Proposal Submission Form

This project will result in a Handbook of Archival Practice written by Professionals for current and future Archival professionals (and other interested parties).  Because the book will be published in the United States, the descriptions and examples of archival practices will be reflective of those followed in English-speaking countries.
 
 
Phase 1 was an open call for authors in Nov. 2019. Numerous authors responded, and those proposal that have been approved are in various stages of review at this time.

Phase 2 is a call for authors to write entries for "specific" terms/topics that are still needed.  Submit proposals as soon as possible--we are filling in the gaps now, so the sooner you submit the more likely your term/topic will be available.

Authors of entries will be expected to follow a basic template for each entry that includes a definition and/or description of the term (focusing on the outcome), a description of the process involved, a practical example of its actual or potential application, and some type of visual related to the process or outcome to be considered for inclusion (e.g., a model, graphic, form used to identify acceptable file formats, image of completed exhibit used as part of outreach initiative when appropriate). The visual is optional and used to enhance understanding and learning.
 
Each entry will be between 500 and 2500 words based on topic--the desired length will be determined in conversation with the editor. Some entries may result in the development of more than one additional entry--for example, someone writing on replevin may wish to cover restitution/repatriation as well.

A draft of the entry is due 3 months after notification of acceptance by the editor.
 
As a thank you, each contributor, regardless of the number of entries, will be provided with one hard copy of the finished publication, as well as the opportunity to purchase additional copies at 50% off. Each contributor will also be credited with their work in the Handbook.
 
If you have questions about the project, contact Dr. Pat Franks (email for handbook). To get started, complete the survey and I'll get in touch with you.
 
Thank you!
