Guidelines

Proposals for articles

We are very pleased to receive proposals for articles at any time. You can submit an abstract or outline of your article with a working title from the outset. Alternatively, write to the editorial team about your work and organisation and what you might propose for an article if it seems to be within Ariadne's scope. If an article is agreed, then a date for submission will be established and the editorial team will send you information on how to submit your article (and any images, always welcome) together with an explanation of the editorial process.  Being an online journal page length and word count are not set in stone, but we find that articles between 2000 and 4000 words are usually about the right balance between detail and readability.  All articles should be in English and should not have been published in English elsewhere. Articles that were previously published elsewhere in a different language can be submitted to us in English, provided that the author(s) have retained copyright/reuse rights and/or the original journal has permitted the reuse of the article and any included materials.

Target Audience

The target audience for Ariadne is librarians, museum curators, archivists and associated technical staff & managers.

Authors and self-archiving

Ariadne frequently receives requests from authors for permission to place a copy of their article on their institutional or another repository. Authors are welcome to do this but we request that the copy is not made publicly visible until their article has been published on the Ariadne Web site.
