The International Journal of the Inclusive Museum addresses the key question: How can the institution of the museum become more inclusive? The journal brings together academics, curators, museum and public administrators, cultural policy makers and research students to engage in discussions about the historic character and future shape of the museum.
The International Journal of the Inclusive Museum is peer-reviewed, supported by rigorous processes of criterion-referenced article ranking and qualitative commentary, ensuring that only intellectual work of the greatest substance and highest significance is published.

The International Journal of the Inclusive Museum encourages the widest range of submissions and aims to foster the highest standards intellectual excellence.
Available in electronic and print formats, we are committed to expanding the visibility, reach and impact of research published in the journal.
Reviewers are selected on the basis of subject matter and disciplinary expertise, and review scores based on clearly articulated criteria, leading to fairer and more precise feedback.
We take seriously the ‘peer’ of ‘peer review’. After having work accepted for publication, authors become reviewers, making the journal truly the collaborative work of a ‘Knowledge Community’. For their constructive contribution to other community members’ work, reviewers are listed as Associate Editors in the journal.
We don’t put undue weight on institutional affiliation, stage in career, previous publishing experience, national origins or disciplinary perspective. If the paper is excellent, it will be considered for publication.
Journal authors, as Knowledge Community members, have subscriber access to the journal and book series.
Authors can make their articles freely available via the Hybrid Open Access option.
