Call for Papers – The Moving Image

The Moving Image, the journal of the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA), 
provides a juried forum for archivists, librarians, technical specialists, scholars and 
academics interested in the field of moving image archiving and history.  The Moving 
Image invites contributions that address all moving image materials, including historic 
and contemporary film, television, and video, new and emerging digital technologies, as 
well as paper and three-dimensional collections documenting the history of moving image 
media. The journal offers a compelling mix of content, including: 

	• traditional scholarly papers and historical essays, especially those utilizing research 
in film archival collections; 
	• in-depth examinations of specific preservation and restoration projects; detailed 
profiles of moving image collections or archives; 
	• interviews with leading figures in the community; 
	• behind-the-scenes looks at the techniques used to preserve and restore moving 
images; 
	• theoretical and visionary articles on the future of the field; 
	• technical and practical articles on research and development in the field; 
	• essays on the role of moving image archives and collections in the writing of 
history; 
	• reviews of books and films directly related to the archival field; 
	• illustrations, still reproductions, frame enlargements, and before-and-after image 
comparisons, many of which are readily available in the collections of AMIA members.

The Moving Image, published twice yearly by University of Minnesota Press, is refereed, 
and maintains the highest academic standards of writing.  Anyone, whether a member of 
AMIA or not, is welcome to submit manuscripts and/or proposals.  For information about
