CFP: Manuscript Studies: A New Journal from the Schoenberg Institute

The Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies has announced the creation of a new journal, Manuscript Studies, which aims to embrace “the full complexity of global manuscript studies in the digital age.” The journal is designedĀ to approach four goals:

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 culturesā€”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.

Editors are now accepting submissions; see the Manuscript Studies Author guidelines for more details.
