CALL FOR ARTICLES - Digital Journal of Advanced Appraisal Practice

The new Digital Journal of Advanced Appraisal Practice is performing even  better than I had anticipated, and my viewership goals were high. The new digital journal was announced on April 12th at the ISA annual conference in Louisville, just a little over two weeks ago.

In that short period of time, the page analytics are showing over 600 views of the new journal. When we were last selling the journals in printed form, we had under 200 sales. The shift to the new digital format with complimentary viewing and downloads has certainly put the journal, its articles and contributing authors in front of fellow appraisers, allied professionals and collectors. And, we are just getting started.

The exposure and professional credibility for the journal, contributing authors and professional appraisals with goals and objectives of advancing appraisal education, professionalism and promoting qualified appraisers while educating users of appraisals is certainly being met.

The journal's sponsor, the International Society of Appraisers Private Client Services has done an excellent job in promoting the digital edition at the ISA conference and notifications to members. If you have not viewed the journal, visit by CLICKING HERE or follow the source link below for the free link and download.

The next edition of the Digital Journal of Advanced Appraisal Practice is scheduled for an October release. By that time, I hope to have had thousands of views for the Spring edition and anticipation for the next edition. I am now accepted article proposals and already have one submission and several others who are interested in contributing. Keep in mind, in this format we are keeping the number of articles between 5-8, so if you are interested in contributing, please contact me sooner rather than later. I am looking for articles from professional appraisers, art scholars, and allied professionals. You do not have to be a member of ISA to contribute. By contributing to the journal appraisers and art advisors can increase exposure, specialty expertise and career potential for high level assignments, consulting and expert witness opportunities.

If you are interested in contributing an article, please send a proposal to me via email at toddsig01@gmail.com.

I am looking for substantial and sophisticated appraisal and art market articles, with a minimum of 3,000 words (maximum of around 10,000 words), written in a professional or scholarly manner. Articles should be focused on highly developed and complex appraisal theory, methodology,  connoisseurship, collections management, appraisal marketing to HNWIs, and fine and decorative art advisory. I am not looking for general or introductory articles, as we wish to encourage appraisal content at an advanced/sophisticated level and to emphasis the middle to upper sectors for passion asset and the fine and decorative art markets.  Completed articles would be need to be submitted to me prior to September 15, 2019.
