With at least 100 pages and over 100 illustrations, many in colour, the Journal is of permanent scholarly value to both institutions and collectors. There is a full cumulative index of past Journals, most of which are still available.

Proposals for articles for forthcoming DAS Journals are invited, with a view to inclusion in the next, or the following, Journal (published annually).  Proposals should be for illustrated articles in the range of 3,000 to 7,000 words, to cover an aspect of the decorative arts from 1850 to the present day.  They should present new or recent unpublished research and reflect fresh discoveries, additions to existing knowledge, or reappraisals of previous studies. 

If a proposal is accepted, full guidelines about content, length and style, and quality of illustrations, will be sent to the contributor.  In common with most non-profit-making academic publications, we cannot offer a fee, although expenses for photographs or reproduction rights can be paid up to an agreed maximum.

Please send short proposals (A4-page length) to the Journal Editor:

Proposals will be considered for publication by the Journal’s editorial panel.
