Would you like to see your idea in print?
If so Neil Herrington, the new editor of the Journal of Education in Museums (JEM) would like to hear from you.
For those of you not familiar with JEM, it is published annually in November by the Group for Education in Museums (GEM). It contains articles by practitioners, academics and anyone with an interest in heritage learning. The articles explore heritage learning theory and practice.
We were very pleased that Neil recently joined SEMFed and came along to the event in Ipswich where, amongst other things we were looking at new initiatives there in museum learning. Articles for the journal would normally be between 2,500 and 4,000 words and can be submitted at any time, but by early September for the 2016 volume.
Neil would be pleased to discuss any of your ideas for articles and work with you on developing the article and the format if you are new to writing articles of this kind.
The journal also carries book reviews. If you come across a book that you think the readers of JEM would be interested in, then why not write a review of it. If you would like to try your hand at reviewing a book then please also get in touch.
