Sources and Study Periods

 

American Art is published on paper by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Tel. 202-275-1625. The fine arts through America's history are the journal's primary focus, "but its scope encompasses all aspects of the nation's visual culture, including popular culture, public art, film, electronic multimedia, and decorative arts and crafts." Until 1991 the publication was known as as Smithsonian Studies in American Art. The University of Chicago Press Journals Division contains a list of articles in the publication from 1987-2003. Full text of recent issues is available online through American Art Electronic Edition, published by the University of Chicago. Back issues of American Art from Volume 1 through Volume 17 (1987-2003) are available from JSTOR. Online access to back issues is free to SAAM members. The study period for this publication is Spring 1987 (Vol. 1, No. 1) through Fall 2003 (Vol. 17, No. 3) and is limited to information for substantive essays concerning representational art.

American Art Journal (The) is published on paper by Kennedy Galleries and noted for its scholarly content, with an Editorial Board of distinguished American art scholars. Tel. 212.541-9600. It focuses on American art from the 17th century to the early 20th century. A complete list of essays from back issues including 1969 to 2001 is available in the publication's web site. The study period for this publication is Volume 1, Number 1 (1969) through Volume 32, Number 2 (2001) and is limited to information for substantive essays concerning representational art. On 5/27/09 TFAO determined that the essays from this journal will not be pursued for reprinting in Resource Library due to an arrangement between the publisher and JSTOR.

American Art Review, ISSN 0092-1327, is published on paper and noted for its scholarly content by both senior authors and younger scholars. Tel 913.451.8801. The time period focus of American Art Review is from the Colonial era through 1970. The first issue of Volume 1 of the magazine was published in September, 1973. Publication was suspended with Volume 4 in November, 1978. Publication resumed with Volume V in the Summer of 1992 and continues to the present. In the 19th century there was a journal with a similar title, The American Art Review: A Journal Devoted to The Practice, Theory, History and Archaeology of Art edited by S.R. Koehler. American Art Review provides a useful yardstick to measure annual scholarly output relating to museum exhibitions and other happenings concerning American art. Texts relate for the most part to contemporaneous museum exhibitions. The publication does not attempt, however, to cover all exhibits during a year. Since American Art Review editors are distinguished in the field of art history, the exhibits and contributing authors vetted by them for inclusion in the publication are of significance. The listings for American Art Review presently include Volumes I through Volume XX, Number 6. For Volumes I-XX this TFAO index contains the names of included authors, titles of their articles, volume numbers and issue dates. Also see TFAO's related American Art Review Study Project.

Archives of American Art Journal. The Archives of American Art says: "Covering the history of art in America from the 18th century to the recent past, the Archives of American Art Journal offers fresh and uncommon perspectives on American cultural and social history.... Since 1964 the Archives of American Art has published the Journal for the benefit of scholars, collectors, artists, researchers, Archives members and the interested public. Readers will find interpretive articles, full color reproductions of original documents and images, creative contributions from contemporary American artists, interviews from the Archives' Oral History Program, and much more. The Journal is currently published twice a year." An author who contributed an article to the publication has suggested that there is relevant scholarship to be found in the Archives of American Art Journal, and that scholars were not compensated for the work. Past issues may be accessed through JSTOR.

Art Journal is a quarterly journal published on paper by the College Art Association and was established in 1941 to "provide a forum for scholarship and visual exploration in the visual arts; to be a unique voice in the field as a peer-reviewed, professionally mediated forum for the arts; to operate in the spaces between commercial publishing, academic presses, and artist presses; to be pedagogically useful by making links between theoretical issues and their use in teaching at the college and university levels; to explore relationships among diverse forms of art practice and production, as well as among art making, art history, visual studies, theory, and criticism; to give voice and publication opportunity to artists, art historians, and other writers in the arts; to be responsive to issues of the moment in the arts, both nationally and globally; to focus on topics related to twentieth- and twenty-first-century concerns; to promote dialogue and debate."

Status sheets

In some instances, TFAO creates an online status sheet relating to the permission process for an individual essay or article by a named author. Links to status sheets are found on TFAO Author Study and Index pages. Each link is indicated by the word "status" in parentheses and follows the name of a considered text relating to an individual author. In addition to text identification information, status sheets may contain edited email correspondence by parties relating to the process from the inception of an inquiry to final correspondence. TFAO edits email correspondence to impair portions containing non-public email addresses and physical addresses, plus private phone numbers as well as verbiage deemed non-essential in its judgment. Online storage of correspondence is part of Resource Library and TFAO environmental protection policies described at How Resource Library differs from paper-printed art publications. Upon request of a correspondent, TFAO will remove his or her email text from a status sheet.
