JHNA is the open access electronic journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art. Founded in 2009, the journal publishes issues of peer-reviewed articles two times per year. These articles focus on art produced in the Netherlands (north and south) during the early modern period (c. 1400-c.1750), and in other countries and later periods as they relate to Netherlandish art. This includes studies of painting, sculpture, graphic arts, tapestry, architecture, and decoration, from the perspectives of art history, art conservation, technical studies, museum studies, historiography, and collecting history. Translations into English of significant articles published previously in other languages will appear from time to time as well. In future, the journal will engage in other forms of presentation made possible by digital technology. These may include interactive images, short videos, community blogs, photo essays with commentary, and digital art history projects, as well as groups of articles commissioned by the editors. Book and exhibition reviews, however, are published in HNAR (Historians of Netherlandish Art Reviews).
All JHNA articles are evaluated in a double blind peer review process, which seeks to assure the anonymity of the author and the reviewers. Before an article or essay is accepted for publication, it is sent to at least two knowledgeable scholars for assessment. These evaluations help to guide the editors’ decision, and in most circumstances are shared with the author. JHNA seeks to ensure the highest critical and intellectual standards.
