Archives, Collections, and Curatorship

The Journal of Design History has a rich archive of peer-reviewed articles extending over three decades. This includes our Archives, Collections, and Curation (AC&C) articles which introduce and explore aspects of a design archive, collection, or exhibition as a resource for design historical research. 

If you are interested in preparing an AC&C submission for peer review, please contact the AC&C Editor, Zoë Hendon. Guidelines for AC&C submissions are published with our Introductions for Authors, here
