Accepting that ideas are developed and deployed in different ways, Art Journal publishes in a wide range range of subjects, genres, and forms. These include scholarly articles, artists’ projects, interviews, portfolios, conversations, forums, speculations, pedagogical essays, working notes, and other projects.

Art Journal and the Art Journal website are edited independently, so there are two paths to publication. Artists, scholars, critics, curators, and other prospective contributors who share a passionate interest in modern and contemporary art, design, pedagogy, and visual culture are encouraged to submit work to either the website or journal.

CAA membership is not a requirement for publication. For questions of style for submissions to both the journal and the website, please see the Art Journal Style Guidelines.
