NOTE TO 2019 PRESENTERS: Journal Articles due June 3, 2019!

The GAS Journal documents the conference and serves as a permanent record of the lectures, presentations, and proceedings that take place each year. Many major institutions, museums, and libraries are subscribers. All GAS members receive a copy of the Journal and they may access current and past issues online.
Who submits to the GAS Journal?
  • Lecturers and lec-mo presenters are required by service agreement to submit an article to the GAS Journal.
  • Panel and forum moderators are required by service agreement to submit an article on behalf of their group. Moderators may compile short descriptions from each panelist and add a final summary.
  • Demonstrators, film presenters, and performance artists have the option to submit an article or abstract about their demo to the Journal, though it is not a requirement.
The DEADLINE for submissions is JUNE 3, 2019. If your article is not submitted by the deadline, your contribution to the conference will not be published in the GAS Journal and your honorarium will not be paid.
A sample article has been provided as an example of the quality of submissions that are typically published.
