Press release   •   Dec 10, 2015 07:45 UTC

The latest edition of the Art Bulletin of Nationalmuseum is now available. The Art Bulletin is an academic journal in digital format, published annually in English. Since 2014 it has been an entirely digital publication, available to download and read free of charge either in full or as individual articles.

The lavishly illustrated Art Bulletin highlights significant new acquisitions, publishes academic articles that shed light on Nationalmuseum’s collections, and reports on the museum’s exhibition program. Most of the contributors are on staff at Nationalmuseum. This year’s edition, Volume 21, includes ten articles about key acquisitions during the year, two academic articles, and a shorter notice. The contributors are Mikael Ahlund, Anders Bengtsson, Ulf Cederlöf, Micael Ernstell, Carina Fryklund, Thomas Fusenig, Margareta Gynning, Per Hedström, Magnus Olausson, Carl-Johan Olsson, and Eva Qviberg.

Originally a print journal, the Art Bulletin switched to digital publication in 2014 and is freely available online. The move to digital format is part of Nationalmuseum’s drive to promote open access to academic information. In its new, digital form, the Art Bulletin is completely free of charge and can be easily downloaded from the Nationalmuseum website, either as an entire journal in high- or low-resolution format or as individual articles in high-resolution format.

The Art Bulletin is published via Uppsala University’s DiVA portal, a publishing system for academic research and student theses, with a digital archive to store publications securely in the long term. The DiVA project is open to all universities, publicly funded research institutions, and government agencies in Sweden and abroad. As well as the full text of the Art Bulletin of Nationalmuseum, DiVA contains a full catalogue of all Nationalmuseum print publications. Nationalmuseum has been part of DiVA since 2013.
