Burlington Contemporary call for papers: Art in Latin America


Call for papers: Art in Latin America

Burlington Contemporary is a free-access, peer reviewed academic journal, which launched its first issue in May 2019.

We are currently seeking articles of between 2,000 and 5,000 words, on aspects of art made in Latin America since the 1960s, or by artists from Latin America who work internationally. Research can include practice-based research by artists, and we are particularly keen to make the most of our technical capabilities by including sound, image and documentary material.

Deadline: 1st March 2020

(articles will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis)

Articles must be submitted by email to

Submission guidelines

Articles should be the result of new research that has not been published elsewhere. Submissions are judged in relation to their international and lasting significance to the field of contemporary art. All submissions are subject to peer review from an academic board.


Articles up to 5,000 words will be considered

Footnotes should be limited to references; discursive footnotes will be cut.


Where possible, manuscripts should be submitted in English, although submission in other major European languages are acceptable as long as they are accompanied by a short résumé (up to 150 words) in English. If an article in a foreign language is accepted, the Magazine will arrange to have it translated.


Burlington Contemporary has its own house style and articles will be edited to conform with it. We use UK (British) spelling and style, and with a few exceptions conform to the preferences of The Oxford Dictionary for Writers and Editors.

Illustrations, video and audio content

We welcome film and audio content in addition to images.

For an article of 2,500–3,500 words, we recommend between eight and twelve illustrations.

Please include as part of the article a numbered list of illustrations, which should relate to figure references within the text.

Please supply low resolution files of the images, grouped into a separate Word document or pdf file. Please do not place illustrations within the text of the article.

If the article is accepted we will work with authors to negotiate reproduction fees, covering these costs and obtaining images where necessary.

Peer review

We aim to respond to all authors within three months of their submission.

All submitted articles are read by the editors and if deemed potentially suitable for publication are sent out for peer review.
