    Hello and good day, everyone,

    I am writing to you this morning as both a member of the SAA Design Records Section and as an Editorial Board member of the American Archivist. I would like to invite you all to consider writing an article for an upcoming special design records-related section of the journal.

    The section will focus on such topics as design records management, repositories, practices, content, challenges, etc. We will also feature an image from a contributing repository for the issue's cover.

    Submitting a written work to AA is a wonderful way to reach out to your peers, contribute to the professional literature, and highlight your innovative practice and special content.

    The AA Editor and Editorial Board have designated volume 84, issue 1 (fall/winter 2021) for this dedicated content; the publication/production calendar is:

    July 1, 2020: Submissions due
    December 2020: Peer review feedback returned and final decisions made
    June 2021: Final drafts due
     

    Many submission questions can be answered at https://www2.archivists.org/american-archivist/submissions. I am also certainly happy to field any questions and you are welcome to write to me off-line (please see my contact information below).

    Thank you for considering this invitation; we look forward to your submissions! 

    Yours,
    Karen
