AHPP Submission Guidelines


Art History Pedagogy and Practice (AHPP) is a peer-reviewed, open-access e-journal dedicated to advancing teaching and learning in art history. The journal provides a forum for scholarly discourse that articulates and presents the range of pedagogical methods for learners in formal, informal, and virtual learning environments. AHPP embraces multiple research models that examine the effectiveness of instructional strategies and technologies that build the skills, theories, concepts, and values necessary to art historical practice. AHPP also fosters exchange between art history and allied fields including art and museum education, studio art and design, visual and material culture, and the digital humanities by considering the role of technology and the material object to enhance understanding and intellectual development.


Types of Submission

AHPP welcomes a variety of submissions, from quantitative studies of teaching and learning in art history and across curricula to reflective essays about classroom experiences and concerns specific to art history’s pedagogies. The journal welcomes single- and multi-authored works as well as fully collaborative digital and multi-modal projects. We encourage submissions from authors at all academic levels, including collaborative projects that include graduate and/or undergraduate students as contributing authors.  Submission types may include but are not limited to

  • Long form articles: essays and reports documenting completed or in-progress projects, theoretical or scholarly papers, reflections, or reviews of literature (3,000-10,000 words).
  • Short form essays: reports on works in progress, responses to previous articles, reflections about in-class experiences, tools and tips about teaching methods that reflect on and assess the effectiveness of approach in a scholarly manner (1,500-3,000 words).
  • Multi-modal projects: in-progress or completed projects that fit into the rubric of the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL).



Submissions will be subject to a rigorous double-blind peer review process by two scholars in the field. AHPP expects reviewers to adhere to our reviewing guidelines and provide formative, supportive feedback to authors. The journal does not accept simultaneous submissions, and all submissions should be previously unpublished and completely original. Work that has been explored in blog posts and conference papers should be appropriately revised, including incorporation of new content for publication.

AHPP looks to provide an encouraging review process for scholars at all stages in their career.

Any questions about submissions can be addressed to info@arthistoryPP.org.


How to Submit
