About The Rijksmuseum Bulletin

The Rijksmuseum Bulletin is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal presenting scholarly articles that contribute to historical and art-historical research into the Rijksmuseum collections to an international audience of curators, scholars, students, art professionals and enthusiasts.

Scientific research into objects and works of art by museum experts is often published in The Rijksmuseum Bulletin. However, authors from outside the museum are very welcome to contribute.
