The Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Museum Education welcomes the submission of proposals to guest edit themed sections and original papers on theory, training, and practice in the museum education field.

Each JME issue features an Introduction from the Editor-in-Chief, a guest edited themed section featured on the cover of the journal, and articles about new research; current trends; tools, frameworks, and case studies; perspectives; and book, exhibit, and program reviews.*

Guest editors will edit a themed section of the JME. Those interested in submitting a proposal to guest edit a section of the JME must follow the guidelines already established (see Call below for guidelines), The themed section should include a 4-6 articles, plus an introduction by the guest editor.

* The format of the JME changed in 2012 to include a smaller guest edited themed section and introduced single submission articles. The changes were made based upon feedback from colleagues, guest editors, MER Board members and other stakeholders, as well as survey data received from the Museum Education Roundtable 2011 Publication Survey Report. Read the results of the Summary of MER Publications Survey which guided these changes.
