If you are a museum educator or involved with museum learning, thank you for landing on this page! The Journal of Museum Education was created by and for educators like you.  We hope you will take a look at the information on this page and consider submitting an idea for a single article or perhaps even a guest-edited themed issue. We know how hectic life can be – your interest is greatly appreciated!


For Guest Editors and Authors

The Co-Editors of the Journal of Museum Education welcome the submission of proposals to guest-edit themed sections and original papers on theory, training, and practice in the museum education field.

Each JME issue features an introduction from one of the Co-Editors, a guest-edited themed section featured on the cover of the journal, and articles about new research, current trends, tools, frameworks, and case studies, perspectives, and book, exhibit, and program reviews. Articles are peer-reviewed in a double-blind process.


Guest editors shape themed sections of the JME. If you are interested in submitting a proposal to guest edit a section of the JME please follow the guidelines outlined in the document download below. Themed sections generally include 4-7 articles, plus an introduction by the guest editor.
