The New York State Museum Record is a peer-reviewed, open-access series published on an occasional basis by The University of the State of New York/The State Education Department. The Record publishes original volumes in the fields of archaeology, biology, ethnology, ethnography, geology, history, and paleontology. Sole- and multiple-authored monographs and compiled volumes are appropriate for the series.
Potential contributors should request a prospectus form by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. The submitted prospectus will be reviewed by the New York State Museum's publications committee for the appropriateness of the proposed volume. If deemed potentially suitable for the series, an electronic copy of the manuscript will be requested. The manuscript will be reviewed by internal and external experts selected by the State Museum. Based on the results of the review, the State Museum will make a final decision on the manuscript's appropriateness for publication in the Record series. The volume authors/editors will be notified as soon as possible regarding acceptance (with or without revision) or rejection.
