Contributor Guidelines

The CIPEG Journal: Ancient Egyptian & Sudanese Collections and Museums is a peer-reviewed online journal, dedicated exclusively to scholarly research on ancient Egyptian and Sudanese collections and museums around the world. 

The CIPEG Journal publishes the proceedings of CIPEG’s annual meetings and associated workshops—including both papers focused on the annual theme, and those based on general museum work and archaeological excavations conducted by museum-led missions. ‘General museum work’ includes but is not limited to: the history of Egyptian and Sudanese collections and collectors; object and provenance research; conservation treatments; exhibitions of Egyptian and Nubian art; gallery design and the interpretation of Egyptian and Sudanese collections; development of museum programmes using Egyptian and Sudanese art and collections; and general museum practice and policy in museums with such collections. Contributions not presented at annual meetings or workshops but related to these same research endeavours are also welcome.

Since the CIPEG Journal is peer reviewed, when submitting a contribution for consideration, please ensure that all documents are identified with the title of your proposed article instead of your name. In the article, please refer to yourself as ‘the author’ and avoid direct references to your own publications. Please also remove identifying personal information in the file properties of the documents submitted to ensure anonymity during peer review (double-blind system). 

All contributors are asked to follow the CIPEG Journal guidelines; contributions improperly formatted will be returned to the author.

Papers should be a maximum of 5000 words, including footnotes, but excluding bibliography, tables, and figures. Illustrations are welcome. Contributions should include an abstract of 250 words or fewer. (Minimum word count for the main text is 1000 words, excluding footnotes, bibliography, tables and figures.)

Manuscripts may be in English, French, or German. We kindly request that non-native speakers have their contribution reviewed by a native speaker before submission.
