General Call for Papers

IASA Journal invites proposals covering general topics of interest to the sound and audiovisual archives communities throughout the world. Articles, reviews, essays, and technical documents are welcome.

Issue no. 43 special considerations:

We encourage submissions that respond to three growing problems for audiovisual archives today: continued entropy and decay in collections; big data management and infrastructure; and intellectual property rights. Please consider submitting an article covering one of these topics or the results of research that would be of interest to the IASA membership.

Abstracts (maximum 250 words each) may be in French, German, Spanish, or English. Images can be sent as digital images in GIF, JPEG, PDF, PNG,
or TIFF formats.

Please send expressions of interest by March 27, 2014, via email to the editor:
