TORONTO, May 3, 2016 /CNW/ - Together with the National Gallery of Canada (NGC), University of Toronto Press Journals announced today the launch of the Web version of the National Gallery of Canada Review.
The National Gallery of Canada Review (ngcr.utpjournals.press) marks a new era in the National Gallery of Canada's strong tradition of scholarly activity. Following in the footsteps of the Bulletin, produced from 1963 to 1985, and the original National Gallery of Canada Review, published from 2000 to 2008, the NGCR is a vibrant online, open access resource that features the investigations and scholarly engagements of prominent curators and art historians with the Gallery's world class collections. The content featured in the NGCR is rich and varied, and is designed to include the work of a wide breadth of contributors with many areas of expertise.
The NGCR will be published annually in both French and English.
"In its content, the National Gallery of Canada Review reflects the identity of our institution and its six curatorial departments. We are very proud to re-launch this important publication and to expand its reach through the web, making it available for free. With content devoted to the study of the national collection, it will be useful both to art history researchers and to anyone wishing to discover the Gallery's treasures through the writing of our expert curators," said NGC Chief Curator and Editor-in-Chief of the NGCR, Paul Lang. "And we are very pleased to make this possible thanks to the expertise and online platform of the University of Toronto Press Journals."
"We are excited to partner with the National Gallery of Canada on the launch of the new National Gallery of Canada Review. The Review will be a fresh new addition to the University of Toronto Press's long-standing tradition of scholarly publishing excellence. Readers of the NGCR will be delighted with the rich online experience and extensive functionality this new Web will resource offer." – Antonia Pop, Senior Manager, University of Toronto Press Journals
