Launch of New caa.reviews Website
posted by Christopher Howard — Jan 28, 2016
CAA and Routledge are pleased to announce the launch of a new website for caa.reviews, an online, open-access journal of book and exhibition reviews in the visual arts. The new site has a cleaner look, is easier to navigate, and has faster and smarter search tools. New filters based on geography, time period, and genre or specialization allow readers to narrow and focus search results, making it easier to find specific articles. An important addition for caa.reviews is a Creative Commons license (CC-BY-ND), making reviews available for redistribution if the content is unaltered and appropriate credit is given.
DeWitt Godfrey, president of the CAA Board of Directors, writes: “For over seventeen years, caa.reviews has been the only scholarly journal solely dedicated to the review of books and exhibitions. The journal would not exist without the dedication and hard work of the Council of Field Editors and caa.reviews Editorial Board, past and present, who produce 150 substantial reviews each year. CAA is grateful to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for its original support of the journal and to Taylor & Francis for making the new version of the journal possible.”
caa.reviews, founded in 1998, publishes timely scholarly and critical reviews of studies and projects in all areas and periods of art history, visual studies, and the fine arts, providing peer review for the disciplines served by CAA. Publications and projects reviewed include books, articles, exhibitions, conferences, digital scholarship, and other works as appropriate. In reviewing and publishing recent texts and projects, caa.reviews fosters timely, worldwide access to the intellectual and creative materials and issues of art-historical, critical, curatorial, and studio practice; the journal also promotes the highest standards of discourse in the disciplines of art and art history.
