asked to revise the work.

The review process is mandatory for research articles, while book and exhibition reviews along with the Meclis pieces only require editorial evaluation. The editors of the YILLIK pledge to complete the submission process as quickly and constructively as possible. Our aim is to limit the duration of the evaluation process, from the submission to the journal to the forwarding of reviewer reports to the author, to 6 weeks.

The deadline for the submission for the fourth volume, to be published in December 2022, is June 15. Some of the accepted articles with revisions may be published in the fifth volume in December 2023.

Every year, one of the articles written by a student or recent PhD will be awarded the YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies Early Career Article Prize. For details, click here.

Those who wish to submit a book or exhibition review are strongly recommended to ask for the opinion of the Editorial Board in order to avoid duplicate reviews.

YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies conforms to Chicago Manual of Style 17th Edition. Before submitting your article, please refer to our submission & publishing style guide.

For the “YILLIK: Annual of Istanbul Studies Publishing Ethics and Peer Review Statement” click here.

Peer-reviewed article submissions must be made through Dergipark.

Manuscript Fragments and Fragmentology at the Library of CongressSession held on-side at the Library of Congress

Friday, February 24, 2023With the aim of identifying and reconstructing broken books, the field of Fragmentology has adopted digital tools and shared virtual workspaces. What data do we gather and what stories do we tell with this emerging field of research? How are librarians, curators, collectors, historians, musicologists, textual scholars, students, and digital humanists collaborating and producing new knowledge? How do these bits of books intersect with nationality and identity, and how do these constructs impact the scholarly work of identifying and reconstructing manuscripts? This session will be hosted onsite at the Library of Congress, and although it is not limited to any geographical scope, new research on DC-area collections of medieval manuscript fragments is especially welcome.


Organizers: Marianna Stell (Reference Librarian, Rare Book and Special Collections Division, Library of Congress) and Matthew J. Westerby (Research Associate, Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, National Gallery of Art)Moderator: Lisa Fagin Davis (Medieval Academy of America)
