Norwegian Archaeological Review
Introduction of Visual Essays
A diversity of visual material (drawings, photographs, maps, etc.) constitutes a significant part of the archaeological record. With development of new technology and more accessible devices this significance has only increased. In response to this, NAR invites visual essays as a venue for the publication of visual material and for creative interweaving of textual and visual research communication.
NAR’s visual essays follow the general aim and scope of the journal. They can be methodologically and/or theoretically oriented and deal with individual case studies or themes, which represent the scope of archaeological practice – from microscopic details of material remains to landscape and aerial approaches.
Visual essays should be a combination of text and visual material. They can include 10-15 figures and a maximum of 3500 words of text. The essays are handled in the same way as other material submitted to the journal and are subject to a peer-review process.
When submitting your visual essay to NAR please consult the general author instructions for the journal: https://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?show=instructions&journalCode=sarc20
Keep the following points in mind:
- Text should follow journal guidelines, but should not exceed 3500 words (excluding reference list).
- All figures should be uploaded separately, in best possible resolution (see Instructions for authors)
- If figure captions are not used, relevant/needed information regarding figures should be included in a “Note on figures” preceding the reference list.
- Please indicate where in the text the figures should be placed (i.e. “insert figure 1 here”). Alternatively, a manuscript including both text and figures, indicating the essay’s preferred layout, may be sent to the Editor-in-Chief following submission through the online system (NB. This comes in addition to and not instead of online submission).
- Please note that the printed version of the journal is in black & white only, whereas the online version is colour. If it is necessary for the figures to be reproduced in colour in the print version, a charge will apply (see Instructions for authors).
