Ariadne is now closed for new submissions

We have had a reducing number of submissions for Ariadne over the last few years, and so have taken the decision to not produce another issue. The existing issues and articles will be left online as a public archive.

Target Audience

The target audience for Ariadne was librarians, museum curators, archivists and associated technical staff & managers. Articles covered topics that will be of interest to one or more of these audiences.

Authors and self-archiving

Ariadne frequently receives requests from authors for permission to place a copy of their article on their institutional or another repository. Authors are welcome to do this.

I’ve found an Ariadne article about XYZ. Can I add links to new resources for XYZ to it?

No, once published Ariadne articles are not updated - they aren’t like blog posts.
