Become a Contributor
Since the R.M. Journal is a peer reviewed academic journal for history, papers that deal with dictatorship, war, repression, genocide, human rights issues, and other topics of this nature are sought specifically. It should also be noted that while the Museum deals with regimes of the 20th and 21st centuries, the Journal seeks papers on all time periods including current human rights issues as well. Contributors are generally broken down into three categories, each with their own featured section in the Journal.
Category one is designated for professors, scholars, and academics that study history and related fields*. In this section, professional researchers will have a chance to share their research with fellow scholars and the general public. Academics who submit material for publication must go through a peer review process prior to being published.
Category two is dedicated for young researchers that have done work in history or a related field as a student of a university. This part of the Journal provides an opportunity for young researchers to share their work and ideas with professionals, their peers, and the general public. Graduate and undergraduate students who wish to publish are also subject to an academic review process prior to publication.
Category three is for individuals who are not affiliated with an educational institution but wish to share their stories or research. This section provides journalists, private researchers, and individuals or families who lived under a regime or dictatorship with an opportunity to share their stories or work that would generally not be available to a wide audience.
