RoundUp publishes timely feature articles in connection with the quarterly theme as well as smaller articles on professional development, funding opportunities and upcoming events. Articles may be controversial, theoretical, or journalistic – the goal is to achieve a balance of articles of interest to a wide readership. Projects undertaken by museologists across Canada or overseas are also included if they are relevant to BC.

Editorial Policy

Quarterly themes are established by an editorial committee for our feature articles, who direct the Editor to solicit related content. It is recommended that people contact Jane Lemke, Managing Editor at before submitting unsolicited con­tent. Though the content published in RoundUp does not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of the BC Museums Association, the BCMA reserves the right to reject or require edits to content at any point in the publication process due to suitability or space restrictions.
