This Market Table focuses on the new peer-reviewed, open access electronic journal, JHNA (Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art — www.jhna.org). The journal, in existence since June 2009, publishes two scholarly issues per year with articles on art produced in the Netherlands (north and south) during the early modern period (ca. 1400-ca.1750), and in other countries as it relates to Netherlandish art. Translations into English of articles published previously in Dutch and other languages appear from time to time as well. In future, the journal may engage in other forms of presentation made possible by digital technology, such as interactive images, short videos, community blogs, photo essays with commentary, as well as groups of articles commissioned by the editors. More broadly, the Market Table focuses on the strengths and advantages of electronic journals over conventional print publishing and on the challenges presented by the open access model.
