SAMAB: The South African Museums Association Bulletin
SAMAB is an accredited journal approved by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and has been published by SAMA since 1936.
The South African Museums Association Bulletin (SAMAB) provides a forum for the publication of peer reviewed articles that promote the discussion, debate and the dissemination and exchange of information on aspects of museology, with particular but not exclusive reference to South Africa.
SAMAB also enables the communication of current issues, practices and policies regarding collections management, curatorial discourse, museum administration, research, exhibitions, visitor studies, community engagement, education, conservation and other topics relevant to the museum and wider heritage sector.
SAMAB welcomes all submissions related to the topic of museology, research papers and academically sound opinion pieces about the topic of museums. See below for guidelines on submitting articles.
Paid up individual and institutional members receive free access to SAMAB.
