Call For Submissions

Call For Articles for the Boletín, The Journal of the California Missions Foundation

The publications committee is now accepting articles and article proposals for the 2016 Boletín. The journal is a peer-reviewed academic journal that features the best of California Mission Studies from a wide variety of disciples. The committee is especially interested in articles that reflect the theme of the 2016 California Missions Conference: El Camino Real de las Californias. (CMF is currently spearheading a Bi-National effort to receive an UNESCO Nomination to Name El Camino Real de las Californias a World Heritage Site).
 
The Boletín committee is also willing to entertain articles/proposals on any topic related to California's pre-statehood history.
 
Generally, the committee is committed to accepting as many articles as possible, but there are restrictions on time and space for which the committee must account. In all cases, decisions to accept or deny an article/proposal will be based on the following criteria:
Relevance to the conference theme.
The Article's timeliness and/or distinctiveness
The Article's relationship to other articles (the Boletín should showcase the diversity of the field of mission studies. The committee will try to achieve balance by not accepting too many articles related to a particular region, discipline, or subject).
 
Interested authors should submit paper proposal by June 15, 2016. A timeline
for completion of the articles will be established between the committee and selected
authors.
 
Questions can be directed to the Committee at: Boletin@californiamissionsfoundation.org
