The Getty Research Journal is a peer-reviewed periodical that publishes original research under way across the Getty's programs: the Conservation Institute, Foundation, Research Institute, the Museum and Villa. Articles explore the collections of the Research Institute and the Museum, as well as the annual themes and ongoing research projects. Shorter texts highlight new acquisitions and discoveries, and also present the diverse tools for scholarship in development at the Getty.


The Journal features the work of established and emerging scholars engaging with a range of methodological approaches and covering all periods of history, from ancient to contemporary. Published annually, it seeks to foster collaborative scholarship among art historians, museum curators, and conservators internationally.


The Getty Research Journal is now available in a variety of digital formats: electronic issues are available on the JSTOR platform, and the e-Book Edition for iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Android, or computer is available for download.
