Archival Issues is published twice each year and has an international readership. The journal is one of the premier outlets for archival literature, and its scope extends well beyond the Midwest.
The Editorial Board of the Midwest Archives Conference strives to publish articles that will interest and educate a broad range of information professionals. Acceptable topics for articles cover the full range of archival activity. The journal also publishes reviews of current books on archival theory and practice.
Although Archival Issues publishes contributions from well-established professionals, the Editorial Board particularly encourages submissions from archivists who have not published previously. Editorial Board reviews of articles are conducted in a blind review process, and authors are usually informed of publication decisions within six weeks.
